A TEENAGE girl will be holding a special dance event next week to help fund her dream of going to a specialist dance college.

Jessica Simmons, 17, has been accepted into two of the best dance colleges in the UK, but with hefty fees of £14,000 a year she cannot currently afford to accept the offers.

The former Holmer Green Senior School student will now be holding a special evening to hopefully receive funds and a potential sponsor.

She said: “I was amazingly happy when I found out I got in, but at the moment because of the cost I cannot go, which is very upsetting. I am hoping this event will hope me raise funds and possibly find a sponsor.”

A former dancer in Peter Pan at the Wycombe Swan, Jessica will be wowing the crowds with her moves on the night.

The event will be held in the Beacon Sports Centre on Sunday, April 27 at 7pm.

Tickets will cost £10 for an adult and £7.50 for Under 16s.
