We are absolutely delighted to announce that our three Danscentre students, who took part in the 2021 RAD Dance Challenge, have won all three awards available!
All candidates were judged on a solo performance by Gerard Charles the Artistic Director of RAD. This years’ Dance Challenge competition was held virtually, and students also had the chance to participate in a Masterclass with Céline Glittens (Principial dancer at Birmingham Royal Ballet) and Hubert Essakow (ex Royal Ballet and choreographer).
The prizes awarded were the ‘Antoinette Sibley Scholarship’ presented to the overall winner of each level:
o Level 1: Scott Milne- Choreographer Karen Berry: https://youtu.be/PYLp4maz9Mk

Additionally, a Choreographic Award, made available by the Lynn Wallis Bursary Fund was awarded to Ava-Lily Reid from Level 1 with Choreographer Lorna Scott: Launching Thurs 24th June - https://youtu.be/U-CRUn4aQrc
Huge congratulations to all – a real celebration for Danscentre acknowledging the hard work and continued training throughout the past year.
