Two Curious dancers have been offered places at UK’s top dance conservatoires. Harriet Leaf and Charlie Nayler have both had incredible achievements in being successful in the highly competitive world of dance auditions. We are so proud of both dancers and have no doubt they will go far in whatever direction they choose to take. Both Harriet and Charlie have been with Curious right from the beginning and their journeys have been amazing to be part of. The amount of hard work, dedication, pain and passion that goes into achieving their level of ability and promise cannot be underestimated. Each dance school can only take a fraction of auditionees from all around the country and abroad so to have two from The Curious Dance Company is a true testament to the quality of provision and support we can offer.
For many young dancers their training and experience comes from a variety of sources. This is very much the case with Harriet who attends Rigney Bank dance school; has been a member of Cumbria Youth Dance Company and Ludus Youth Dance Company as well as many other dance experiences. Harriet is a beautiful dancer with a very striking stage presence.
Charlie came to dance relatively late and has received his dance training so far from me (Jasper Marriott) and Megan Alder-Cox. Together we run The Curious Dance Company. I teach Charlie dance at QES and Megan delivers his private lessons. Charlie has an athletic physicality and a powerful performance ability.
We are very proud of them both (I know I have said that twice!)
This week’s YouTube video is focused on Charlie and features his audition solo.
