TALENTED performers from Bolton are entertaining crowds internationally.

Five girls from Taylor's Theatre Academy took to the famous stage at Benidorm Palace to perform their Around the World routine.

The academy's owner Stacey Taylor said: "We are beyond proud of their dedication and hard work. Their performance was breathtaking.

"We already can't wait to take part in our next show at the palace!"

The girls, Isabella Taylor-Whitehead, Sophie-Leigh Jones-Wills, Jasmine Philpott, Ella-Rose Fletcher and Tia-Lilly Southern, had 14 minutes of fame on stage as they sang, danced and acted to a fun medley including Africa by Shakira, Three Little Birds by Bob Marley, We Found Love by Rhianna and Katy Perry's California Girls.

Miss Taylor explained their performance was set up as a game show where the girls got to travel the world through their dancing and singing.

Taylor's Theatre Academy is based in Ainsworth Lane and was set up by Miss Taylor in 2018, when she returned to her home town of Bolton afters a career as a professional dancer aboard cruise ships and in Italy.

Together with her sister Julie Ashton, she offers singing, dancing and acting lessons to children aged three to 17.

Just a year after Taylor's opened they had had so much success that they moved to bigger premises in their current location in a former Co-operative food store which has been completely refurbished.

Miss Taylor's budding entertainers have been lucky enough to perform at Blackpool Opera House, Bolton Albert Halls and Middleton Arena.

The next international stop for them after Benidorm Palace will be Disneyland Paris in 2020.

Taylor's Theatre Academy currently has around 70 pupils but is always looking for more. On Sunday, June 2 they will hold an open day at their home in Ainsworth Lane with performances between 1pm and 4pm.

Those who sign up will get a full week of lessons to try for free.
