DANCERS from the Sheila Price Dance School performed in a series of shows in Bourton-on-the-Water.

The shows, entitled ‘A Day in London’ featured tots from four years old to young adult dancers, aged 17, in a programme of diverse pieces inspired by places in London, including the planetarium, Hamleys toy shop, Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, Paddington Station and the Imperial War Museum.

]Dances ranged from classical ballet to tap, contemporary and modern, and showcased the new classes and extend range of dance styles recently introduced by the Sheila Price Dance School.

Taking place mostly at the leisure centre at the Cotswold School, the new classes are being lead by Ms Price's daughter, Beccy Clark, who began working with her mum when she was thirteen years old.

She said: "The core of my teacher training came from my mum.

"It’s such a tough age.

"And my aim is to create an environment where they have the confidence and motivation to really explore the art form allowing them to build on their emotional and physical strength.

"I really want to encourage them to find the inspiration to take ownership of their progress and enhance their training in a way that’s suitable for them as an individual. These are really important life skills regardless of the professional path they take beyond their teenage years."

Many of her former pupils are now professional dancers either on tour, in the West End or abroad in shows such as Cats, War Horse, Grease, Jersey Boys and Les Miserable. Others have toured with dance companies such as the Richard Alston Company.

There are ballet, modern, contemporary and tap classes for all ages, from tots to teens, starting from pre-school and going through to Year 13, as well as adult ballet and tap classes.
