March girl, 10, lands dance role in Cinderella pantomime at Cresset in Peterborough

ASPIRING young dancer Libby Copeman has landed a role in a Peterborough pantomime after impressing choreographers.

Libby, 10, from March, a pupil at Westwood Junior School, will be a dancer in the Cinderella pantomime which runs at the Cresset from December 13-30.

She will perform alongside former EastEnders actress Cathy Murphy, who will be The Fairy Godmother, and Emmerdale actor Matt Milburn who will be Prince Charming.

Libby danced with Lisa Dickinson’s Dance Mania from the age of three and was a member of Sarah’s Street Style Dance’s elite team for a year before joining the Saldance group in Peterborough.

Mum Sadie Copeman said: “She auditioned last month - a choreographer performed a dance and she had to copy it. We soon had a call to say she had made one of the two dance teams.

“We are all really pleased. Myself, dad Chris and her brother Harry (aged six) are looking forward to watching her perform.”
