Youngsters show they know all the right moves

Primary school children gather in Axmnster for a festival of dance

Children from across East Devon descended on Axminster to take part in a dance festival at the Axe Valley Community College.

Pupils from 11 primary schools in the area had spent six weeks rehearsing for the big event.

They learnt four dances inspired by children’s books - Giraffes Can’t Dance, Mr Wolf’s Weather Week, Spider-Man and The Beautiful Sunflower.

All the dances were very different and captured the imagination of the youngsters.
