Congratulations to dance student Tess Lydon for winning the HSBC Breakthrough Award at the Prince’s Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards 2014, presented at Sage Gateshead.

Although dipping in and out of dance classes at Dance City for several years as a way to escape a difficult and painful childhood, in 2013 Tess signed up for the Prince’s Trust Get Started in Dance programme, delivered by Dance City. Through this programme Tess has been inspired to enrol on the Gateshead BTEC in Dance, delivered in partnership with Dance City and her ambition is to go on to study dance at University and travel the world as a choreographer.
