BUDDING Billy Elliots can learnt the art of ballet in Cradley Heath as dance classes have been hailed a success.

Ballet and tap dance classes on Saturday afternoons at Haden Hill Leisure Centre are attracting twinkle-toed children every week.

The classes are taught by local established dance school Sonia Webb Academy of Dance and Drama.

Mrs Webb said: "Classes have been running at Haden Hill Leisure Centre since last September and I am really pleased with how well the children are doing.

"My aim is to deliver the correct ballet and tap technique in a way that the children can absorb but still enjoy.

"Our classes are open to all children, whether they want to learn to dance for fun or as a training structure towards their future to get into dance college."

Children, aged from 2-14, can enrol onto a block of 12 lessons on Saturday, February 9.
