Hi peoples, my name is Sydney Illsley and I’m 15 years old. My absolute passion is dance and performing arts, which includes; Circus, Contemporary, Ballet and Jazz, I also love costume design and have a keen interest in Sport Science, I pretty much like all Theatre (I don’t sing! 😃). I am part of Motionhouse Youth, which is fab, I have traveled around the world with some of my dancing, competing in major competitions, by far the greatest experience is meeting new people and amazing dancers.
I joined Motionhouse youth board, as it’s a great opportunity to work closer with the company, I also get to see the business side to dance and what goes into the production of the shows, as an audience you only see the final outcome, but there is so much more. I wasn’t able to dance at the beginning of the year and Motionhouse was very supportive to me, I learnt how important dance was, so I wanted to give back and help.
I am very excited to be working with Motionhouse and to work with them on new ideas and help plan to the winter fundraiser- exciting times!
