Amber's digital story is about her interest in dancing and what she has achieved.
I started dancing when I was younger. In my first school we always had discos at the end of the year. I started dancing around the room when I was at my other school and went back to gymnastics, which helped me with my stamina. I didn’t start taking dancing seriously till I was 14. I started taking classes at Whitely Bay High School. I entered my first competition a year later; I came fourth in the special fling. In September I entered another competition and got fourth in the fling and third in the slow dance. I then got to the age where I had to go straight to premier because I turned 16. I am now entering my fourth competition this year and I will hopefully win a medal or a trophy. My dancing teacher is number one highland dancing champion in the UK and was also named the best teacher in the UK. I will be taking my pre-silver exam next year and I might be doing national exams as well. When I am older I will be taking teaching exams and maybe make my own dance school or I might take judging exams so I can judge people in competitions.
