MORE than 300 children from North Somerset will be showcasing their dance skills during performances at the end of the month.

All members of the Adele Stitch School of Dance, which holds classes in Nailsea and Backwell, will take part in the first show to be put on by the school since being taken over by Adele last year.

The performers will range in age from two-and-a-half to 17 and they have been training for the last five months in preparation.

The first half of the show will be based on the tales of Hans Christian Andersen, who will be played by Matthew Marrs.

The second half will be called Viva Las Vegas.

Adele said: "It is so exciting to be organising the first showcase of the school since I took over and the children have been working so hard to prepare."

The show will be performed at 1.30pm and 4.30pm on January 30 and at 12noon and 3.30pm on January 31 at the new Nailsea School theatre.

Tickets, priced £5-7, are available on 01275 853797.
