Casterton College pupil through to final of Award City’s virtual dance competition
A 14-year-old dancer has put her skills to the test in a virtual competition.
Lillyrose Geeves, from Stamford, entered Award City’s virtual dance competition in January and has bagged a place in the final.
Lillyrose, a pupil at Casterton College, said: “I was a bit astonished really as I didn’t expect it at all.
“I just did it for fun as it’s been a bit boring in lockdown.”
Each month, dancers are given a set of choreography to interpret and 10 people are selected - five by the judges and five by public vote - for the final.
Out of the 110 finalists, the top 10 people in the public vote will have the chance to dance with former Britain’s Got Talent winners, Diversity.
Lillyrose, a pupil at LDC Dance in Bourne, said: “Winning would open lots of doors for me.
“I would like to open my own dance school in the future.
“I’ve been dancing since I was three and it would be my greatest achievement.”
Lillyrose with help from her dad, George, used daily walks to film the dance, which she described as ‘fun, upbeat and urban’.
Lillyrose has encouraged other young dancers to get involved in the competition, which is running each month up until November.
She said: “Just do it for fun. If you are scared to do it just go for it as everyone who enters gets a medal and something out of it.”
