A TEENAGER from Eaton Socon has fulfilled his dream of setting up his own dance academy. Tom Langdale, 19, of Monarch Road, set up the Langdale Dance Academy in Eaton Socon six months ago and now has more than 50 members aged between four and 45. Tom, who studied a BTEC and national diploma in dance at De Montford University in Bedford, and was the UK's freetsyle dance champion last year, said: "It has always been my dream to set up my own dance academy ever since I was a youngster and I couldn't afford to go to dance classes. "I wanted to set up an academy to provide affordable classes so that everyone can attend." Tom is hoping to move into bigger premises in Foundry Lane, Eaton Socon, in September or October. He said: "More members are joining every day, which doesn't surprise me as there is so much talent in St Neots." Members of the Langdale Dance Academy displayed their talents at St Neots carnival celebrations on Saturday and are also preparing for a Christmas variety show, which will take place on December 22 at the Priory Centre. - To find out more phone 01480 394047.
