»Talented students from a dance school displayed their skills as part of a special show at the Queen’s Theatre.

More than 100 young people aged two to 22 from the Finch Stage School in Dagenham took to the stage for their annual show When I Grow Up at the theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch recently.

Highlights included senior pupils performing The Man, which was recently performed at The London Palladium and Sing Sing Sing.

The lower seniors also performed routines to Money from Cabaret and they also did a Olympic themed street dance piece called 2012.

Other highlights included a performance from the younger pupils of Chicken Dance and When My Life Begins.

Anna Dayson, whose daughter was performing at the show said: “The show-stopper was undoubtably a spectacular musical theatre excerpt from the hit musical Matilda which closed the first half, it was without a doubt truly magical and felt as though you were watching a West End show.”

The school has been hailed as the longest running stage school in Essex. They perform every year at the Queen’s Theatre and other venues in Dagenham and Havering.
