Young dancers from Dereham Neatherd High School have thrilled an audience at the Dereham Memorial Hall.

Many of the Year 7, 8, and 9 students who took part in the March 22 event were performing for the first time.

Highlights included the school’s ‘Ignite’ dance group, who choreographed a high-energy commercial piece as well as a contemporary piece, and the younger ‘Illusions’ group who are now working with a new director.

Year 8s closed the show with a rendition of ‘Greased Lightning’.

Marion Broughton, from the school, said: “The calibre of the GCSE choreographies was exemplary and some pieces had the audience in tears.

“Greased Lightning included the whole cast and seemed a fitting and highly enjoyable way to close the show.

“Congratulations to all those on-stage, back stage and behind the scenes for a wonderful effort.”
