Dancing her way to the top!
Life couldn’t be better for one Hartlepool youngster who is aiming high to fulfil her dreams in dancing with some help from award-winning engineering specialists, AXIOM Engineering.
Eleven-year-old Ava Gordon has been dancing since the age of two when she began to learn steps at the Val Armstrong School of Performing Arts. As her skill and confidence grew, Ava began to compete in her age categories in different genres of dance including acro, ballet, tap and modern.
After winning numerous championship titles both as a solo artist at the Theatre Dance council Championships and also as part of a team at the British Troupe Championships, Ava’s most recent achievement came last year in Portugal. She was a gold medal winner in acro dance at the 2019 Dance World Cup in Braga, where at 10 years old represented Team England in the age category 10-14.
This year’s Dance World Cup (DWC) will be held in the Cinecitta World Theme Park in Rome which begins on June 26th until 4th July 2020. Ava will be competing in the 10-14 acro section as a soloist along with contemporary modern, a duet, trio and several troupes.
Her enthusiasm, energy and achievements at such a tender age attracted AXIOM to provide support with Ava’s up and coming dance adventure. With such fierce dedication and drive to succeed, AXIOM recognised how much this meant to the youngster.
Adam Potter, AXIOM Managing Director said, “It is so refreshing to see young people in the area with so much talent and are driven to work hard to succeed. Ava has already demonstrated how hard she has worked to achieve so much at such a young age. We are delighted to provide financial support with this year’s Dance World Championships and wish her the very best of luck – we know she will do us proud”.
