Talented youngsters wow crowds at show
A GROUP of talented youngsters hosted their own Britain’s got Talent-style show — but there could only be one winner.
Seven-year-old Pearl Thompson-Gleave shone with her performance of a song she wrote herself — Sitting on a Bench.
Other acts from the youngsters, who all ranged between four and 11, included an acrobatic gymnast, ballet dancers, a dance troupe that to Gangnam Style, and a singer who performed Kesha’s Die Young.
The children, who put on 15 acts in total, were all a part of Pamela Knowles Dance — a dance school based in Horwich, and performed in front of their parents and judge Helen Ttofa(correct).
Dance teacher Pamela Knowles set her pupils to task last week to come up with acts for a talent show, which was hosted at Twizzles Dance Club, to end her summer dance school.
Miss Knowles said: “Pearl Thompson-Gleave was fantastic. She impressed the judge because she wrote and performed her own song and she’s only seven.
“She’s worked really hard all week on her song and deserved the winning trophy.
“The other acts ranged from singers, dancers, group performers — we even had a gymnast who performed acrobatics.
“The Gangnam Style dancers went down well, as did the One Direction singers.
“What was really nice to see was the confidence that the children had whilst they were on stage.
“I’m really happy with all the children — especially because I had no idea what they were going to be doing.
“It’s obvious that they have worked really hard all week and I’m proud of them all.”
