A group of South Wales dancers looked their best as they took part in an international tournament thanks to a £1,500 donation from the regional team.

Nicola Peros Ballet School used the money to fund 25 new tracksuits for pupils to wear at the Dance World Cup, which took place in June in Sitges, Spain. The school is based in Barry, where Taylor Wimpey is building new homes at the Latitude At The Quays development.

Nicola Peros, who founded the school 20 years ago, said: “The Dance World Cup is the highlight of the year for my pupils, who spend months practising their routines in order to compete at the very top level. Their performances are always top-notch so it’s lovely to be able to provide them with beautiful tracksuits that match their dancing abilities. 

“We’d all like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for the generous donation, which meant the pupils looked the part as they took on some of the world’s best ballet dancers. They were all thrilled to wear them.”

Nicola Peros Ballet School holds classes in both Barry and Cardiff for children and adults. The school focuses on quality training that adheres to the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus while providing an enjoyable and safe environment in which to study ballet.

Sara Taylor, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South Wales, said: “Nicola has been a huge positive influence on dancers of all ages from the Barry and Cardiff areas for many years, and we were delighted to support her school by funding tracksuits for the Dance World Cup. The pupils looked great in their tracksuits and were the pride of South Wales when they performed. We wish them all great success as they continue to develop their skills.”
