School children from Whitstable and Herne Bay perform West End hits at dance festival

28 March 2014

Youngsters drew inspiration from the best of West End hits at a stunning dance festival.

More than 150 pupils took part in the event at Herne Bay High, performing routines from classics like Stomp!, Grease, Matilda and Oliver!.

It was the fourth collaboration between local infant and primary schools and Herne Bay High School, set up as part of the Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy.

Herne Infants children rehearsed for six weeks, with sessions organised by Fiona Ingram and Paula Fordyce.

Ms Ingram said: “They loved it. One or two had the wobbles but they all did a great job and were thrilled to be there. We were so proud of them.”
