Dancers flying the flag for their country


Two students from Wilmslow High School have have been selected to be part of Team England and compete in the Dance World Cup in Portugal, this summer.

Jess Dixon (Year 9) and Lucia Holt (Year 7) feel very honoured to be picked to represent their country in the Dance World Cup which is held every year with 54 countries competing to be World Champion.

This will be Jess' 3rd year competing at international level and Lucia's 2nd.

The girls won a bronze medal in 2016 in ballet and are hoping to bring a medal home for their country once again this year. Jess has danced in both ballet and modern dance troupes in previous years and this will be Lucia's first year as a soloist ballet dancer.

Lucia has also been selected to be Team Captain for England.
