Pupils from two borough schools put on their dancing shoes yesterday as they combined for a special performance and workshop.

Nimble footed youngsters from Marjorie McClure Specialist School, in Hawkwood Lane, Chislehurst visited students at Bromley High School, in Blackbrook Lane, as part of a community dance programme.

Step into Dance operates in more than 200 schools throughout London and Essex, providing free dance teaching to students between the ages of 11 and 18.

Marjorie McClure dancers have been working with Gemma Coldicott, Step into Dance development officer, to choreograph and perfect their moves.

She said: “I am really proud of what the students have achieved, they have made huge progress in such a short space of time.

“They demonstrated that disabilities are not a barrier to working with mainstream students.”
