A young dancer from Cleckheaton has jetted her way to Spain to teach adults with learning disabilities.

Tiah Parsan, 16, has only just started college, but has used her skills to teach people how to dance as part of a special voluntary scheme.

Tiah, of Prospect Street, Cleckheaton, took part in the Esteem project in Mallorca which helps teach adults with learning disabilities new skills.

Tiah dances at the Suga Brown Dance Academy in Huddersfield, whose instructors suggested earlier this year that she should take part in the project.

She said: “It was such a fun and challenging experience for me and I really enjoyed it and I’d like to thank everyone who helped to organise it.

“There were about 15 adults in each class that I taught during the mornings, so it was challenging, but I loved every minute of it.”

Tiah is currently studying a level three diploma in dance, and wants to continue to teach in the future.

She added: “This is definitely something I want to continue to do.

“When I turn 18, I will be able to go out and teach for a bit longer, and that is something I want to do, it was very rewarding.”

The Esteem project is a charity that helps young people get into working on vocational and education projects in the UK and Europe .
