STONEHAM (CBS) – In this edition of Women’s Watch, two young Stoneham sisters are heading to Germany to represent the United States in an international dance competition.

Ella and Flora Dickens are about to walk onto the international stage – or rather dance.

WBZ’s Laurie Kirby talks with the girls’ mom, Laurie, as they practice their dance routine and try to raise money for their trip.

Ella, 13, and her sister, Flora, 10, are each one of three people in their age division selected to represent the United States at a world dance competition in Germany.

Ella and Flora beat out the competition with an African dance duo and some solo dances that include acrobatics.

The girls are looking to raise money for their trip to Germany.

Their mother, Laurie Dickens, says they’ve set up a website for donations to help the girls go to Germany and compete this coming Saturday, November 23rd.
