Congratulations to all 4 Berkshire County Dance Company Youth members who took part in the Berkshire Young Dance Artist of the Year Competition in March. All 4 company dancers, and students from Brakenhale School, were finalists in the competition and each walked away with a prize.
Jaime Leishman took home the Judges Choice Award, Tyler Jones won the Runner up Choreography category and Jade Ackuaku won the Contemporary/Lyrical solo category. Freya Harris won the Choreography category and went on to be crowned Berkshire Young Dance Artist of the Year with her piece ‘Dystopia’.
All of the performers gave fantastic performances and worked so hard in their tech rehearsals to make the piece a great success. Keep an eye on these dancers. They will go far in the dance world!
