'Magnificent Seven' for Roedean dancer

20/01/2011

Grace Morrison has won seven dance trophies and medals at this year's Worthing Music and Arts Festival.

Grace was awarded the Bogner Regis Cup for the highest mark in Senior Tap which was presented by the Mayor of Worthing. 

She also won the Tanya Allen Cup for the highest aggregate mark in Tap, Modern, and Song & Dance, two gold medals for tap and a duet and silver medals for performances in Greek, Modern and Song & Dance.

Grace attends a number of lessons a week at Glendale Theatre Arts School and Roedean, ranging from ballet to commercial dance. 

She said: “Ballet lessons at Roedean and all the support I receive from school have been inspirational and encourage me to achieve my potential.

"The dance teachers at Roedean and Glendale are brilliant and really helpful.  They are very encouraging, but also disciplined which ensures that each move is perfectly executed.”

Roedean was also supportive when Grace was performing in Billy Elliott at the Victoria palace Theatre in the West End. She featured in 200 performances over 18 months. During this time, Roedean provided special classes and helped her catch up with her lessons during the week.

Following her success at Worthing, Grace is now preparing to compete in the Brighton Festival in April which will be held at Roedean.
