Humphry Davy School 29 Mar 2021 Massive congratulations to HDS 2020 leaver, Luca, who was selected to dance on the Live final of The Voice UK! Luca travelled to London for a week of rehearsals with five other dancers and performed in three numbers on the show including the judges opening song! What a fantastic opportunity! Luca was the youngest of the dancers and for his first professional job, this is an extremely popular Saturday night ITV show, televised live so he certainly dived straight in at the deep end. Luca loved every minute and described it as 'intense and hard work' but 'amazing'. He continues to train at The Big Dance Company in Penzance with his mentor Lukas Mcfarlane while studying at Penwith College. Well done Luca, we are extremely proud to hear of your achievements and look forwarded to hearing of all your future successes! #HDSAlumni
