“The performers and choreographers have made us very proud - what a wonderful, well-deserved result!”

She added: “The professionalism of the students and the high quality of each performance left quite an impression on the spectators and the dancers are now looking forward to performing for the audiences at the dance festival for primary schools this week.”
