The show was the last chance for the Year 11 students on the course, to display what they had learned over the past two years.

A lot of them will now move on to study dance courses at places including East Durham College, in Peterlee, and City of Sunderland College.

There are 74 girls on the course, with one boy, Ashleigh Bell, 16, from Peterlee.

The Year 9 and 10 students at the Manor Way-based school also took part in the event.

Each group did two performances in a variety of dance styles, including rock ‘n’ roll, contemporary, modern, stage, jazz and street.

The show also featured a Queen medley, as well as chart songs and hits from the musicals.

Rachel Milne, BTEC dance teacher at the school, said: “The students have been working very hard towards the event and did their parents and myself proud.

“I wish them all the best in whatever they choose to do.”
