The Washington dance academy where two sisters who died in a car crash near Grimsby last week trained has paid tribute to "amazing dancers with huge hearts."
Carley and Beth Cockburn from Chester-le-Street died after the car they were in collided with a lorry on the A18 close to Grimsby.
The family had been travelling to a dance competition in Skegness.
Trish n' Trina's Performance Academy in Washington released this statement:
"They were the nicest people you could ever meet.
"Angie and David were a loving husband and wife and doting parents who idolised their children and adored their grandchild.
"Carley and Beth followed their dreams and passion and danced with our school for many years taking part in competitions and performing in London and Paris.
"They were beautiful girls and amazing dancers with huge hearts and a passion to party. The angels will be rocking with the Cockburn family - heaven won't know what's hit it!"
