Eight-year-old Elise Watt, of Renishaw, has beaten 250 other children to win the role of Snowflake in the English Youth Ballet production of The Nutcracker at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal next month.

Mum Sara said: “We’re staggered at how well she has done, Elise has danced from the age of three but in the last year has really found her love for ballet.

“She has just completed two days of rehearsals and their is no element of being tired, she’s just very excited.”
