Dancer working towards competition


A dancer from Pool Academy is working towards a competition taking place in the South West later this year.

Anya, a former Pencoys Primary School pupil, has lessons at BlackLight Academy of Music and Performance.

She started dancing there last year and her favourite genres are Street and Pop although she also takes part in Contemporary and Ballet.

Anya said she will be taking part in a competition around Christmas this year.

“I am excited and nervous,” she said. “I like dance as I get to meet new people. I like the music too.

“Last Christmas I took part in a show at the Regal Theatre which I enjoyed.

“I would like to carry on dancing when I am older.”

Anya says she is enjoying life at Pool Academy and wants to have a career in engineering when she is older.
