Clitheroe dancer Aimee Williamson has been announced as one of the winners of the prestigious BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellowship Scheme.

The fund has awarded £130,000 to 13 dance organisations across the UK and plays host to a bespoke placement service for emerging dance talent, choreographers and producers.

Aimee will join Ballet Cymru from March to September next year, during which time she will gain invaluable experience and obtain life-changing skills, from assisting in workshops for the outreach programme to shadowing other dancers in rehearsals and taking part in touring productions for the Cultural Olympiad.

The judges commented: “Aimee’s focused work ethic and joy of moving demonstrates her commitment to dance and her hard-working nature should ensure a very successful placement.”
