Charlotte Smitham, Holly Campbell, Chloe, Cerys Jones, Ruby and Emily Wall took part in a two-night fundraising dance show recently.

The girls, who are members of The Annette School of Dancing in Camborne, took part in the event which saw both group and solo pieces performed.

The evening, attended by scores of parents and friends, helped to raise £2,400 for the charity St Julia’s Hospice.

Charlotte, who dances every Saturday, said: “The show was held at the Wesley Chapel in Camborne. There were quite a few people in the audience.”

Chloe said: “We held the dance show for charity and we are proud to have been able to raise so much money through dancing. Lots of people came to watch including friends and parents.”

Amanda Richards, from Pool Academy, is the girls’ dance teacher.

She said: “The girls did really well across both performances and it was a pleasure to watch them dance. They all did very well and I was very impressed with their skill.

“It was a wonderful end to a great event to discover we had raised more than £2,000 for charity.”

Emily Cromey, Head of Faculty for Art, Music, Drama and PE, said: “Congratulations girls on raising so much money for charity through your dance. It is always wonderful to hear of our students doing well both inside and outside of school.”
