TWO starlets have been praised for some fantastic achievements in the dancing world.
A bright future beckons for Molly Scott and Nicole McMorris who are both nine and both train at the Nadine’s Academy of Dance, which is based at the Longhill Industrial Estate, in Hartlepool.
Molly won the recent Cleveland Infant Song and Dance Championships which were held at Redcar.
Dance teacher Nadine Kennedy said: “Molly has been in lots of championship finals but finally won when she did her new song and dance.
“She plays the part of Nala from the Lion King and sings Shadowland. We were all over the moon when she won.”
More success may be on the way for Molly.
Nadine explained: “We are all keeping everything crossed for her because she will compete in December in the regional final of Open Mic UK.
“Molly has an amazing voice and is so talented. I am sure she will be appearing in the West End one day. She makes me very proud.”
Nicole is a relative newcomer to the song and dance scene.
Nadine said: “She has only been performing for a year.”
But she added: “She has reached the final of every song and dance championship she has entered, but finally went on to win her first title.”
The crown she lifted was the North of England Infant Tap Championship and Nadine said: “It was the first time she had entered a tap championship.
“Everyone was thrilled and the academy also got the runner-up spot as well as the sixth place in the final.
A week later, Nicole went to the Cleveland Song and Dance Championships and was runner-up next to her academy friend Molly.
Nadine said: “Nicole trains at the academy four times a week and always gives 110 per cent. She is a pleasure to teach and has a very bright future ahead of her.”
