Horsham School of Dance’s Successful Six

Six students from The Horsham School of Dance were picked to appear in Peter Pan, running at the Capitol from Friday 13 December. (See image: Top row left to right is Olivia and Abbie Judd and Amelia Edson, and kneeling are sisters Lili and Caitlin Harding, with Alfie Milborrow centre.)

The successful students have performed in Panto in previous years, so know what’s in store. Rehearsals start in the next couple of weeks and they are said to be looking forward to meeting the other cast members, learning all the new routines, and hearing some of the old jokes! 10 year old Lili said: “It’s hard work, but it’s really exciting to perform on stage alongside professional actors and dancers.”

It’s been an exciting time at Horsham School of Dance with a change of ownership in September and lots of new classes being offered. Principal, Annie Dunkley explained: “It’s important for aspiring dancers to be able to turn their hands (and feet!) to many different styles of dance, and our students’ success at Panto every year shows that their hard work has paid off.

“Most of our dancers take ballet, as that is what builds the best foundation, but we also offer contemporary, modern, tap and musical theatre classes. Some will go on to dance professionally, but many just come for fun and for the friends they make. My goal is to nurture a life-long love of dancing, and to encourage as many people as possible to have a go!”
