East End dancers show off their steps
PERFORMING arts students showed off their dance skills at an end of term show to mark their achievement.
Organised by dance tutor Annarita Mazzilli, the event last month, highlighted the impressive moves students had picked during dance classes offered by Tower Hamlets Council’s Lifelong Learning Service.
Pupils took part in a range of classes last term from Ballet, Flamenco, African dance and Jazz right through to Urban Mix and Street dance.
Students who took part in the singing course – Free Your Voice - also joined in the celebrations. The audience was also invited to try out different dances by taking part in taster sessions with the performers.
Fiona Paterson, Head of Adult and Community Education at Tower Hamlets council who attended the event said: “Dancing is an enjoyable and fun way to get fit and make new friends. I really enjoyed the show and it was good fun to try out some of the dances too.
“The show also demonstrated the diverse range of dance courses available in the borough and there is a great choice for everyone, not just salsa!”
The council offers hundreds of courses through its Lifelong Learning Service to suit all tastes and abilities.
