I am delighted that we have been able to identify the next recipient of The Duke of York Scholarship. She is Tamzin O’Garro. Tamzin was born in Enfield and attended Winchmore School and La Swap Sixth Form. She started dancing at the age of 6, although largely in jazz and hip hop, and was introduced to contemporary dance at school. Tamzin’s raw talent was identified in her audition and she has gone from strength to strength in her first year with us. During her first term she was achieving results in the low 50′s, but at the end of the year she obtained 68 in her performance studies, a wonderful achievement. She was overjoyed to receive the scholarship and I have attached a photo of her proudly holding her certificate.
Deepraj Singh, our inaugural scholar, has also had a very positive year. He has pushed himself really hard achieving 77% in his term three contemporary technique module. His own choreography was chosen to be performed at the end of year Graduation performances.
