AMBER Clark is set to live every little girl’s dream and become a ballet dancer.

The Washington eight-year-old’s hard work has paid off, as she has won a music and dance award and secured a place at a dance school.

Amber will start at The Hammond School of Dance in Chester, which is one of four schools of excellence in the country for classical dance, in September.

The young dancer has been going to ballet classes at the Prima Academy of Performing Arts in Washington, where dance teacher Clare Robson recognised her talent.

Amber’s mum Lisa Clark said: “We are so proud of her. She has been doing it since she was three.

“She does other types of dance, but ballet is her passion.

“She is very excited to start the school as it her dream to become a ballet dancer.

“It will be hard for her to move so far away, but she gets to come home every three weeks and family are allowed to visit.

“She is used to travelling though as she has travelled quite a bit already to get more dancing experience, and she has appeared in the English Youth Ballet twice.”
