SOME 40 young dancers enjoyed the chance to perform alongside their TV heroes at Weston's Playhouse theatre this week.
Youngsters from Burnham’s DanceFit group joined Strictly Come Dancing performers Pasha Kovalev and Katya Virshilas for a medley performance.
The group displayed a range of expert dance techniques to music as varied as Gangnam style to Abba.
DanceFit spokesman Victoria Roberts said: “It was an absolutely fantastic evening performing to a sell-out crowd. Some of the children taking part have never performed on a stage before and made their debut with stars.
“The children all got to spend some time with Pasha and Katya, getting photographs and their T-shirts signed.
“It was such a brilliant opportunity for the children to be a part of a professional show and to be so close to dancers of that standard.”
