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 environment.
We extend a warm welcome to
Linda Young our Dance Adjudicator for 2019
Linda started dancing at the age of 3 and completed her training at the Nesta
Brooking School of Dance, London. She taught in the UK and Canada before
founding and running her own school in North London for over 20 years. She has
been pleased to see many of her ex-students progress to vocational training and
careers in the theatre.
As a member of the Cecchetti Society, Linda worked on the sub-committee
responsible for the creation of the Performance Awards and was a proud recipient
of the Peter Pearson Scholarship. Linda attained Fellowship status of the
Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance in 2003.
Raised in Highbridge, Linda was an enthusiastic dance participant in this
festival for many years. As a teacher, she encouraged her pupils to take part,
and is now delighted to adjudicate for the festival and share her love of dance
with other enthusiasts.
