Hundreds of children starred in Dance Their Socks Off this week.


Hundreds of primary school children showed off their best dance moves this week, as a popular school event marked its 10th anniversary.

Churchill Academy’s Dance Their Socks Off (DTSO) show was held at Weston’s Playhouse on Monday and Tuesday.

Youngsters from primary schools across North Somerset took part, performing internationally-influenced routines.

More than 1,200 watched the shows which included dances from Bollywood to New Zealand’s Haka.

Churchill headteacher Chris Hildrew said: “DTSO is a great example of what can be accomplished through collaboration between schools, and it’s wonderful to see such enthusiasm from all the primary schools involved.

“DTSO has become a tradition among our primary schools and one we are proud to be able to support.

“Our own students were a credit to the academy, delivering polished routines with real conviction.”
