Year 7 student Alannah Griffin is going to dance in a variety show at famous London venue, Her Majesty’s Theatre. Alannah was part of local dance group, Starlight, that won a national championship in London and they have now been invited to appear with other troupes at Her Majesty’s, the long-running home of ‘Phantom of the Opera.’
Seven of Alannah’s friends and family will go along to see her perform at the event in February. She has been attending Starlight for a few months after first getting interested in street dance in her primary school and also taking part in pantomimes at the Royal and Derngate.
Alannah said: ‘There are about 24 in my dance group and we performed a street dance to ‘Walk This Way.’ As well as going to London we have just been invited to go to Italy for a European Championship. I really like performing but I am a bit nervous as it will be the biggest theatre I will have danced in!’
