Twinkle-toed students of Wexford School of Ballet and Modern Dance were busy rehearsing last week ahead of their annual Summer Schools showcase on Friday evening.

The practice got under way from Monday of last week as the students studied their steps and rehearsed their repertoire at the dance studios in John Street.

Students put in a lot of hard work right up until Thursday evening and then moved to Wexford Arts Centre on Friday to have their final rehearsals ahead of their two evening performances at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The students experience and enthusiasm for dance meant that a quick turnaround into a second show was possible and both shows are said to have gone extremely well. Five teachers shared their expertise with the students throughout the fun filled week, some even travelleing from as far as London.

The performances also brought together five different genres of dance including Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary and singing.

The school reopens on September 1 with classes in all these disciplines.
