A group of pupils from Bede's Legat Dance Academy had the chance to take to the main stage at the opening of Move It at London's Excel Centre recently.
Following a round of successful auditions, the 15 pupils entertained a packed audience with a group dance called Red, choreographed by Bede's Director of Dance, Sherrie Pennington and her colleague, Emma Manes.
"This was such an achievement for our dancers," said Sherrie.
"Move It is a massive event and it is something that we have always wanted to do.
"To get through the auditions and take the second slot on the main stage on the opening day is a testimony to all our students and their talent."
Move It is billed as the biggest dance event in the world and brings together thousands of dancers over three days covering all genres from street dance, to ballet, hip hop to contemporary jazz.
Attendees have a chance to meet with professionals and also representatives from dance schools and colleges across the UK as well as taking part in classes.
