Outstanding student of the Seychelles School of Dance attends training in Stockholm

Outstanding student of the Seychelles School of Dance attends training in Stockholm ( Intermediate ballet and modern dance student, Emma Cadeau, from the Seychelles School of Dance has flown to Stockholm, where she will be undertaking a five-month internship training program at the Midgardsskolan of Umea School of Music.

The seventeen-year-old Emma Cadeau, a first-year advanced student from the SALS (Seychelles Advanced Level Studies) institution, has left Seychelles for Stockholm to pursue her long-awaited dream of becoming the first student from the Seychelles School of Dance to be enrolled in the well-reputed Midgardsskolan School of Music.

The outstanding student of the School of Dance in 2011, Emma embraced the passion for dancing at the age of five.

Over the years, dancing has become more than a hobby, but gradually translated into what she described as a “sport,” which keeps her mind and body in perfect harmony.

At the Seychelles International Airport, hours before her departure, surrounded by close friends and family, Emma spoke emotionally about her trip to Stockholm.

“Going to Stockholm is not solely an opportunity to discover new dancing techniques and enhancing my knowledge in the art of dancing, but it open doors to new challenges. The Stockholm town of Umea will be a land of discovery to make new acquaintance and indulge into a culture till now unknown to me,” she said.

Emma’s five-month intense training program with the Midgardsskolan Umea School of Dance has been made possible through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the institution and Seychelles School of Dance, which falls under the Culture Department.
Following the signing of the MOU, one student from the School of Music has benefited from the exchange program.

With students in chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics from the school of SALS, Emma said that she has to “differ her studies for a year to grasp full advantage of this exchange program.”

“My dream is to transform the passion I have for dancing into a career and become a dancing professional,” said Emma, who is portrayed by her peers and tutors as humble and an academically-keen student. The Director of the School of Dance who was at the International Airport for Emma’s departure, Pierre Joseph, said that science classes have been incorporated into her training program in Stockholm, allowing her to reap the full benefit of the exchange program.

He said that students who had followed the exchange program at the Midgardsskolan School of Music in Umea came back home impressed with their journey, and he is convinced that Emma will gain the same satisfaction.

Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, said that his ministry remains committed to unlocking possibilities for all artists and aspiring artists. “Our ministry, responsible for culture, appreciates the support we are getting from our international partners, and we are happy to be able to open doors for our young budding professionals who see the need to develop their skills, and in so doing, live their dreams,” Minister Alain St.Ange said.

Emma is due to return to Seychelles in January 2013.
