The event run by the Rotary Club of Belvoir took place at The Grange Hall, Radcliffe-on-Trent and featured 18 talented acts of all ages competing for a £300 cash prize for first place.

Yolanda Offodile, Fly Dance team spokesperson said: “Dancing with Fly Dance is like being part of one big family. “Everyone is so enthusiastic about dance and our tutors, Jade Yeow and Catherine Webb, push us to make it all happen.

“The tutors outline the loose choreography and the major moves but we polish the act and chose our clothes.”

Among the Melton and Vale acts who reached the final, Emily Brown (20), came third and received a cash prize of £100. She gave a controlled, confident and compelling singing performance.

Other notable entrants included singer David Newton of Asfordby, performer Ellie Hughes of Stathern and Neon Glee from Brooksby Melton College.

Rotary Club of Belvoir club president Mary Bridge-Collyns thanked both Tesco at Radcliffe and Wetherspoon in Bingham for their invaluable sponsorship of the event.

Impressed by the number of talented people entering the competition she stated how she couldn’t wait for the 7th Vale’s Got Talent in 2016.
