BIG congratulations to National Youth Dance Wales, who performed alongside the National Companies of Scotland and England and France last night in Sadler's Wells. What a stunning evening of dance - awesome talent on the stage with some stunning repertoire. CYDC were PROUD to be there and support our very own CYDC dancers Anthony Matsena, Keli Matsena and Emily Robinson. WOW - you were simply beautiful on every level - emotional and PROUD. Congratulations to all the dancers of NYDW, Kerry Nicholls, Nuno Silva, Joe Fletcher, Suzie Robinson, Pauline Crossley and team for making it happen. Flying the flag for Welsh dance of the highest, artistic level. A-MA-ZING!
