SophieMooreYear 11 student Sophie Moore has been dancing with Italia Conti Associates for 4 years. In summer 2015, she was awarded 'The Jazz Cup'.

'I was shocked when I received the overall cup for Jazz,' said Sophie. 'Jazz fills the commercial world of dance. It's developed into the dance form I love the most.'

Sophie was also awarded best in class for Ballet. 'Ballet technique is the basis of all dance forms,' said Sophie. 'It takes time, effort and dedication'. 

'This is a truly outstanding achievement for Sophie,' said her Mum, Joanna. 

Sophie's recent Conti Show 'Don't Walk Dance' was a sell out two day event at The Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells, and she also took part in a recreation of the music video for 'Sugar' by Maroon 5. The video was broadcast live on the CBBC Channel and during the summer.

'I'm truly proud of my achievements,' said Sophie. 'and would encourage all dancers to follow their dreams.'
