Zoe leaps to London

Zoe leaps to London

Senior CSBS dancer Zoe is beginning her fulltime training at London Studio Centre...

Zoe Young (17) successfully auditioned for the BA Hons degree in Theatre Dance. She also received offers from other dance colleges and a number of unconditional offers to study at University too!  London Studio Centre is recognised as a well established and renowned training college for world class performers and we are very excited to follow Zoe's career! 

Successful and accomplished dancer

Zoe is a very popular senior student and has achieved great success in her 15 years of dance training with Central Scotland Ballet School including excellent exam results in all dance styles having gained up to advanced levels in tap, ballet and acrobatics. As a member of both our Starshine Cheer and Dance teams, Zoe has had great competition success as both part of the group and as a soloist winning a host of trophies and prizes across the UK and representing CSBS at the Royal Academy of Dance Awards Day. She also represented Scotland as part of the CSBS Starshine team in the European Championships 2016 in Vienna, and as a soloist and small group dancer in the Dance World Cup 2018 in Barcelona. Closer to home, she has won many medals at our annual Choreography Competition, as well as end-of-year awards for progress over the years in a range of styles, and represented CSBS and Starshine at the Falkirk Sports and Arts Awards. 

Zoe has also been a popular class helper in junior classes, holiday classes, and acrobatics over many years and has been training toward her teachers' qualification in acrobatics. She has also performed as a 'mermaid' for our little preschool dancers on a number of occasions. She has represented CSBS on STV Live in recognition of our charity fundraising for the STV Appeal.

As well as competitions and exams, Zoe has performed across Scotland, the UK, and the world with CSBS including notable events such as the opening of the Commonwealth Games 2014; dancing as part of the Pasha Kovalev UK Tour; performing as a corps de ballet and soloist in full length ballets with the Russian State Ballet; a soloist in CSBS dance displays and in Majors ballet productions. She successfully auditioned for the Performers College Elite training scheme last year and attended classes once a month.

Unfortunately, like the rest of our 2020 leavers, we missed the opportunity to showcase her skills in our dance displays due to the cancellation of performances in the Covid-19 pandemic, but hope to see her perform again soon!

We wish her all the best for her training and look forward to following her career!
