A TEENAGE ballet dancer has had more success.
James Buckley, 13, is now competing against dancers much older than himself.
Last weekend James won a silver medal at the North and West Yorkshire Senior Ballet Championships.
He also came away with no fewer than seven trophies including three for one dance.
James, of Greetland, attends the Strickland Cook Theatre School in Dundas Street, Huddersfield.
Proud mum Vanessa said: “James is now competing against 18-year-olds and is holding his own nicely.”
In his last exams James was nominated twice to dance at the IDTA Scholarship awards and has just won a scholarship to the Phil Winston Theatre works summer school.
James, who has performed since he was three, became a target of school bullies because of his love of dancing.
But he beat the bullies and helped develop an anti-bullying campaign used in Halifax schools.
