This weekend saw the first two days of the annual East Midlands Dance Festival with day three this coming Sunday at Wreake Valley Academy. This fabulous event is organised by the team at the Footloose Stage School, whose dancers featured heavily in the medals. The Festival was staged at Wreake Valley Academy in Syston and was attended by dancers from the Karen Loomes Dance Academy, Etoile Performance Academy, Team Troupers Dance Academy, The Starlets Performing Arts School of Dance, JEM Performing Arts School, Showstoppers Academy of Dance and of course the Footloose Stage School. The Festival was expertly adjudicated by Miss Michelle from the Steps Theatre School of Dance. Over 7000 images were taken over the weekend in a marathon schedule of two 12 hour sessions. I look forward to the third and final instalment this weekend.
