Young dancers step up

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

DANCE stu­dents from Che­sham per­formed on a Lon­don stage in the West End at the week­end.

The Step to it Dance Academy, based in Che­sham, per­formed at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Lon­don on Sun­day.

More than 30 chil­dren aged be­tween five and 18 took part in a va­ri­ety per­for­mance called First Class with other dance schools from across the UK.

Schools were al­lowed to chore­o­graph any piece that they wanted.

Step to it Dance Academy chose the Wizard of Oz, which saw stu­dents per­form in three six minute sec­tions. The per­for­mance in­cluded the char­ac­ters of Dorothy, Tin Man, Scare­crow, Lion, the Wicked Witch of the West and of course the Munchkins.

Prin­ci­pal Nikki Van­nMor­ris said: “As their prin­ci­pal I am ex­tremely proud of all their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion over the last few months.

“They were ab­so­lutely amaz­ing and their per­for­mance was full of vi­tal­ity and en­ergy. It was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to dance on a West End stage where the Phan­tom of the Opera is cur­rently on.”
