Successful Student Spotlight - Matia and Chelsea
17th December 2018
We’ve had a wonderful year at Newcastle Dance Academy, with all students working hard and achieving great things. As we approach the final weeks of 2018, we would once again like to spotlight some more successful NDA students.
Following a successful audition, two of our beautiful dancers have recently been invited to attend the Royal Ballet School Spring Intensive Program in Hong Kong in 2019. Congratulations to Matia Ingrey (11) and Chelsea Potter (12)! This is an exceptional achievement, and a wonderful opportunity. The NDA family is so very proud of you both and all our hardworking, talented young dancers.
The program commences on April 17th, 2019 and concludes April 23rd. We are honoured to see two of our own set out on this adventure. The Spring Intensive Programs are held in Hong Kong each spring, and are taught by Royal Ballet School staff, as well as guest teachers. We are sure Matia and Chelsea will enjoy one week of intensive ballet training sessions.
Matia has also had great success in competing in the Ultimate Ballet Scholarship Awards in Sydney. After completing the open class on stage and making it through the cuts, Matia delivered a beautiful solo performance and she was announced as a Finalist. Well done, Matia! Beautiful dancing.
Both Chelsea and Matia have been studying with NDA for the last four years and have trained in all areas of dance. They have studied ballet, lyrical, contemporary and many other genres, and are beautiful dancers with a great passion for what they do. We are pleased and proud that your hard work and efforts have been rewarded girls, and we look forward to hearing all about your time in Hong Kong next year!
We love all of our wonderful dancers at Newcastle Dance Academy, and know that each one of them works so very hard. We are proud of all our students and their achievements as they pursue their passion for dance. We will always be here to cheer them on! Keep up the good work everyone!
