Krazy night in Barrow for young dancers

YOUNG dancing stars enthralled audiences with their fast footwork and stunning choreography after performing at two Barrow charity nights.

Performers from the Imperial School of Dance, who train in St Matthew’s church hall in Highfield Road, Barrow, wowed crowds on Tuesday and Wednesday, with their hip-hop, jazz, tap and ballet routines.

Around 120 dancers took to the stage at The Forum in Duke Street for the group’s annual Dance Krazy spectacle, which raised money for local charities.

The packed venue was a vision of glitter, sequins and colour, with members donning specially made bright costumes, wigs and hats.

The group performed to songs from fairytales as well as classics from X Factor contestants and acts who appeared on ITV2’s The Big Reunion.

Pauline Barker, who has been teaching dance at the school for 29 years, said she was proud of everyone involved in the effort.

She said: “It was a lovely show and, from the feedback we got from the audience, everybody was amazed by our dancers.

“I know all the dancers really enjoyed themselves because they are all so hyper and enthusiastic, and just love to entertain people.

“We started preparing around the middle of August so it has involved a lot of hard work and planning from everyone.

“We have a dancer as young as 18-months and a mothers’ troop too, so it was a real team effort.”

Dancers performed a talent show section, featuring songs and routines from the best and worst of the ITV singing competition, including Cher Lloyd, Little Mix, Jedward and Chico.

Ms Barker said the annual fundraiser usually raises £1,000 for charity. The group have not yet decided which charities in Barrow will benefit.

Winners of Lakes Got Talent 2013, Voce, also performed on both nights, charming the audience with their operatic voices.
