YOUNG Darfield dancer Isla Fisher has developed an impressive talent that is now gaining national attention.
Isla, now ten, has been dancing since she was just 18 months old and has now earned the first place award for the under-12s classical sequence category at this year’s Classique de Danse Awards, which sees children and adults from across Britain awarded for their dancing talents.
The show was last Saturday in Blackpool, with awards presented by Strictly Come Dancing’s own Aljaz Skorjanec.
Isla’s mum, Sarah Fisher said: “She’s done amazing I was overwhelmed when she received the nomination because she’s competing with people from coast to coast.
“Then when she got first place I lost it me and her dad James are so proud of what she has achieved, she works so hard and she truly shines when she is on the dancefloor.
“We end up going all over the place with Isla, she’s always getting nominated for and winning something.
“But she’s so quiet in school you’d never know how she gets out and performs like she does.”
For the last nine years Isla has been training with local dancing instructor Karen Byron at her school in Thurnscoe.
Karen added: “She’s a stunning little dancer.
“She started dancing at 18 months old and has kept at it.
“I’m very proud it’s amazing to see after she’s been with me all these years.”
