Barrow mum and daughter’s dream workout with Kimberly Wyatt from the Pussycat Dolls
Last updated at 16:46, Monday, 09 June 2014
A BARROW mother and daughter dance duo were head over heels when they won the chance to train with one of their idols.
Barrow Zumba instructor Sam Walton, 35, and her daughter Amber, 14, were drawn out of a hat in a national competition, which saw the pair work out with pop star Kimberly Wyatt from the Pussycat Dolls.
Mum Sam, who also works as a teaching assistant at George Hastwell School on Walney, entered a Facebook competition run by Maxitone – an international sports nutrition brand for which Kimberly is an ambassador – but never expected to hear back.
She said: “I entered the competition as my daughter dances at Deemon performance academy and would like a career in dance.
“Kimberly is one of her favourite dancers and I thought it would be a great opportunity for her to meet a professional and successful dancer. I entered not really thinking we would win but we were so happy when we found out we had.”
Sam and Amber travelled to The Loft Studios in London on May 13, where they were treated to an intimate workout alongside the American singer and her personal trainer, Glenn Ball.
They both enjoyed the experience and Chetwynde pupil Amber got some career advice from the high-profile star, who is a judge on Sky One talent show Got To Dance.
Sam said: “We were so excited waiting for her at the venue and recognised her as soon as she walked in.
“At the end she sat and chatted with us and answered any questions we had – she was really lovely, super friendly and down-to-earth.”
