A WESTON teenager has been given a full scholarship at one of the best performing arts school in the country.

Cameron Beames, aged 16, went to an audition for a chance to study at the CPA college in Essex earlier this year.

On the day he had to go through three rounds of singing, dancing and acting in front of teachers from the school.

The college was the birthplace of pop group The Saturdays and also taught recent British chart topper Jessie J.

Cameron has wanted to be a professional dancer since he began aged nine and has dreams of dancing in London’s West End.

He said: “I would like to do as much as I possibly can.

“It was my dream as a dancer to be in the West End and I would like to dance in the background of music videos.

“It is a three year course doing musical theatre and it includes everything from classical ballet to contemporary dance.

“I am very, very excited but it is scary leaving home at a early age but it is got to be done.”

Cameron has been dancing at Tina Counsell School of Dance in Weston since he was nine-years-old.

Tina said: “It is very good to get into that college.

“He has worked so hard he deserves everything, he wants to make it his profession and this is a step in the right direction to do that really.”
