The Dance Section offers something for
everyone with classes from Ballet to Hip Hop and Greek to Song and
Dance. Our competitors range in age from 3 years to Senior Citizens and
everything in between.
The principal aim is for our dancers to gain performance experience and
to have fun showcasing their work in a relaxed yet professional
The Dance Section of the 2017 Festival showcased the
amazing talent of competitors ranging in age from the youngest at 4 years to the
very glamorous Adult ladies aged – well that would be telling!
Each day the audiences were treated to performances in all styles and genres of
dance from classical to the innovative and the downright whacky.
We were thrilled to welcome Linda Young, our professional adjudicator this year,
because Linda is a local girl who was inspired to follow a career in dance after
her debut performance at The Highbridge Festival aged just 3. She went on to
train in London and to work in Canada and the UK running her own dance school
for 20 years.
We are already planning the new syllabus for 2018 and look forward to welcoming
new competitors and audiences alike.
Dance and Speech & Drama will be held at
Princess Theatre and Arts Centre Princess Street Burnham on Sea TA8 1EH
