Talented young dancers are asking people to back their bid to perform at the Royal Albert Hall.

Youngsters from Stenhouse School of Dance have made it through to the final three from across the UK and now want the public to give them top votes to take them to London in November.

Dance Proms is in its fourth year and features all types of dance from around the world. The final act is always picked by a public vote and this year the Falkirk dancers hope it will be them flying the flag for Scotland.

They are up against teams from Essex and London.

Stenhouse’s team, Tartantastic, is made up of 10 dancers aged nine to 14 years, and hope to perform their piece ‘Get Up’.

Principal Irene Langlands said: “We’re delighted to have made the shortlist with this new routine and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we get enough votes to take us to the Royal Albert Hall.”

Teacher Lisa Lake said: “The girls are really excited and thrilled as they have been working extremely hard to get their routine as tight as they can. They are determined to bring their Tartantastic troupe to the Royal Albert Hall and the prospect of selection will make them ‘Get Up’ even more!”

Dance Proms patron Darcey Bussell said: “It’s so important that young talent has a chance to see what other talented people are doing at this national event.

“I know from my own experience how important it is to see what your peers are up to while you’re training. For a student, performing at the Royal Albert Hall is out of this world. They learn so much and it will affect them for the rest of their lives.”
