Youngsters who learn to dance in community halls will take centre stage in London’s West End on Sunday night.

An audience of 1,200 people at Her Majesty’s Theatre will see pupils from The Rebecca Dear School of Dance perform two big numbers, Party Rock Anthem and Dance With Me Tonight, in The Young Performers’ Variety Show.

More than half the 30-strong group come from Sutton Bridge, four from Donington and the remainder from Ruskington, near Sleaford, where dance school boss Rebecca Harris holds her classes.

Mum of two Rebecca (28) said: “All of the pupils have taken part in our local shows before at The South Holland Centre, but never performed in London. We have been working on these dances since November and all the hard work is worth it.

“It is a once in a lifetime experience for them and I am very proud of them all. The dedication that the pupils and parents have put in to do the show has been wonderful to see.”

The dancers are aged from seven to 17.

Rebecca, who lives in Holbeach. formed her dance group nine years ago and teaches ballet, tap and jazz.
