Dancers jump for joy at college acceptance
FOUR talented dancers are turning their dreams into reality after gaining places within a prestigious national college.
The teenagers from Pat Yarborough Theatre Dance School have been training for many years, and could not be happier with their successes.
Eighteen-year-olds Michaela Webb, Rebecca Gray, Kirsty Boddy and Alicia Taylor-Reese are all attending the Doreen Bird College of Dance, Music and Theatre Performance in Sidcup.
Three will do a degree in dance and theatre performance, and Kirsty will do a one-year foundation course beforehand.

Kirsty, from Grimsby, said: "This is what the college gave me and I am very happy.
"It does mean I won't be doing my degree just yet, but I will still be gaining great experience and learning a lot.
"I have been with Pat for the past 14 years; dancing is all I know and I love everything about it.
"There is no better feeling than performing in front of people. I would love in the future to be doing West End shows and touring the country. That is my dream."
The girls worked hard to get a place within the college and fought off thousands of other hopefuls from across the country.
Michaela, of Cleethorpes, has been dancing since the age of three and has attended Pat's school for the past eight years.
"When I heard I had been accepted into the college I was so happy," she said.
"There are so many talented people who auditioned for a space, I had no idea if I was going to be good enough.
"I find it fascinating how the body can move in different ways to music, this is what I love about dancing.
"I would love to perform on a cruise ship and travel the world."
Rebecca claims she was really nervous when auditioning as she did not know what to expect.
She said: "To study for a degree in such a well known dance college is great.
"I have many ideas of what I would like to do in the future as a career and I think at some point I want to be a teacher.
"It would be amazing to be able to run my own dance studio.
"I am really excited about college, it is just the next step up the ladder for me."
