Pupils will be returning to school after the summer break – but for talented Darley Dale dancers their education will be continuing at top dance schools across the country.
Six dancers – Emily Rathbone, Daisy Rathbone, Hannah Kerry, Daisy Kerry, Daisy Edwards and Maddie Shimwell – from Claire Dobinson School of Dancing, based at the Whitworth Centre in Darley Dale, have gained places at prestigious schools.
Claire said: “I am incredibly proud to have so many dancers training at vocational schools. It is a delight to travel across the country to watch them perform.
“Their love of ballet and dance reflects in their outstanding achievements.”
