A TALENTED young dancer is polishing off his shoes and his moves ready to represent the north west at competition finals in Blackpool in April.

At the event at Wythenshawe forum, he placed first in Latin and second in Ballroom dancing for the second year running.
Jude, who trains at Jagers Dance in Oldham and also at the Sarah England School of Dance in Stalybridge, will now take on other regional winners at the final at Blackpool Winter Gardens in Spring.
And adding to his success, Jude recently competed in a UKA competition at Blackpool Winter Gardens, ranking first in the UK in both Latin and Ballroom dance.
