Have your say

A DONCASTER schoolgirl has danced her way to a place in a prestigious performing arts competition taking place in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, next month.

Isabelle Monk, aged 14, of Lyndale Avenue, Edenthorpe, was chosen by the adjudicator as the most outstanding dancer at Scunthorpe Musical Festival, so will perform a modern dance at the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Festivals Championships on September 24.

The 14-year-old attends Hungerhill School and has been dancing since she was one, competing in many festivals since she was three. For the past four years she has been a pupil at the Riley School of Dance and Performing Arts.

She is one of 40 young performers competing at Ilkley.
