An eight-year-old from Soham has been crowned Britain’s best disco freestyle dancer.

Halle Ogilvie, who goes to Weatheralls Primary School, claimed her first win at the Imperial Society for Teachers of Dance (ISTD) grand finals in Guildford over the weekend.

She saw off competition from over 60 other entrants to wow judges in the under 10 disco freestyle solo event.

Halle’s impressive achievement is the culmination of months of training at the Soham branch of the Gail Henry School of Dance, where she has been dancing since she was just three years old.

Halle’s mum, Amy, said: “It’s the third time she has competed at the grand final so it’s definitely third time lucky!
