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.
