Milly takes it slowly to claim UK dance crown

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

SHE may only be five years old, but Milly Malone has al­ready danced her way to the top of her game.

Milly, who lives on Sut­ton Close with mum Kate Lash­ford, has been named the Bri­tish Un­der six Slow Cham­pion af­ter im­press­ing judges at the Black­pool Freestyle Cham­pi­onships.

Kate says she and Milly’s dad Kelvin Malone are over the moon with her achieve­ment.

She said: “We went with no ex­pec­ta­tions at all and she only went and won!

“We are thrilled. She was amaz­ing and we are very proud of her.

“It was a very long day but it was worth it to see her lit­tle face light up when we were told she’d won.”

Milly’s love of danc­ing grew af­ter her grandma Pat Potts took her to her first les­son at Ap­ple Dance Group, at St Barnabus Church, when she was two. Kate, who works as a quan­tity sur­veyor, added: “The danc­ing was just some­thing for her to do with my mum dur­ing the week and she loved it so we just car­ried on from there. There’s no pres­sure, she tried her best and she worked hard, we are very proud of her.”

Milly dances with her ‘Ap­ple Fam­ily’ twice a week on Thurs­days and Satur­days.
