Woman with Down’s Syndrome first in UK to win professional dance tuition place
A 20-year-old woman from Nottingham has become the first person in the UK with Down’s Syndrome to gain a place on a scheme for talented young dancers.
Beth Gardiner from Wollaton auditioned for a spot on the Centre for Advanced Training, a programme in which amateur dancers can get professional tuition to further their careers.
Beth says she absolutely loves contemporary dancing and her dream is to perform in the West End.
Her parents Mike and Judy have spoken of their immense pride in her achievements – last month, she was honoured in the Youth Creative Awards, which celebrate up and coming talent in the arts in Nottingham.
