A Melbourn Village College student has just performed in front of her biggest audience yet after landing a place at Move It at the Excel in London.

Ella was selected to dance on opening day of the three-day spectacular after successfully auditioning for a place in Ryan Jenkins ID Company, which involves travelling to Covent Garden on a weekly basis.

The appearance was the latest – and greatest – achievement so far for Ella.

Last year she and two friends from her other dance school – Stage Right in Royston – also auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent. They were thrilled to get through two rounds and have been told to audition again for the next series.

Ella, who started dancing aged six and now trains five times a week in a range of dance styles, has also twice qualified for the All England National Dance Finals in London.
