A DANCE school has realised its ambitions by moving into a new purpose build studio.

Ambition Academy has moved into the Silk Mill, in Gomersal, after previously using Scholes Parish Hall for its classes on Saturdays and nights during the week.

However, the new studio has already made a big impression on the school’s dance pupils.

Principal Hannah Baldock said she was delighted with the new facilities.

“It’s fantastic, there is a cafe downstairs for the parents and the children have a purpose built studio with mirrors, bars and wooden floors,” she said.

“One of my young pupils came in and said it was like something from Angelina Ballerina – like something from a film.”

The school still meets on Wednesdays at Scholes First School, but runs 10 classes at the mill every Saturday, including tap, ballet, disco dance and musical theatre.
