IF dancing at the Royal Albert Hall wasn't special enough, dancers from the Royston-based dance school The Academy will be entertaining none other than the Queen on Sunday.

The 30 dancers, aged between seven and 18, were invited to take part in Stars in the Round- a special dance show in front of the Queen and talent scouts who are looking for children to perform in West End shows.

Wayne Taylor, promotions manager, said: "This is an amazing chance for the children and they have been busy rehearsing.

"They were invited along after receiving a standing ovation at Disneyland Paris.

"All the children will be personally greeted by Bonnie Langford as she has asked to visit their dressing room to chat with the students after hearing so much about them.

"This is the biggest show they will have done and is a great achievement for them.
