A Young Dancer
Freya, a Peppard Primary schoolgirl, has been enjoying success as a young dancer. She has been learning ballet and other styles of dance for six years, since she was two! Currently she is practising for her Grade One.
Freya does two medal tests a year where she performs a dance on stage. These dances are awarded a score and when she gets a really high mark then she goes on to the British Arts competition. Recently Freya went to the semi-finals in Watford and was awarded a merit. She says that she enjoys watching her friends perform and they always support her. Competitions can be nerve-wracking. She said, “The last one, when I had to do a curtsey my legs were shaking!”
Freya told us that she was inspired to dance by watching Strictly Come Dancing on the television with her family. She hopes to do ballroom dancing when she’s older and perform on Strictly as a professional dancer.
Freya would definitely recommend dance to anyone. She said, “Sometimes, when the dances are very fast they can be tricky but it is really fun and energetic!”
Finally, we ask every interviewee what their favourite sandwich filling is, Freya loves tuna with sweetcorn.
We think that Freya is going to do very well and we look forward to seeing her dancing on Strictly!
