TWO Elsecar sisters are dancing for joy after successfully auditioning for an elite dance programme.

Eadie Schofield, aged 12, and her eight-year-old sister, Ivy, attend the DQ Dance Academy in Barnsley and were invited to audition at Yorkshire Elite Associates in Bradford which offers an exclusive dance programme for young dancers.

DQ Dance Academy owner Yasmin Holland, 24, said: “I am super proud of the girls - they are both very good dancers and are on my competition team.

“They worked incredibly hard and, although I was nervous for them, they smashed it."
