Waiting for Video...

A dance extravaganza was presented by stage stars of the future at the Opera House in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Twinkletoes had an impressive 400-strong cast of young dancers from the Fylde coast and beyond.

It featured pupils from the Barbara Jackson Theatre Arts Centre which teaches youngsters everything from singing and drama to ballet and hip-hop.

The school produces and performs a big show every two years and it has grown in size over the decades.

Lorraine Hill, who organised the show, said: “It is fantastic fun and it gives our pupils a chance to experience what it is like to perform on a professional stage.

“It’s a wonderful thrill for them and they love it.”

The show also raised money for good causes with proceeds going to the breast cancer charity Hug In A Bag and Brian House children’s hospice.
