A dance school in Iron Acton has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.  The Kathryn Hurley Dance Academy has made it through to the last stages of the Dance School of the Year awards.
Entries were received from schools of all sizes across the UK and Europe with 37 schools shortlisted across four categories ranging from xschools to full time colleges.
Kathryn Hurley, who runs the lessons at Iron Acton Village Hall and whose students perform at festivals throughout the summer told the Voice; “Being selected is a wonderful culmination of many years hard work. I am extremely fortunate to teach such lovely pupils with very supportive families. It is very rewarding to see students grow from Baby Ballerinas to confident young people having gained a love of dance and theatre along the way. To be a Finalist is huge recognition for everyone’s hard work and achievements at the Academy”.
The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony which will be held at a black-tie event at the Mercure Southgate Hotel in Exeter next month.Guest of honour is the broadcaster, writer and life-long dance supporter Angela Rippon.
