STUDENTS from Stagecoach Performing Arts Taunton showed off their amazing talent by joining Strictly Come Dancing's Kristina Rihanoff on stage.

The star had invited them to take part in her Dance to the Music show at The Brewhouse Theatre, in Taunton.

With music and dance travelling through the decades, the youngsters gave a high energy, upbeat routine from the 1980s choreographed by school principal Anne Garrett.

She said: "This was a fantastic opportunity for all the students taking part.

"We had 21 children, with the youngest at six years up to 14 years.

"They all had an amazing time performing in two shows and made me and many families very proud.

"My hope is that taking part in these experiences really builds children’s confidence for life, inspiring them in the different aspects of theatre, and importantly how much fun can be had after all our hard work.

"We all feel very grateful that Kristina invited Stagecoach, as one of the most renowned and established theatre schools - over 30 years - in the area, to be part of her fabulous show."
