A PROMISING young dancer has taken the first steps to seeing her name in lights as she prepares to take part in 40 shows at the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh.

Low port Primary Pupil, Eve Hanson (9), of Faucheldean, has been chosen to take part in this year’s King’s pantomime ‘‘Mother Goose’’, which stars Allan Stewart, Andy Gray and Grant Stott.

Eve, a member of The Edinburgh Dance Academy, was selected from a group of over 40 children and mum, Debbie, insists she cannot wait to get started. She said: “This is the first time that Eve has been involved in anything like this and she is really looking forward to it.

‘‘The rehearsals start in the middle of November and the last show is in January, so she knows it will be a lot of work. We are able to work it around school time though, so she won’t miss out that way.”

Eve is also a part of Central Scotland Ballet School so is used to a busy schedule. However, tiredness could become an issue for the group of 7-11 year olds involved.

“It is a busy schedule for the kids, but the fun of the event will help with that,” Debbie added.
