Evening of Dance at Bedford
There was a fabulous celebration of dedicated dancing on Thursday at Bedford. Involved were our partner primaries, Bedford Hall Methodist Primary, Leigh Central & Leigh St Mary’s, who performed with confidence and flair alongside our talented dancers who were simply stunning. The quality of their creativity and skill was truly impressive. They were a real credit to us. Our Dance Leaders have loved the opportunity to perform with the primary dancers and have taken on the coaching and leadership role with professionalism.
