Youngsters got into the groove at a national schools dance contest held in the city yesterday.

A total 24 schools from across the country came to The New Theatre for the finals of the Great Big Dance Off.

Among them were Eynsham Primary School’s Under The Sea routine from Disney movie The Little Mermaid and a Charleston dance by 26 from Appleton Primary School.

Teacher Gemma Leggett said: “We have been rehearsing for about an hour a week for six weeks. It has been hectic.

“It is very fast and there are a lot things to remember.”

The results from the contest – which also included secondary schools – were not available last night.
