SKEGNESS Mayor Steve Kirk has priased the dedication and hard work of all those involved in the Lisa Jay Stage Institute after it held a spectacular awards ceremony last week.

Over 250 pupils demonstrated their dance and singing techniques at the awards evening in the Embassy Theatre last Tuesday

Every pupil received a certificate and over 43 trophies and cups were awarded to some lucky pupils for achievements within their chosen dance genres.

Two special awards were also handed out in recognition of the IDTA top exam mark of the year. These went to Kris West for Freestyle branch with 93% and Megan Naylor for Theatre branch with 88%.

The Institute has also supported four pupils though the bursary scheme.

The highlight of the evening’s

awards ceremony was the announcement of this year’s Scholar recipient. The Scholarship was given to Louisa Baker who will receive free class, exam and competition fees, along with other financial support to the value of £1,500 funded by Lisa Jay personally.

Lisa Jay said: “The teachers and I chose the most deserving pupil as Louisa is a lovely young lady, very popular and extremely gifted.”
