A busy Christmas for three of our dancers will be spent appearing in Pantomime.
Jackie Bearman, Dance School principle, said: “The children have worked very hard to achieve these results and given up a lot of time for the rehearsals.
“They enjoyed the experience, although they were a bit nervous but they’re very proud of what they have achieved and so was I and everyone at the dance school.
“It’s improved their confidence and this will all help as they continue to help them for their all important dance exams coming up next term in March and July.
