An up-and-coming dancer is calling on local businesses to help her further her education and realise her dream of a career in the West End.
Danielle Sheehan has dreamt of being a professional dancer from the time she enrolled in a dance school at Wortwell Village Hall at the age of four.
The 19-year-old, from Starston, who has appeared in a host of musical productions in Norfolk over the last few years, has received letters of acceptance from eight professional dance colleges in London.
However, the former Archbishop Sancroft High School pupil, who completed a national diploma in performing arts at City College Norwich with distinction last year, has been unable to take up a place because of the �11,000 a year fees.

'My parents have been brilliant at taking me to auditions over the years and are upset that they do not have the money to send me,' she said.
Miss Sheehan, who has been unable to apply for a student loan because her course is a professional national diploma, hopes to start at a dance college in September.
'I would love to be a West End performer or work on a cruise ship. The competition is so intense and without the training I would not stand a chance against people who have had three years intensive training and will have better fitness and technique,' she said.
