Students from a performing arts school were ecstatic after winning a place in the final of a national group dance competition.

Gillham School of Performing Arts, Wickham Lane, Welling, will take part in the grand finals of That’s Showbiz 2014 at the Blackpool Opera House and Winter Gardens in January.

The three performance teams, made up of dancers aged seven to 18, will perform six routines.

The three groups, Primary, Junior and Senior, have won more than 25 1st place trophies already this year.

Their place in the final was welcome news after two of the teams were offered a place in the USA grand finals of the “Starpower International” competition, but unfortunately could not raise the funds in time to go.

Principal Laura Gillham commented: “We got such amazing feedback and we are so proud of them.”
