The annual dance show at Newquay Tretherras, now in it’s seventh year, was held on the 4th and 5th June and featured a variety of expressive performances from a range of age groups.

Students from Years 7-13 performed as well as ex-students and children from local community dance schools who were invited by Tretherras to showcase the fantastic dance talent in Newquay.

Pupils choreographed creative pieces in their own time, from large dance numbers to solo performances, which were then selected to feature in the production.

The show, which was originally started to raise money for mirrors in the Tretherras dance studio, now uses the profit raised from ticket sales to fund dance projects including workshops and theatre visits.

Part of the performance was also shown to Year 5 pupils from local primary schools to inspire any budding young dancers.

Libby Malone, a Year 10 Dance student commented, “”When I was in Year 5, I watched the dance show and knew I wanted to come to Tretherras to dance. Five years on and I’m now leading the Year 7 club as a GCSE dance leader – the same club I started in when I came here!”

Mrs Alecock-Smith, dance teacher at Tretherras said, “I am immensely proud of our students on a regular basis, but no more so than during the annual dance showcase – they’ve been fantastic. “

She continued, “It has also been a real privilege to work with many of the dance companies that operate in Newquay and I love the rare opportunity to collaborate with them.”
