They provide the perfect antidote to the social issues facing young people today providing purpose and motivation at difficult times.

Summer Dance Course Review

Summer Dance Course 2013

BUDDING young performers spent some of  their school holidays sharpening their dance moves after taking part in a Harlow dance school’s intensive summer course.

Almost 80 youngsters ranging in age from four  to 15 worked up a sweat during the week-long course run by husband-and-wife team Scott and Victoria Simpson at Makin’ Steps.

Their hard work culminated in two shows staged for friends and family at the Potter Street Community Centre.

Those taking part spent the week making friends and perfecting routines in a  range of dance disciplines, including street, hip-hop, ballet, tap and modern.

Scott said he had been extremely impressed with the aptitude shown by his young pupils.

“The week was so much fun and they worked extremely hard to learn and perfect the numbers ready for the shows,” he said. “As well as learning them, they also had quick changes to contend with and for some it was the first time they had performed on stage.

“Victoria and I were so very proud of them all. They showed real professionalism and their hard work really paid off.

“It was nice to see so many smiling faces, not only on stage but in the audience, too!”
