Melissa a prima ballerina in our eyes and a great role model
We should be proud that a home grown world class talent like Melissa Hamilton has come back to Northern Ireland to inspire a new generation to follow in her footsteps.
Melissa is a star dancer with the Royal Ballet company in London and she wants young people here to realise that ballet can be a wonderfully rewarding career, as well as providing an enviable lifestyle. Young people need role models and Melissa is a wonderful example of how talent and hard work can help make dreams come true - even in the rarefied world of ballet. Now we need others to buy into her vision for youngsters here.
