Harriet has been dancing since she was eight-years-old and says she never wants to give up dancing because it’s her passion.

“I’ve always loved to dance; it just comes naturally. Dancing gives you focus and confidence as well as fitness - I would recommend it to anyone - it’s great to have a passion for something in your life,” she said.

Harriet, who lives in Huddersfield, has been a student at the Halifax dance school for nine years and loves it so much she wants to become a dance teacher - to encourage youngsters to be passionate about dance and is learning teaching tips from dance teacher Zoe Cook.

Zoe said: “Harriet has always been a very hard working student who has won many accolades for her dancing whilst being a pupil at our school.

“We are thrilled she has qualified for the finals in this prestigious event, it’s very a big achievement gained through hard work and dedication.”
