Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

AN Ash­ford dance prin­ci­pal was re­duced to tears of hap­pi­ness as her stu­dents were greeted with roar­ing ap­plause on stage at the Royal Al­bert Hall. Amy Mead, of Feet Beats Dance School, said: “I cried my eyes out just look­ing at the pride on their par­ents’ faces as they all joined in with the rest of the 5,000-strong au­di­ence to ac­knowl­edge them.” Her stu­dents were among 24 other schools from around Bri­tain who dis­played their tal­ents on Sun­day in a pro­duc­tion called The Mardi Gras Stars in the Round. “Our stu­dents re­ally wowed the au­di­ence,” said Amy. “The ap­plause was rap­tur­ous and pro­longed – im­mense. It was truly amaz­ing. “I cried my eyes out, just watch­ing their par­ents clap­ping and wav­ing to them. I knew I had done my job.” The school has three lo­ca­tions for classes in Ten­ter­den, Bid­den­den and more re­cently at Ash­ford’s Stour Cen­tre.
