“It creates amazing memories for them and the family watching.

“It teaches the children to work as a team and gives them an extra confidence from taking part.”

The display was choreographed by Pamela and instructors Claire Pedder, Claire Redmayne, Rebecca Donor and Donna Fleming.

The school has now been running for 16 years and offers dance classes in ballet, modern and tap for children and tap and dance fit classes for adults in Garstang and the surrounding areas.
