Beliebers dance with Justin
Burnley definitely HAS got talent as four dancers from the same school were chosen from thousands of hopefuls to dance with megastar Justin Bieber on his Purpose world tour.
The quartet, who are Tegan Williams, Isabel Riley, Nadine Bergundo and Molly McHugh, are still coming back down to earth after being given the once in a lifetime chance to appear on stage with Justin after sending in audition videos, along with around 200,000 other hopefuls.
Only four dancers were chosen for the choreographed routine at each UK venue and the fab four all dance at Energize under the expert eye of instructor Lorna Jackson-Digger.
The girls danced their way through a three minute routine to the song Children. The first to dance with the star was Tegan (12) who is a pupil at Unity College.
She was chosen for the Glasgow leg of the tour in October and was cheered on by her mum, Billie Jo Fallows and dad Gareth Williams.
In an incredible coincidence Tegan’s dance partner, Isabel Riley, was chosen to dance with Justin at the O2 Arena in London. At only 10, Isabel was one of the youngest dancers to be chosen.
A pupil at Rosewood Primary School she was watched by her thrilled mum, Mary Disley. Isabel was on stage last Monday night and Natalie and Molly shared the limelight at the same venue on the following night.
A Year 9 student at Blessed Trinity RC College, Nadine started dancing at nine. She lives with her parents, Noel and Hilda, who said their daughter’s success made her the pride of family and friends both in England and the Philippines. Molly (12) is a pupil at St Bede’s RC High School in Blackburn where she lives.
Delighted Lorna said: "I am bursting with pride that four of my dancers were chosen to dance with one of the most famous musicians in the world.
“They will have memories to treasure and last a lifetime!"
