STRICTLY Come Danc­ing’s Pasha Ko­valev has been joined by young dancers from Hilling­don on his Life Through Dance tour.

The celebrity, who won the BBC show last year part­ner­ing Caro­line Flack, took to the stage at Beck Theatre, Hayes, with 35 per­form­ers from Hilling­don Theatre Dance Cen­tre, aged nine to 21, on May 9.

Stu­dents from the cen­tre also ap­peared on the West End, at Her Majesty’s Theatre, which is home to Phan­tom of the Opera, in a one-off show The Stars in Our Eyes on Tues­day, June 7.

Hilling­don Theatre Dance Cen­tre holds classes for chil­dren as young as 18 months at The Stu­dio, in Yiewsley High Street, and The Barn, in Kingston Lane, Uxbridge.

It pro­vides train­ing in clas­si­cal bal­let, mod­ern theatre, tap, jazz, con­tem­po­rary, singing and per­for­mance skills.

Prin­ci­pal He­len White said: “I’m im­mensely proud of what our dancers have achieved and feel it is of ut­most im­por­tance they are given op­por­tu­ni­ties to per­form at such ex­cit­ing venues, and with cur­rent celebri­ties such as Pasha.”
