Congratulations to all our pupils on what was the first medallist competition of 2017.

Special mention goes to Rod & Jane who participated in their very first ever dance competition and managed to make nearly all their finals beating some very good dancers in the process.
Everyone dance terrific today and it was lovely to see such a fantastic turn out by so many schools, especially some new ones, which added to the difficulty of the standard. We loved the challenge and its great to see such support for the competition.
