Tretherras Students secure places at the Cornwall Youth Dance Company

Three Year 8 Newquay Tretherras students have secured themselves places in the prestigious Cornwall Youth Dance Company.
The Cornwall Youth Dance Company (CYDC) is Cornwall’s flagship contemporary dance company for dancers aged between 13-19, offering members the opportunity to work with visiting choreographers, companies and dance projects.
Trinity Mallows, Olivia Cornes and India Colquhoun all successfully gained a place at the CYDC after a gruelling seven-hour audition.
Olivia said, “Even though it was a really tiring day, it was all worth it to find out we had got in. I can’t wait to start!”
Mrs Alecock-Smith, Dance teacher at Tretherras said, “It was a long day for them but their passion and enthusiasm for dance obviously shone through! They have a fantastic season of dance to look forward to and I am really looking forward to watching their forthcoming performances with the CYDC. I wish them every success in their new venture and look forward to having them share their experiences with their fellow dancers here at Tretherras.”
