MORE than 350 young dancers will be taking to the stage for a charity show.
The pupils from the June Glennie School of Dance, based in Beccles and Lowestoft, will be performing at Great Yarmouth's Britannia Pier Theatre from October 23 to 25.
Dance Aid 2003 is the school's annual charity show and has had to forsake its regular home in north Suffolk as there is no suitable venue to accommodate so many dancers.
The theatre in Great Yarmouth was chosen for the venue as it has a big stage and enough changing facilities for all the young dancers.
