JUST days before competing against the world’s best dancers, girls at Glendale Theatre Arts School were paid a special visit by a celebrity dancer.
Bethany Rose, who has appeared on Britain’s Got Talent and the BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance show, visited the girls at Glendale’s studio, in Penfold Road, on Saturday, June 25.
Then, on Monday, June 27, about 50 girls from the school travelled to Paris, where they competed in the DanceWorld Cup at Disneyland.
Dance teacher Charlotte Summers said the visit of a celebrity dancer had been morale-boosting for the girls, who range in age from six to 18.
She said: “The girls were really excited about Bethany visiting them, and they were all having their photo taken with her.
“Even though a lot of what she was saying was similar to the advice we give, the girls really take it in when it’s someone like Bethany, whom they recognise from the TV and look up to.”
