A tiny dancer from Sheffield has been given a cash boost by a national housebuilder to take her talent to the next level.

Eight-year-old Seren Palfreyman, from Mosborough, received funding from Taylor Wimpey shortly after competing in the Step in Time dance competition.

The talented youngster finished first in her age category in addition to scoring the highest points in the entire classical ballet division.

Seren’s mother, Kerry, said: “From the age of just three, Seren decided she wanted a future in dance and has since dedicated her life to it.

“We’re thrilled with Taylor Wimpey’s support, which will allow Seren to invest in more regular training and new uniforms.”

Seren, who is highly skilled in ballet, modern and tap dance, was recently accepted into the prestigious Elmhurst Dancing School, which her mother describes as a huge milestone in her daughter’s dancing career.

Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, said: “We’re delighted to support a local superstar and hope our donation will make Seren’s dreams a reality.

“She’s such a talented young girl.”
