Student success 4MDT Youth Company perform at Brighton Fringe Festival

Isobel Walker and Laura Webbe joined 4Motion Dance Theatre Company on their 4-day performance tour to Brighton Fringe Festival over the May half term. Isobel and Laura are company members of 4Motion's youth company- 4MDT Youth Co, working with 4Motion's Directors Elaine Macey and Dean Soden every week at the Firestation Arts Centre. 4MDT were invited to perform along side the professional dance company in Brighton, presenting their current performance titled 'Boom Town' before every professional performance. They performed four times over two days to a paying audience, and did an amazing job!

Dean and Elaine were very proud of Izzy and Laura, they performed and acted as true professionals and were a joy to be around. Their bubbly personalities and helpful skills in making tea for everyone also kept the 4Motion team smiling!
