THE dreams of Olivia Hall (11) and April Martin (16) - two of the Northwest’s top young dancers - have come true.

The two girls were selected at a highly competitive audition for the English Youth Ballet (EYB) and are appearing in Giselle at the RNCM this week.

Lowton high school pupil, Olivia of Leigh, attends the Kathleen Atherton Academy of Dance while April, of Atherton, attends Winstanley College and trains with Frances Bleasdale.
