Dancers from the age of six to 14 descended on Hunstanton Town Hall on Sunday for the town’s Dance Festival, organised by Michelle Rollason.

Jacqueline Sindle whose own career started at the age of four and included TV and West End shows adjudicated the event that is known as the ‘friendly festival’ drawing dancers from around the county and beyond each year with competitions across the dance disciplines.

In a high scoring competition all the dancers achieved at least 84 marks with four outstanding dancers achieving Honours.

They were: Megan Norgate for her Modern Solo, Isobel Pearson for her Modern Solo and Tommy Rollason and Macy Hodgson for their Street Dance Duet.

An Honours performance of 90 plus points is described as: “An exceptional performance, both technically and artistically.”

Ms Sindle said: “We often forget how young these dancers are; their performances are really fabulous.

“Today we have seen a good mix of styles with some 
excellent dancing and it has been a thoroughly enjoyable festival.”

Mrs Rollason said: “The dancers have done really well; they’ve performed well and learned a lot too.

“We are so lucky to have such a highly regarded 
adjudicator in Jacqueline whose experience in the West End and knowledge of all the dance disciplines is incredible.

“She took the time with every dancer to praise what was good, and offered advice on how to improve about their performance.”
