HOpe Swan has had a passion for singing and dancing ever since she was a little girl.
That has already led the South Shields teenager to success, and now she is hoping to add to her triumphs by winning the Best of South Tyneside’s prize for young performer of the year.
She is in the running for our crown, thanks her family nominating her.
In their nomination, they say: “We would like to take this opportunity to let Hope know how immensely proud we are of her.
“She is a tremendously talented but grounded young lady who gives her all to everything she does.”
Hope is a student at the JnK School of Dance in South Shields, and she has just achieved honours with distinction for her fifth gold bar in freestyle dancing.

She is also part of a dance troupe which has made it to the final of the Bring It On UK competition.
The 15-year-old is a drama student too at Starset Theatre in East Boldon, as well as being a Year 11 student at Harton Technology College in South Shields.
Her family added: “Hope is a very academic student and, as a future career path, wishes to study medicine, but her life’s passion is performing.”
Hope will be one of a number of outstanding talents in the Young Performer finals.
