Children had double reason to celebrate at their dance academy.

Youngsters at Abby’s Theatre & Dance Academy held a party to mark the academy’s first anniversary and the children’s recent exam success.

Trophies, certificates and rosettes were handed out to children for their dancing and drama work.

Abby Forbes-Chambers said: “It is so rewarding to see my students growing in confidence, learning new skills and enjoying their classes.

“I can’t believe how much we have grown in a year. I am so thankful for all the support I have received this year and look forward to the future.”

The academy, based in Cullercoats and offers classes to children and adults, is now preparing for a movie-themed summer show on July 3. The children will perform Annie, Wizard of Oz, James Bond, Toy Story and Hairspray medleys.
