YOUNGSTERS in Barrow learned how to bust a move at urban dance sessions put on by a respected choreographer.
Andy Instone, the creative director of Urban Strides, visited five schools in Barrow over two days, teaching pupils the art of street dance and how the style has evolved over the years.
The choreographer, who has worked with the likes of Dizzee Rascal in the past, visited Greengate Infant School, Greengate Junior School, Yarlside Primary School, Victoria Junior School and Chetwynde School on Thursday and Friday on his mini-tour.
Caroline Hoggarth, headteacher of Greengate Infant School, said pupils thoroughly enjoyed learning dance moves and put on their own performance to hip-hop music in front of parents.
She said: “It was fantastic that a world-renowned choreographer came to Barrow. It was a once in a life time opportunity for our pupils.
“He was absolutely inspirational.”
