IT PROVED to be a little trip down memory lane for a number of Fowey Community College's Year 7 Drama and Dance students when they ventured back to Fowey Primary School for a performance.

On January 20 the primary school pupils were left transfixed as they watched the dance students going through their paces, including a routine set to the music of Rihanna, and a piece called 'Toy Story' which the dancers had choreographed in just three weeks.

Lucinda Dennes, dance teacher at Fowey Community College, said: "I am really proud of the girls who have all worked hard in their lunchtime dance club and off-curriculum fortnightly Thursday sessions.

"They were all excited to perform to their former teachers and demonstrate what they have been learning since moving up to top school."

The drama students took to the stage to perform three pieces that make up a part of their London Academy of Music and Dance (LAMDA) studies.

"This group is very talented. Some of the students were involved in last year's Du Maurier Festival," said Louisa Hall, drama teacher at Fowey Community College. "In fact they're so talented we've skipped Grade 1 and entered them straight into Grade 2 LAMDA."

Fowey Primary head teacher, Chris Wathern, was delighted to see that his former pupils have settled so well into Year 7.

"It's fantastic seeing so many past pupils coming back to Fowey Primary and sharing their strengths with our school," he added. "All the Year 7 drama and dance students had our children captivated with their skills and confidence."
