Perse dancer fights off competition
2 May 2013
Flo Seabright has recorded a Perse first in fighting through extraordinary competition to secure a place on a 3 year course at the London Contemporary Dance School – the first time The Perse have sent someone to this prestigious institution.
Flo started dancing aged 4, and won a place on the London Senior Ballet Associateship when she was 10. In the 8 years since then Flo estimates that she has spent up to 15 hours a week dancing, and also had time to fit in summer schools with the English National Ballet, Yorkshire Ballet Seminars and the Ballet Boyz. This works out at an incredible 6500 hours of dancing, the equivalent of starting dancing now and not stopping until mid-February 2014!
Flo said, “At The Perse I have been lucky enough to have teachers who have been very understanding about the amount of dancing I do, as well as the huge amount of physiotherapy appointments I have had to schedule during school days due to multiple injuries!”
The London Contemporary Dance School awarded around 40 places from over 4000 applications, so the competition was fierce. Flo modestly claimed, “I was so fortunate to get this place and am incredibly excited about it!”
Huge congratulations to Flo on this magnificent achievement. We wish her the very best of luck on the course.
