A budding young performer from Abbots Langley, Lauren Hailstone, 10, has been awarded the prestigious “Mayor’s Shield” by the Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, at The Dan Tien’s Annual performing arts show at The Radlett Centre last month.
The Mayor’s Shield was first presented by former Mayor Dorothy Thornhill 10 years ago at the Dan Tien’s first singing, acting and dancing showcase and is given to a student who excels across the board, stands out from their peers and who has an exceptional attitude in class.
Co-principal Amy Lazzerini said, “Lauren won because of her fantastic work ethic, her sunny nature and the huge progress she’s made in the last 12 months. We are delighted to be able to celebrate her fantastic achievement as well as all of the award winners; they have worked exceptionally hard this year and should all be very proud of themselves.”
Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said, ‘It was a real honour to join the award ceremony for The Dan Tien Performing Arts School and see their fantastic performances. Not only is the standard of performance of this group really high, it is incredibly friendly too. It was noticeable that whenever a winner was announced, everyone else was delighted for them. The Dan Tien have gone from strength to strength over the last ten years and I wish them every success in the future.”
The Dan Tien, based in the Harebreaks Community Hub in North Watford, offers a huge variety of high quality training in singing, acting, dancing and music in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and is now accepting new pupils in all classes.
