Budding young dancers from a Huntingdon school are getting ready for a one-off performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre, in London, on Sunday.

The group of 27 students from Wendy Burke School of Dance, in Orchard Lane, are rehearsing for dances showcasing jazz, tap, hip hop and contemporary styles.

This follows the exam success achieved by the seven to 18-year-olds in January, including a number of distinctions.

Principal Wendy Burke said: “We have some great laughs and a few stresses along the way, but although the age range is vast, the team are working together so well.

“It is always a joy to see everyone looking out for and helping each other. I know they will make us all very proud.”
