Well done to Victoria Young (3rd Year) who in Spring 2016 won a Ballet Scholarship to the Perm State Ballet Academy in Russia, starting in August 2016. Currently Victoria is with the Monica Loughman Elite Ballet company. Victoria and three of her other dancing colleagues from the Monica Loughman Elite Ballet company performed live on The Late Late Show on Friday, 20th May 2016.
Victoria started ballet when she was three years old and at present practices three hours per day, five days a week. To date Victoria has danced in 'The Nutcracker' in The Gate (2012), 'Romeo and Juliet' (2013), 'Les Sylphides' (2014) and 'Giselle' in the Convention Centre (2015), as well as a solo part as Princess Florina in 'Sleeping Beauty' (2016).
