A DANCE student is celebrating her acceptance into a prestigious dance school.

St Bedes High pupil Lucy Holdsworth, 12, who is a student at Shadsworth Dance School, Blackburn, was delighted to hear about her acceptance to Chester’s Hammond Dance School.

Teacher Zoe Taylor said she was ‘incredibly proud’.

She said: “Lucy had done really well just to get an audition with Hammond’s — it is right up there with the Royal Ballet.

“To be accepted at this level is also impressive.

“The 12-15 year-old-level is very competitive because the children have been dancing for so long.

“We are so thrilled for her”.

Lucy will have two lessons a month with teachers who are former professional dancers at the Chester school, founded in 1917.
