A NEW ballet class for youngsters has started in the Bay.
The Little Ballerina Academy of Dance in Torquay started at St Martin's Church Hall, Barton, earlier this month.
Melody Bear Pre-School Ballet Class teaches young beginners. Grade classes are also available to older children if they wish to take examinations.
The school specialises in classical ballet and is taught by Wendy Sandercock, who also runs Newton Abbot-based Wendy Sandercock Academy of Dance, and the Teignmouth and Shaldon Academy in Teignmouth.
Former pupils have been accepted into schools such as the Royal Ballet School, Elmhurst School for Dance and the English National Ballet School.
Her daughter Alicia (pictured) is a prima ballerina and is a senior associate of the Royal Ballet School. For more information contact Wendy on 01803 324550.
