More than 200 young dancers peformed some of their best moves at the third Clevedon Cluster Dance Festival. The event, hosted by Clevedon School in Valley Road, saw pupils from Yeo Moor, Tickenham and All Saints primary schools showcase the work that had been taught and choreographed by year nine Clevedon Arts Award students. The event, which was witnessed by an audience of 400 people, was also a presentation of the work created throughout the year through the curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Debbie Morgan, co-ordinator of dance, said: “This was another fantastic event that demonstrates the students’ creativity, enthusiasm and talent for dance.
