San Marco dancer receives big break in Philadelphia
Clara Trednick of San Marco was selected to attend Philadelphia’s acclaimed Rock School for Dance Education for the 2015-2016 school year.
Formerly a rising sophomore at The Bolles School, Trednick participated in a five-week intensive summer program before being offered a position as a full-time student at the prestigious Philadelphia school, where she will continue her academic and dance training. Eventually she hopes to pursue dance at the college level and perform with a professional dance company.
Although sad to lose Trednick as a student, Bolles Director of Dance Angela Blackledge said she is thrilled that her dancer was able to seize one of the dance profession’s biggest breaks.
“Building upon dance education at The Rock is one of the most prestigious honors a dance student can achieve, and I am thrilled Clara is able to pursue her education in this way,” Blackledge said. “Of course we are sad she won’t be with us at Bolles this school year, but she is taking her dance to the next level and that speaks volumes about the kind of experience she’s had here in our program.”
When she was in seventh grade at Bolles, Trednick began training in the upper school dance program. While at the Bolles’ Bartram campus, she received the school’s dance award in grades seven and eight. She also participated in The Bolles Repertory Dance Company and was elected by her peers to receive The Most Outstanding Ballet Award for 2015. Trednick also made first and second honors nearly every quarter during her tenure at Bolles and was enrolled in numerous honors classes during her academic experience there.
