Second Burnley dance sensation chosen to strut her stuff with pop megastar Justin Bieber
Burnley definitely has got talent as a second dancer from the town has been chosen to dance on stage with pop megastar Justin Bieber.
And not only is 10-year-old Isabel Riley one of the youngest to be chosen, she is the dance partner of Tegan Williams who danced with her idol during the Glasgow leg of his world tour in October.
Rosewood Primary School pupil Isabel is one of four children chosen to dance with Justin at the O2 Arena in London on Monday. Her audition video was among the 200,0000 sent in by young hopefuls.
Only four dancers were chosen to dance on stage with Justin at each venue so Burnley must be at the forefront in the entire UK when it comes to dance talent.
Isabel started dancing when she was just 18-months-old and is a student at Energize dance studio in Burnley.
Thrilled mum, Mary Disley, who will be watching Isabel on stage said: “Isabel is a shy child but she comes alive on stage. She cried with happiness when she was chosen."
Isabel was due to send an audition tape at the same time as Tegan but she was poorly at the time so her mum never got the chance to do it.
Mary said: "Isabel was so happy for Tegan when she was chosen, they are great friends and dance well together.
"When we got round to sending Isabel's tape off we never imagined she would be chosen."
Isabel dances at Energize four times a week and she also studies ballet. She has won a host of awards and trophies for her dancing and her and Tegan came sixth in the world championships in August.
