Barking dancers appear in Olympic-themed show

Barking Abbey dancers performed in an Olympic-themed show on the Southbank.

Nearly 50 schools, including the secondary in Sandringham Road, Barking, participated in Step Live! on July 7.

Around 780 students gave show-stopping performances featuring hip-hop, musical theatre and cheerleading at the Southbank Centre.

Artistic director, Sue Goodman, said: “This has been quite a Herculean task but we made it.

“All our dancers thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We look forward to creating more enriching opportunities for our dancers next year.”
