BUDDING dancers at an East End college will be learning how to strut their stuff following a cash boost from Sport England.
Pupils at Tower Hamlets College will be taught a range of different types of dance, from Street to contemporary, in a series of lessons over 10 weeks.
The classes, led by qualified student teachers from London South Bank University, are being funded by �450 from Sport Unlimited, which is a new programme run by Sport England.
The pupils at the college in Poplar will be showing off their moves at a dance event later in the spring.
