The competition was judged by Scott Hepburn, a member of Clacton Fire Station’s Red Watch. Scott swapped his fire gear for dance suits when Red Watch took part in hit Sky One programme Ashley Banjo's Secret Street Crew.
Premier Performing Arts own cheerleading squad "Infinity" wowed the crowd with their opening routine before a number of local school children took to the stage to perform routines. In an action-packed day, the standard was very high with parents showing their appreciation for every performance.
There had to be a winner and Highwoods Community Primary School’s Musical Theatre children scored top marks for their own singing, dancing and acting version of Disney’s ‘Frozen’.
Speaking after the event, local Premier Performing Arts Dance Director, Bethan Bradshaw said, "I am so proud of every single child here today, what they have achieved in such a relatively short space of time is nothing short of a miracle. They should all give themselves a big pat on the back... I can’t wait to see what they will achieve in the future."
Bethan is choreographer to the ‘Infinity’ team who are now set to compete in upcoming regional and national events later this year. We wish them the best of luck.
The children from Brinkley Grove Primary School (Colchester), Highwoods Community Primary School (Colchester), Beaumont Community Primary School (Hadleigh) and Willowbrook Primary School (Colchester) all performed at the event.
