CLIENT NEWS: Three dancers from Crosby have been picked for specialist coaching by The Royal Ballet School.
Oliver Cowin, 10, Noah Finnigan, 9, and Valentina Sanna, 9, were chosen from hundreds of young hopefuls for the prestigious Associate Programme.
The trio from Crosby-based Procter Dance Academy will receive additional coaching and could be selected to perform with the Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and other ballet companies.
Lorna Cook, principal at Procter Dance Academy, said: “We are proud that Oliver, Noah and Valentina have been identified as gifted young ballet dancers. It is also a privilege for us to be working alongside The Royal Ballet School in nurturing their talent.”
