Camilla meets a ballet dancer who will appear in a Disney documentary
The Queen Consort has wished “good luck” to a young dancer whose dreams of becoming a ballet star went viral and will now be made into a Disney documentary.
Camilla met Anthony Madu when she visited the ballet school, which offered him a scholarship after a 44-second video posted online in 2020 of him pirouetting in the rain was viewed more than 16 million times.
The 13-year-old, from Nigeria, is now in her second year at the Elmhurst Ballet School in Birmingham, which is celebrating its centenary and has the Queen Consort as patron.
Camilla visited the school to mark the milestone and meet the schoolboy, who has grown a few centimeters and now has more of an English accent since his story won the hearts of social media users.
When she asked Anthony if he had always loved dancing, he replied “Yes, since I was five years old.
Camilla replied: “It will get you, you can’t help it – good luck.”
Disney announced in September that they would make a documentary about the youngster, whose family lives on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital, Lagos. He had little formal training before arriving in Britain but showed great talent.
After Camilla’s visit, Anthony said of Elmhurst: “My dancing is going well, it’s really, really great and I’m really enjoying it.”
He said he is adjusting to life in the UK but is struggling a bit with the weather.
“It’s still pretty cold,” he said.
Speaking about his journey, he added: “I just hope that younger dancers from anywhere in the world… I just hope to inspire them to pursue their dreams and never give up.”
