A Marlow schoolgirl is celebrating after being picked to star in a rock video.
Holly Lidgate, 16, who attends Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School, was chosen from a group of young dancers from the Susan Handy School of Dance to take centre stage in alternative rock band Greyhaven UK’s latest single Breathe.
The aspiring dancer from Bourne End has been a student at the Slough-based dance school since she was two-years-old and says she wants to pursue a career in dance after her A-Levels.
Speaking about when she found out she had been picked, Holly said: “I was so excited because it was an amazing opportunity and I’d never done anything like it before.
“It was very different for me because I’m usually dancing in a hall, never mind in front of all the lights and cameras.
“The band and film crew were so lovely and made me relax and really enjoy the whole experience
“It was very surreal seeing myself on the screen for the first time.
“It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do and it was a really proud moment for me.”
Mum Jane spoke of her pride for her daughter, saying it was “lovely to see all of her effort and dedication used in something that meant something”.
She said: “I am very, very proud of her. It was such a fantastic experience.”
