A TALENTED teenager is entertaining tens of thousands of festival-goers up and down the country in a series of national dancing events.

Holly Cooper-Keeble is showcasing her dance moves as a member of West End Kids - an elite musical theatre song and dance troupe.

The teenager, who studies at Harwich and Dovercourt High School, has been touring the country with the 20-strong troupe to massive crowds since May.

So far, Holly and the troupe have performed at the Chelsea Flower Show, Geronimo North Festival, Trafford Centre, RunFestRun and West End Live.

The group will soon be at London Pride, British Summertime Festival, Nickelodeon Centre and Camp Bestival.

Holly, 16, of Douglas Road, Dovercourt, said: “I am most looking forward to performing at the British Summertime Festival in Hyde Park.

“British Summertime Festival is a music festival held over two weekends, and it is estimated that more than 450,000 people attended the event last year.

“I can’t wait to perform with my best friends on the same stage that will this year be headlined by Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand and Stevie Wonder.

“It feels so surreal.”

West End Kids is a prestigious musical theatre song and dance troupe based in central London.

The company provides a unique programme of on the job training combining intensive weekend rehearsals with a busy performance schedule.

Martin Williams, founder and artistic director of West End Kids, said: “Now in our 18th year, we are heading into our busiest summer ever.

“West End Live was a huge highlight and we’re delighted to be returning to perform at the event in Trafalgar Square for our 13th year running.

“Add London Pride, Camp Bestival and British Summertime Festival to the mix and the young singers and dancers of West End Kids will get to perform for tens of thousands of people over the next few months, which is hugely exciting and a priceless experience for all of them.”
