Audiences had a ball when these primary school pupils wowed with a series of dance performances.

Classes Blacko and Towneley, of St Philip’s CE Primary School, Nelson, pirouetted their skills in the inaugural School of Dance show night.

A whirl of skill was on display when they performed the jive at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, followed by a grand finale of nine schools taking part in The Last Waltz.

The children took lessons in ballroom dance from a professional teacher visiting school to deliver four one-hour sessions.

A daytime rehearsal took place on Monday, March 6th in the Tower Ballroom followed by the evening’s performance.
