PROMISING dancer Alice Berry has won a scholarship to a prestigious performing arts school in Surrey.
The 16-year-old passed her audition for Laine Theatre Arts earlier this year and will start in September.
The college was founded by dance teacher and former professional dancer Betty Laine OBE.
Alice, from Oakholme Rise, Worksop, will study for a Musical Theatre Diploma.
“It was a little bit scary, but I just got on with it really,” she said.
“I did a solo routine and sang Somewhere That’s Green from Little Shop of Horrors infront of the head.”
Alice has been dancing from the age of two and enjoys performing a mixture of dance genres.
“Ballet, tap, jazz, modern, acrobatics, musical theatre,” she listed.
“I don’t have a particular favourite but enjoy the spirit of the West End.”
She is to perform at Disneyland Paris in August with Dinnington-based Julie Turner Stage Academy.
Julie Turner said: “She has done really well, we are very pleased for her.”
“Alice has been with me since she was two-years-old, we are really proud of her.”
Alice’s mum Alison was thankful to the academy.
She said: “It’s unbelievable really, we didn’t expect anything but she has done really well. She wouldn’t be here without Julie and Jackie.”
