As part of HFC Youth Dance Company, two Tretherras students, Olivia Cornes and India Colquhoun, are to perform in London in December after placing in the top 3 of an online national dance competition.
The competition, ‘Dance Your City’, asked dance groups to submit a 90 second video of a performance piece to the online contest. Members of the public were then able to vote online for their favourite performance.
The top voted groups will now perform in front of a panel of judges in London, with the overall winner performing at the Barbican Theatre in February alongside a professional dance company.
Olivia and India commented, “We are so excited that we get to go and perform in London. Thanks to everyone that voted for our video as we came second in the country by just one vote which is amazing!”
Tretherras dance teacher, Mrs Alecock-Smith said, “I am so proud of the girls commitment and enthusiasm since their original audition in September and wish them every success for their performance to the judges.”
She continued, “We are appealing to everyone to keep their fingers and toes crossed as the opportunity to perform at a prestigious London venue does not occur very often for Cornish performers.”
