They treated the audience to a stunning variety of dance and contemporary work from GCSE and A Level students.

Following community dance work with teacher Elaine Vanner, Sandown primary school also participated in the Dance Show and performed an atmospheric dance piece.

The work was based on cross-curricular links with English and their present literature on Excalibur and received great applause from the audience.

Teacher Elaine Vanner said “The audience thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining evening and remarked on the incredible originality of the dance course work.

Primary parents commented on how truly amazed they were by the talent on show.

“Well done to all those who took part in this inspiring event.”
