Anfernee Speaks on Winning Indi-King
Anfernee Sapon, a year 13 student in Glenfield college speaks on his recent win with the Bollywood troupe at Indi-king, and about dance in our school.
What made you want to join the Bollywood team?
“Growing up as a kid I always loved dancing and coming to Glenfield College, I saw an opportunity in the notices that there was a Bollywood troupe audition, so I tried out and two days after I got in and was so happy, and so proud of myself. I met experienced dancers and they taught me things that I’d never learnt before.”
“The best part of being in the troupe is having a family and coming into the theatre and feeling welcomed. Not caring about what they think about you because you’re with your family.”
You guys are pretty dedicated, how much do you practice a week?
“5 days a week, Intervals, lunch and after schools”
How has winning the competition effected you?
“It hasn’t changed me at all. I still stay humble, I’m still the same person. As a dancer you can’t be at your best all the time. You can always get better even if you’ve experienced a lot, you can always get better.”
Lastly, is there anyone you’d like to thank?
“I’d like to thank the amazing Brigitte Knight and the whole troupe”
