A teenager has beat off competition from more than 1,000 dancers to win a place in a dance show.

Emily Galvin, from Epping, will perform in Matthew Bourne's Romeo and Juliet, which premieres next year.

The 19 year-old graduated from the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts this summer and will visit 13 venues with the New Adventures company.

She will also appear in a four-week stint at Sadler's Wells from August 7 to 31.

Miss Galvin has previously performed in the National Youth Ballet's 30th Anniversary Gala at Sadler's Wells and at the Crescent Theatre in Birmingham in 2017.
