Nine-year-old Millie Haywood of West Bridgford has recently been offered a place on the Young Dancers programme at Elmhurst Ballet School – another step towards achieving her dance dream.
Millie, who along with twin sister Claudia, is a pupil at the Sandra Taylor School of Dance West Bridgford, will begin her training at Elmhurst in September.
Elmhurst, in association with Birmingham Royal Ballet, is a world-renowned centre of excellence for the training and education of ballet dancers.
Its patron is the Duchess of Cornwall and their vice-president is celebrated dancer Carlos Acosta.
Sandra Taylor said: “I am extremely happy for Millie and so proud to be her dance teacher.
“I am certain she has a wonderfully exciting time ahead. She has shown great promise from her first class and now is her moment.”
