A Dance Troupe from Trimdon Community Nursery and Infant School gave a ‘heated’ performance of the Fire Dance.
Following an introduction by 2 of the young dancers to the assembled large crowd of onlookers the music played and the dance began. With confidence and rhythm the dancers swooped and swayed to the music. Wearing their colourful costumes they delighted the enthusiastic audience. and their head teacher, Mrs Fuller who enthusiastically supported the Community Event and encouraged the children and parents to participate.
