Hannah Reid, 18, who The Emma Coombs Dance Academy, said: “I love the feeling of being on stage. Letting an audience into a new world and feeling completely absorbed in performing.

“Dancing with EYB has given me the opportunity to tackle a full ballet. I’m so excited for that feeling of seeing the audience for the first time. That’s one of the main things I’ve missed during the pandemic.

Paige Cline, 9, who is training at the CC Dance Company, said: “My mum got me into ballet & tap when I was 3 years old & never stopped.

“When I’m dancing I feel happy all the time and I can really be myself.

“I’m really enjoying the EYB rehearsals.

“I love music and all types of dancing - it’s my life and I love it!”
