Pupils showed off their best moves as part of a school dance festival.

The children from six primary schools were at Valence Primary in Dagenham to perform in front of peers, members of staff and family.

Valence PE teacher Jayne Pollard said: “It was an opportunity for the pupils, who take part in dance clubs at their schools, to showcase what they’ve learned over the year. They all had a fantastic time.”

The schools taking part in the event, which featured guest performances from the S.E.M Irish Dance School, were Manor Longbridge, South Wood, Becontree, St Peter’s, William Bellamy and Valence Primary.
