TALENTED youngsters from across East Lancashire put all their enthusiasm into a dance festival.

Dancers from organisations including the East Lancashire School of Dance, the Encore School of Dance, both in Colne, and The Dance Factory in Blackburn, took to the stage at Pendle Hippodrome Theatre for the Cecil Bateson Memorial Dance Festival.

The adjudicator was Carrie Ellis, who trained at Arts Educational School, in London, and has performed in the West End, in national tours and on television.

She danced at the festival when she was younger under the tuition of her mother Noeleen Belshaw.

Competitors included eight-year-old Caitlin Dullanty, who attends the Joy Waring School of Dance in Feniscowles, Blackburn, and won the junior novice section.

The festival will be held again in March next year.
