A talented dancer from Bearsden has landed a role in the Pavilion Theatre’s Christmas panto this year.

Ellie Wilson (11), who is a pupil at Boclair Academy, has been a pupil at Robert Hamilton’s Dancepoint Musical Theatre School Glasgow school of dance for the past six years.

She will be one of only five children appearing in the show which stars Johnny Mac and panto legend Dean Park as well as River City favourites Stephen Purdon, Gary Lamont and Leah MacRae and stars from the Real Hoosewives - Nicola Park, Michele Gallagher and Tyler Collins.

Ellie, who does all types of dance including ballet, commercial and jazz, is very excited about appearing in this panto which has been described as a fun filled cross between ‘Home Alone’, ‘Elf’, and ‘Santa Claus: The Movie’.

Ellie went to New York with Robert Hamilton last year to train at a dance centre in Broadway and next July she will be going to Italy to perform in a dance festival.
