"It’s been great to work with professional choreographers like Jean Abreu and Sally Marie (Sweetshop Revolution) - we get loads of opportunities." Interviewing Charlotte Vincent
"Performing in public spaces in the city centre is really scary and nerve racking alongside all the other professionals but once you have done it you feel really good - it’s such an achievement."
"My proudest moments have been performing in general across the year - we get loads of opportunities like performing as part of Dedications and Jump Start and then we got to create solos for performance through the STAND programme. After that we worked with Jean Abreu which really helped my confidence and one of my highlights was working with mapdance who created a piece on us for Jump Start. It was awesome."
