Wildcats students set to take to the stage with strictly star

Wildcats Academy, a full and part time performing arts school based in Stamford are preparing to support Strictly winner Pasha Kovalev at his upcoming performance in Peterborough.

On Saturday, April 25th students aged 8-20 years from the school will be performing as part of Pasha’s UK tour – ‘Life through Dance’ at The Cresset, Rightwell, Peterborough.   This is the second time the school have been asked to provide dancers to support the show, having taken part in 2014.

The students will be performing 2 dance medleys, one a mixture of songs from boy bands and another 70’s mix, both chosen by Pasha and his team.  The pieces have been choreographed by Wildcats dance teacher Vince Williams and Course Co-ordinator Kelly-Ann Gordon.  Vince has worked in TV and film for many years, having recently choreographed for the feature film ‘Nativity 3’ as well as the Eastenders 2014 Children in Need dance.  Kelly-Ann runs the Wildcats Post 16 Academy and has herself worked as a dancer in numerous shows and events.

Caz Dolby, Creative Director said ‘The children are very excited about performing alongside Pasha in his UK tour show – this opportunity is just another way in which part time and full time Wildcats students can benefit from being involved in real life performances which give a wealth of experience in working within the performing arts industry.’
