Student Focus: Isabelle
4 March 2021
At Guiseley School, we have some very talented dancers. For Sixth Former Isabelle, who started dancing before she started school, this has been a huge part of her life.
"I have been dancing since I was three years old, however I only started competing in festivals about three or four years ago," says Isabelle.
"I've taken part in lots of festivals across West Yorkshire, including the local Wharfedale Festival which was held at Guiseley Theatre. In 2018 I had the opportunity to dance at Sadler's Wells Theatre in London. I have taken part in many workshops for different types of dance, but now I focus on tap and modern dance so I can balance this more easily with schoolwork."
Isabelle explained to us that during the pandemic, dance classes have continued via Zoom, though it’s a different atmosphere from being at an event with the whole dance family.
We hope that Isabelle will be able to meet up with her dance family again soon and we wish her all the best with her dancing.
