The Elite Academy stars heading for the Dance World Cup in Spain

A team of Lichfield dancers are heading to Spain to compete on the world stage.

The group of six from Elite Academy will be representing England in classical ballet and modern jazz at the Dance World Cup.

Lillie Plume, Isabella Prince, Annabelle Handley, Beth Dobson, Fabrizio Scattone and Valentine Scattone will head off for the competition on Thursday.

Donna Wilcox, from Elite Dance Academy, said:

“They have all worked extremely hard and so have their parents to get them to Spain with so many hurdles of plane strikes, tests, passport queues.

“We wish them all the best and the event will be live broadcast around the world too where we will all be tuning in at Elite studios to watch.”

The young dancers will then return at the start of July to take part in the academy’s first show since before the pandemic.
