FRANCESCA Doyle is already a dancing queen - at the age of six.

Francesca, of Normanby, near Middlesbrough, who is a pupil at Teesside Preparatory School, Eaglescliffe, wowed the judges with her disco dancing at the East of England competition and won two cups.

Francesca and her partner won the under-eight beginner couple class, and Francesca also won the under-eight starter of 2005.

Form teacher Carol Lara said: "We're very proud of her wonderful achievement, particulary as she was competing against older and more experienced dancers."
