There was dancing in the streets of Whitley Bay thanks to a fun-filled workshop.

Abby Forbes-Chambers, who runs Cullercoats-based Abby’s Theatre and Dance Academy, helped people of all ages become Hip-Hop experts with an energetic workshop.

The session, held at the Whitley Bay Big Local shop in Park View on August 8, provided a lively introduction to funky hip hop dance steps and children and adults alike got involved.

Abby said: “Dance is such a great way for people of all ages to benefit from a bit of exercise in a really fun way and it was such fun bringing my HIP POP workshop to Whitley Bay.

“We take the basics of hip hop dance and create a fun-filled session that anyone, no matter what previous dance experience they have, can take part in.”

Sarah Sutton, volunteer co-ordinator with Whitley Bay Big Local, added: “The HIP POP workshop was a hugely popular part of our summer activity programme and it was great to see people of all ages getting involved.”
