Local dancer, 13 year old Amy Avellano from Transitions Dance Academy, has won gold medal at the Sussex Festival of Dance and Song. Amy, who is also a member of the Gibraltar National Team, participated in the senior section of the ‘Sussex Dancer of the Year’. She performed two dance routines that were especially choreographed by Gillaine Alman.

Director of M.O. Productions Seamus Byrne said: ‘Amy has once again been a great ambassador for Gibraltar and we are delighted with her performances and the result. Her participation at this event has been very well received by festival organisers, international choreographers and everyone enjoying the festival.

It has been an extraordinary educational experience and we look forward to furthering our relationship with the Sussex Festival and in hosting the winner of the Gibraltar Award at Sussex, Tara Yasmin Holland in February 2018.’
