Excited pupils of the Everett-Fox School of Dance held a special show combined with a dress rehearsal in their community before heading off to perform on the London stage.
Twenty-one local dancers aged between six and 14 from the Misterton school were thrilled to appear on stage at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
A dance school spokeswoman said: “Local youngsters have never had this sort of opportunity before and wanted family and friends to help celebrate this achievement.”
The youngsters performed before a packed house, and the event raised £185 towards the cost of glitzy costumes for the show in the capital, and for the pupils’ next local production on May 16, 17, and 18, with a final matinee performance.
Six-year-old Anna Cockerham is pictured above, dancing in the pupils’ rendition of Dambusters. Their second dance, that also proved a popular choice, was Moves Like Jagger.
The 2014 celebratory show will coincide with EFSD being open for exactly seven years!
