YOUNGSTERS from a locally-based dance group are hoping to put on a right royal performance when they showcase their talents in front of the Queen on Monday.
Living the Dream Performing Arts Company, run by former St Albans resident Zoe Jackson, has been invited to take to the stage at Westminster Abbey on Royal Commonwealth Day.
Students will join forces with dancers from The Brit School and The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts for the performance, which will celebrate music from around the world and mark the links shared between the 54 Commonwealth countries.
Prime Minister David Cameron is also due to be at the event, along with 200 VIPs and more than 1,000 schoolchildren.
Zoe, who founded Living the Dream at the age of 16, said: “We are tremendously honoured to have the opportunity to perform for the Queen. Our students are very excited and have been rehearsing for weeks to make sure our performance is perfect.
