Brent students will strut their stuff at dance extravaganza in Willesden

Six schools from across the borough will be taking part in Step into Dance event

Students from six schools in the borough will be strutting their stuff at a dance extravaganza taking place nest week.

The youngsters will be showing of their best footwork at the event organised by Step into Dance, a community youth programme which aims to encourage greater participation in all forms of dance.

The students, aged between 11 and 16, will show off their dance talents to an audience of friends, teachers, families and fellow pupils at Capital City Academy in Doyle Gardens, Willesden, on April 17.

Groups that show real dedication and commitment will be invited by Step into Dance to represent Brent at Step LIVE! 2012 which be held at Southbank Centre on July 7.

Sue Goodman, Step into Dance Artistic Director, said: “For many of our dancers, this will be the first time they have performed in public, so understandably they are excited about showcasing their skills to an audience here in Brent as well as the chance to take their performance to Southbank Centre in July”.

Step into Dance, a partnership programme between the Royal Academy of Dance and The Jack Petchey Foundation, is the biggest secondary school community dance programme in the UK.
