HOLLYWOOD actor and dancer Adam Garcia made a flying visit to Barnsley yesterday to visit one local woman's new dance company.

Adam - who appeared in Coyote Ugly and is a judge on Sky 1 Show Got To Dance - met Katie Pearson at The Civic to hear about the work she is doing with her new venture, Northern Tap Company.

Another guest of honour was respected choreographer Christopher Horsey who has a popular tap school in Australia, choreographed for Adam Garcia and also for Katie's company's debut performce Soundz Extraordinary which will debut at the Civic on Saturday.

Katie says she's proud to represent Barnsley with her tap company and hopes that commissions will come from across the UK.
