Dancing prodigy returns from Moscow

Tala Lee-Turton

DANCING prodigy Tala Lee-Turton is home for the summer but is certainly not on anything resembling a holiday.

Tala spends most of the year at the world-famous Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow where she is halfway through her four year course.

Tala became the first Yorkshire dancer and only the ninth from Britain to be accepted into the academy in its 241-year history.

Now home until the end of August, Tala, 18, of Barnsley Road, Wombwell, is working on a schedule to ensure she doesn't lose any of her stamina or flexibility.
