A YOUNG local dance star has struck gold at the Sussex Festival of Dance and Song in the UK.
Thirteen-year-old Amy Avellano, from Transitions Dance Academy and also a member of the Gibraltar National Team, took the gold medal at the festival where she participated in the senior section of the ‘Sussex Dancer of the Year’.
She performed two dance routines that were especially choreographed by Gillaine Alman.
Director of MO Productions Seamus Byrne said: “Amy has once again been a great ambassador for Gibraltar and we are delighted with her performances and the result. Her participation at this event has been well received by the festival organisers and international choreographers.
“It has been an extraordinary educational experience and we look forward to furthering our relationship with the Sussex Festival.”
