A DANCE school in Nailsea is celebrating after picking up a number of accolades at the Kingswood Dance Eisteddfod.

Talented performers from The Adele Stitch School of Dance won medals in nearly every genre of the competition, which attracts competitors from across the South West and Wales.

Darcey Winter, aged 13, picked up gold, silver and bronze medals as well as the Greek Trophy and the prestigious title and trophy for most promising dancer of the competition.

Darcey, who also trains with The Royal Ballet Associate Programme, will be popping up on ITV soon when she stars in a new ballet I-dent.
