North Lincolnshire students cheerleading way to Albert Hall spectacular
Talented students from a North Lincolnshire dance centre have been chosen to take part in a spectacular show at the Royal Albert Hall this autumn.
The 16 dancers from the Rushby Dance and Fitness Centre in Barton-Upon-Humber, who are aged between 13 and 19, will join 25 other dance acts and celebrity dancers on stage at the second Dance Proms at the Royal Albert Hall on November 4.
Star guests will include Strictly Come Dancing's Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova.
Dance Proms was launched last year to find the UK and Ireland's most talented dance students in all dance genres – from ballet to ballroom, salsa to street dance and jive to jazz dance – and offer them a unique opportunity to perform on stage at one of the world's best concert venues.

The dancers, all of whom are from North Lincolnshire, are Amy Savidge, Bethany Rushby, Charlotte Beadle, Charlotte Callaway, Charlotte Robinson, Emileigh-Joe Dixon, Emily Beadle, Emily Pearson, Katie Peck, Louise Bell, Lucy Wainwright, Mary Hanley, Megan Brand, Mollie Plaskitt, Rebecca Hewitt and Rosie Middleton.
They will perform a cheerleading piece, combining classic cheer dance with intricate pattern changes, to a piece of mixed music.
School principal and choreographer Christine Rushby said: "We are all delighted for our piece to have been accepted. We believe it will be an absolutely glorious experience for the team to perform at the Royal Albert Hall.
"We think it will be character building and a momentous occasion to join together with others to celebrate our love of dance."
Megan Brand, 16, said: "I'm so excited that the girls and I were chosen for Dance Proms this year. It's going to be a wonderful experience and is such a great opportunity to dance in an iconic venue."
The Rushby Dance and Fitness centre is home to five cheer teams and has achieved more than 100 Cheerdance team and solo wins over the past eight years.
Darcey Bussell, president of the Royal Academy of Dance and patron of Dance Proms, said: "Dance Proms provides young dancers from all genres with the opportunity to dance in a truly inspirational setting and I am honoured to be a patron of the project.
"It is important that young dancers have as many opportunities as possible to experience performing in productions, so that they learn how to perfect their beautiful art form."
