Their energetic and colourful two hours annual show held a packed Melton Theatre spellbound throughout.

Academy founder and dance teacher Clare Calder said: “I am so proud of all the children.

“They performed beautifully but most importantly, it was great to see how much they enjoyed it.

She said: “To hear the younger ones chanting ‘best day of my life’ in the changing room afterwards was fantastic.

“Hopefully we’ve created some memories that will last a lifetime.

She added: “I’m also delighted that we’ve raised over £300 for Brain Tumour Charity.”

Afterwards parents and guests spoke of their delight at the performance.

Jo Lloyd, of Buckminster, said: “The choreography was simply amazing, the standard so high and most importantly every child looked as though they were having a ball.”

Anne Daly, of Bottesford, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed it. How the academy gets the children to that standard when they can only practice for a couple of hours a week is incredible.”

Grantham Preparatory School teacher, Wendy said: “The dance school’s energy, ethos and discipline was fabulous.”

Kirsty Bloor, of Stathern, said: “Clare and the girls worked so hard and the results were just incredible.”
