Dance

Some Queen Anne’s girls have been travelling the globe to compete in their sport. Last week Madeleine P was in Barcelona competing for Team England in the finals of the Dance World Cup. She went through to the finals after performing a Contemporary solo  to “Jealous” by Labrinth back in October of last year.
