Poppy from Stanmore Academy shares her story.
“My name is Poppy, I'm 12 and I go to Kings Secondary School. I dance 4 evenings a week in various classes. At the weekend I enjoy spending time with my friends, walking with my family and meals out.
I joined Stanmore minis when I was 5, I then moved into the juniors and now I'm in Stanmore Academy. My first dance teacher Louise along with my current teacher Mitch give me the passion to dance and progress.
I really enjoy the atmosphere and fun we have at Stanmore Academy. My teacher Mitch is amazing, and he always supports me. This class has been a gateway into other dance opportunities.
I love performing. This class gave me the confidence to perform. I couldn’t imagine my life without the many friends I have made and the happy times I’ve had through dancing.
Above all I believe dance should be fun and I always look forward to a Wednesday evening knowing that I’ll have fun.”
