Students at the Ripley Academy of Dance having been eagerly preparing for a magical dance extravaganza.

Rehearsals started at the beginning of term for the academy’s annual production at The Guildhall Theatre in Derby - this year entitled The Magic of Dance.

Principal Felicity Cutting said: “The compilation of dance pieces explores classical ballet, modern ballet, tap, modern-stage, musical theatre and the all-powerful street dance!

“Students have been putting their all into making this show come to life and audiences will certainly be in for a treat.

“Everyone has worked so hard in the run up to the production and we are all very excited to see it onstage!”

Performances are on November 20, 21 and 22 – all starting at 7pm - and feature choreography from the academy’s teachers.
