Dancing twins gain places on top course

First published in Otley

Twin sisters from Guiseley have both won places at a prestigious London dance school.

Esther and Frankie Johnston, 18, have beaten off competition from hundreds of other young hopefuls to secure places on the sought-after commercial jazz course at The London Theatre School.

The girls, who are former pupils of Guiseley School, had to undergo an intense audition to secure a place at the school.

Their proud mum Jude Johnston said both girls had been pupils at the West Yorkshire School of Performing Arts since childhood, and had both shown a natural gift for dance, excelling in all disciplines.

Esther and Frankie, are both studying a two year Performing Arts (Dance) diploma at York College, where they passed their first year with distinction and are on track for doing the same again this year.
