Olivia Cheung, who attends Sir John Leman High School, in Beccles, will be appearing in the English Youth Ballet's 'Cinderella in Hollywood' at Norwich Theatre Royal on May 25 and 26.

Olivia said: 'I first started dancing when I was 4 years old. I started because I saw a ballet dancer on TV who looked really good and it inspired me.

'I am looking forward to dancing with English Youth Ballet to get all the experience.

'It's really good to get out on stage and show your face – its so nice.'
