Conservatives won two seats each and Labour took one.

A 16`year`old from East Yorkshire has beaten hundreds of hopefuls to

:05:55.:06:10.

earn a place at the famous English National Ballet School.

:06:11.:06:13.

Conor Walmsley has only been dancing for four years and his teacher

:06:14.:06:16.

in Hedon says it's a remarkable achievement.

:06:17.:06:18.

Confident, versatile, and able to push boundaries ` these are the

:06:19.:06:22.

things the English National Ballet School look for in a dancer ` and it

:06:23.:06:26.

seems Conor acquired them after just a short period of time.

:06:27.:06:35.

I have been dancing for four years and it is a massive part of my

:06:36.:06:44.

life. I do about 20 hours per week. It is definitely what I like to do

the most. The English National Ballet School

UK every year. His teacher says it a He has good natural ability with a

He joins a host of male dancers from this area who've achieved success.

Like Liam Mower from Hull who won a Laurence Olivier award for his role

:07:31.:07:33.

We are all happy for him. We would be for everyone because we are all

:07:34.:07:47.

close to each other. I was so proud of him because he is so determined

:07:48.:07:52.

to achieve what he wants. I was thrilled.

:07:53.:07:55.

But what is the 16`year`old most nervous about `

:07:56.:07:58.

I am excited to dance with other boys my age but I also want to learn

:07:59.:08:10.

some weight skills. Conor hopes that if he carries on

:08:11.:08:13.

learning the way he has been ` he'll be leaping into a lead role in no
