Hundreds of Cumbria children show moves on stage

YOUNGSTERS from schools across Furness took part in a dance spectacular this week.

InsideOut Dance showcased its latest initiative with a spectacular show at The Forum on Monday morning.

InsideOut boss Neil Doherty explained how staff had been going into schools and teaching dance to Year Two children in Barrow, Dalton and Ireleth. In total they visited eight schools and taught 15 classes.

On Monday 375 children showed off their new moves on the stage at the Barrow venue, in Duke Street.

Next month will see them teaching Year One pupils to dance culminating in another show in February.

Mr Doherty said it was a great show and the children really enjoyed taking part.

He said: “It was brilliant, really fantastic.

“Over the last five weeks two or three of our instructors have been going into schools to teach dance.

“We will be going back next term to teach more children.

“All the way through the year we are doing dance or football and it really inspires the children to get involved and develop a positive attitude to physical activity.”

As well as the dance event in February there will be a football one in March, followed by Olympic themed training in May and July.

InsideOut Soccer Schools was formed in April 2006 and was the brainchild of soccer hero, former Barrow AFC footballer Mr Doherty.

His company provides a range of activities for children aged between three and 16, throughout the Furness area.
