A PACKED audience at the Forum watched in awe as talented tots and dexterous dancers showed off their skills.

This year's Furness Lions Club dancing competition didn't fail to disappoint as groups and troupes from across Barrow and Dalton took to the stage to wow the crowd.

The annual showcase was held on Sunday June 9 and featured performances by Dance Fever, Steps Incorporated, Instep School of Dance, Dance Tazia, Dance Fusion, and Imperial School of Dance.

In total 52 dance groups took part in the event which was overseen by Master of Ceremonies Terry Yates.

Furness Lions membership chairman Ted Rockley said: "Many thanks go to the judges who came from as far as Manchester for the occasion.

"Our thanks go to Lion Doug Jefferson and Lion President Karen Yates for organising the whole event.

"Thanks also to the Lions Ladies for judging the costumes."

Furness Lions members meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 7.30pm at the Royal British Legion Club in Holker Street.
