A group of 35 talented young dancers from Ipswich School of Dancing took to the stage with BBC Strictly Come Dancing stars Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis.

The budding stars travelled to The Princes Theatre in Clacton to perform with the top dancers on their Magic of Hollywood tour. This is the sixth year that Pasha has invited the Ipswich School of Dancing to join him.

Teacher Emma Hawley said: “The children have been working so incredibly hard on this project for the past six months. It is the highlight of the calendar and they have been extremely excited about meeting Pasha.

“It’s a great experience for them to meet their idols. During the training for this, they also get to see how hard they must work and how dedicated they need to be to achieve their goals.

“The cheers from the audience showed how well they had done and I’m sure this is an evening they won’t be forgetting any time soon!”
