Performing Arts students enjoyed a dance workshop and question and answer session with professional dancer Chloe Yeomans yesterday.

We are lucky that Chloe is an ‘industry champion’ for Performing Arts. She came to offer careers information, advice and guidance through sharing her journey, experiences and success. She also hosted a Derwen dance workshop.

Chloe is director and founder of Open Space Studios CIC in Oswestry and is owner of Chloe Elizabeth Dance Company – CEDC
Students asked lots of interesting questions, before learning a fun, choregraphed piece that she had created. We look forward to working with Chloe more again in the future!
This is what our students had to say about the visit:
Nicole: “It was amazing to meet Chloe, she inspired us with all her stories. It was so cool that she has helped create a local studio and she went dancing abroad. I would love to have my own studio one day, but I know I’d have to work very hard like Chloe does and never give up.”
Georgia: “Chloe spoke about all the styles of dance she teaches, and we were able to relate to them, as its what we learn with Opal (Derwen dance teacher). It was interesting that she was a Maths teacher for four years, and now she has her own dance school and has set up a studio. She inspired us to not give up on our dreams.”
Ciara: “She wanted us to stay fearless, I loved learning some of her choreography.”
Dance teacher Chloe said: “It was a breath of fresh air coming to speak to and teach the students at Derwen College at the workshop. Students engaged in asking so many interesting questions that have hopefully inspired some dancers to continue their passion for the creative arts. I am excited to work with this group again in the future.”
Thanks, Chloe!
