Alongside being a GCSE dance student, Daniel's hard work and passion for the subject have enabled him to gain a place on the 'The Lowry Centre of Advanced Training Scheme' based in Manchester. After a tough audition, Daniel was selected to be part of the scheme last September and is involved in regular performances at various different venues both in Cumbria and the North West of England. Daniel is also part of Eden Youth Dance, a fantastic platform for young dancers to be part of performances within Eden. An excellent achievement.
