Grantham School of Dance pupils are celebrating a successful year

Have your say

As pupils of the Grantham School of Dance prepare for their annual production in the summer, they have been reflecting on the past year.

The last 12 months has seen them perform free of charge at over 20 venues as part of their drive to “give back to the community”.
Among them were Harlaxton Manor, Belton Woods Hotel, Gregory House, Chameleon Music Bar, the Guildhall Arts Centre, The Meres Leisure Centre and even as far as Doncaster’s folk festival and Leicester’s Batemans Brewery.

The school’s Jill Anderson said: “A massive well done to all dancers for your passion, hard work and commitment; your star quality speaks for itself.
“Looking forward to this year’s production which we know will be outstanding as always. Keep on dancing!”
