A BRADWELL teenager is one of the stars of a Sky TV reality show as it follows his work in London and at the famous Pineapple Dance Studios.

A former pupil of The Dancers School in Gorleston, Lewis Smith, 19, graduated from Performers College in Corringham with a National Diploma in musical theatre and dance theatre.

While a student at the college, Lewis performed at corporate events in London and in The Wonderful World of Oz pantomime in 2007, for which he became assistant choreographer in 2008.

This year he has been modelling for fashion companies, performed at the MTV Amsterdam Festival in front of 20,000 people as part of a band, and is set to do another panto.

But despite his busy schedule, he has found time to return to Gorleston and work on a dance piece for some of the girls he used to dance with at The Dancers School.

Students auditioned for two numbers for their forthcoming show - including Lewis' piece choreographed to the Britney Spears track Hot as Ice.

Principal Jayne King said: “It's been great having Lewis back working with us. I'm very proud of what he has achieved in the three years since he went to college, and it's really good for the students here to see what a difference three years of full-time vocational training can make.”

Written in Dance will be performed at the Britannia Pier Theatre on October 16 and 17 at 7pm - proceeds to Children with Leukaemia.
