Year 9 Hollie dances for Disney

The bright lights are calling for Truro High Year 9 Hollie who has just starred in a Disney campaign challenging students in Dubai to get fit in 30 days.

Out of 600 auditionees, the fourteen-year-old was one of only three performers selected to dance in this international campaign.
 
This September, Hollie headed to London to shoot the campaign in the studio which is usually home to Dragon’s Den. It was a gruelling schedule for the day and saw them learn three routines from scratch before repeating them many times for the cameras.
 
Hollie said: “I couldn’t have been more excited – it’s Disney! The day was hard but so much fun and everyone on set was just so lovely. I really hope I get the chance to work with them again soon.”
 
It’s a busy time for the young dancer who, alongside her classmate Rosey, last weekend swept the honours board at the UK Street Dance South East Championships.
 
The girls helped their dance crew storm to victory to win bronze in the under 16s group category of this hotly-contested regional competition.
 
The pair also placed 5th in the duo category whilst Hollie got through to the semi-finals for solo performances.
 
Hollie is now busy preparing for this winter’s Dance Show LIVE! where she will be performing no less than five numbers in the show.
