Thank you to the organizers of The Springtime Dance Festival for making our students so welcome and to the adjudicator Miss Gayle Johnson for her valuable words of wisdom. This was our first visit to Heckmondwyke and we would not hesitate to return. The performances were inspiring, particularly the senior modern jazz championship semi final and the festival atmosphere was lovely. For us this is the purpose of travelling and the shared experience of festivals. All of that would have been enough but there is more!!!!! Megan Little and Jennifer Little were selected to perform in that excellent semi final of the modern championship and Abigail Tildesley was placed 5th in the final. You only have to look at the photographs below to see how delighted Abigail Tildesley and Freya Burdon Watson were to win the Senior and Junior South East Yorkshire Tap Championships respectively. Well done to all concerned with the event.
