Rye Dance Centre students' festival success SUS-160404-093832001

After the previous success of Rye Dance Centre’s show, Super Duper, pupils have been taking part in recent local musical festivals of Tunbridge Wells and Hastings.

A variety of different styles and genres has been shown with many of the students being awarded trophies and medals for outstanding work and effort. The school managed to obtain 20 gold, 24 silver and 22 bronze medals collectively while Taylor Lee went on to win the trophy for most personality, and Emma Ferguson and Maya Bower won the cup for highest mark in their class.

It wasn’t just the younger pupils who saw great success either, as the adult group won the cabaret class at Hastings Musical Festival with 92 marks. All those who danced in the festivals showed countless promising performances, and everyone who competed had a wonderful time. Rye Dance Centre’s principal Joanne Fletcher choreographed most of the dances with help from the other teachers at the school. By Izzi Riggs.
