FELIXSTOWE: A six-year-old girl has proved that she was born for the stage after winning her first dance competition.

Talented little dancer Maisey Ostler performed in front of hundreds of people at the competition, which took place on February 6 in Norfolk. She was awarded first prize for the six years and under category.

Maisey, who is a student at the Antonia Cobbin School of Dance, was one of four children to enter the category and was selected for her modern solo performance of My Boy Lollipop - which was originally sung by Barbie Gaye in 1956, then made famous by Millie Small in 1964.

Maisey, who attends Trimley St Mary Primary School, told The Evening Star that she had lots of fun at her first ever competition.

“She learnt it in just three weeks, she loves dancing and she did amazingly well, she really was born for the stage.
