Lauren Shepherd, 38, performed with Brian May in the musical We Will Rock You in 2008.

In 2015 she launched her own branch of babyballet in Central Bedfordshire, a dance academy for children aged between six months and six years.

Lauren has been dancing since the age of three, but an injury ended her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina.

The classes will be hosted at the Community Hall in Great Denham.

“I decided to start my own babyballet classes because I wanted to share my love of dance with others.

“There is nothing like this in the area and the brand really is amazing.”
