Taking part in the Make a Wish Foundation, Maya’s wish came true when she met, spoke and practiced her high kicks with her idol Michael and the Lord of the Dance cast.

Maya also received a specially designed Irish dancing dress from Make a Wish foundation which her mum Linda says makes her, “the happiest little girl”.
