DANCER Milan Cacacie is busy preparing to really move it at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End.

Milan, from Yate, was selected to perform at the show on June 3 after getting through her freestyle dance heat and winning the final at the Move It Dance Festival in London, in March.

The 12-year-old, a pupil in Year 7 at Yate International Academy, has been dancing since she was two years old and has been coached by her mother, Erin, since she was five.

To coincide with her daughter’s dance show success, Mrs Cacacie is opening a new dance school in Yate with her business partner Marta Nuevo Draper, who was once a dance student of hers. This school will offer classes on dance, drama and singing as well as belly dancing, ballet, hip-hop, keyboard and guitar lessons.

"We’re in the middle of painting it at the moment," said Mrs Cacacie. "This is the only stage school like this in the area and the only one that doesn’t cost hundreds of pounds," she explained. Our motto is ‘Quality Teaching at Affordable Prices’."

Her daughter’s achievements will take priority once the school is open, with the West End theatre show looming ever closer.

Said Mrs Cacacie: "We’re going to be starting Milan’s choreography as soon as it is open."
