Charlotte-Jane Sherwin, Holly-Louise O’Brien, both five and Lilly-Rae Ashford, six, picked up the prizes at the East London Performing Arts Festival held in Hornchurch during the last two weekends in May.

The talented girls came top in various categories including ‘Most promising’ and ‘Tiny Tot’.

They train three times a week at Born 2 Perform Stage School, in Oxlow Lane, Dagenham, and have taken part in a variety of competitions and shows.

Holly-Louise’s mum Nicola Smith said: “The girls have been dancing since they were two and three and really love it. They did so well at the competition - we’re really proud of them.”
