Garstang School of Dance is holding its next show, Dance Fever 2012, at the Charter Theatre, Preston, this Friday (March 10).

More than 300 children and adults from the Garstang area are taking part, with ages ranging from two-and-a-half to 50 showing off their ballet, modern and tap skills.

Teachers Pamela Proctor, Claire Pedder and Claire Whiteside have choreographed and produced the show, and say they are proud of everyone taking part and grateful to parents for their support.

“We feel very lucky to teach such lovely children,” said Pamela.

“The students have been rehearsing for a few months and have fantastic routines and costumes.

“We have also managed to sell out at the Charter Theatre.”

Children or adults wanting to be in the next show, or to start dancing with the group, should call Pamela on 07976 617067, or visit the website
