DANCERS from schools around the county showcased their talent in the Spotlight Dance Festival held at Uppingham Theatre last week.
During the four-day festival, about 400 young people aged six to 21 stepped on to the stage.
Both experienced dancers and those performing for the first time shared dances choreographed by themselves and their teachers throughout the last academic year.
Organiser Sarah Bell said: “It was great to see so much commitment, passion and energy on stage and young people leaving the theatre full of confidence and pride.”
“A huge thank you to all involved, to all the performers, the teaching staff, Uppingham Theatre and Windmill Trust.
