TEENAGER Louisa Harrison is hoping for some help to realise her dream of dancing on stage and screen.

The 17-year-old, of Edgefield, Weston, has landed a place at Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts on a one-year dance performance course.

But the course fee is £9,000 and Louisa and mum Rebecca are hoping someone will come forward to sponsor her and help make her dream a reality.

Louisa said: “I went for one audition and out of about 900 people I got a call-back and then a week or so ago I got a letter offering me a place.

“I screamed and cried. It is absolutely amazing.”

Louisa, who specialises in hip-hop, is currently studying for a BTEC diploma in performing arts at the Post-16 Centre at Spalding’s Gleed Girls’ Technology College.

In the past she has appeared on stage in Spalding as part of Polka Dot performances of Les Miserables, Oliver and Britannia High among others and is now involved with Backstage Academy in Long Sutton under the wing of teacher Helen Weekley.

She said: “Although I love hip-hop I also do all sorts of dance and my long-term dream is to appear on television and in music videos and then go on to teach dance.”

Mum Rebecca added: “As well as the course fee we will have to pay for living costs so we would really appreciate any sponsorship.”

Anyone who can help should call Louisa on 07852 404145 or Rebecca on 07515 740327.
