The event’s organiser Mrs Samantha Saunders, Acting Head of Dance, comments on the show: “This was yet again a very successful event with such diversity of dance.  The standard at which the students performed was first class and demonstrates the natural talent, ability and creativity we have in the area.  The passion and drive from all the dance teachers is exceptional and I’m very proud to be able to provide these young people the opportunity to perform in front of a sell-out audience!”
