WE go back 21 years for this week's Days of the Old School Yard when young dancers trouped off with a clutch of trophies.
It was back in 1988 when months of hard work paid off handsomely for pupils from the Jean-netts Dancing School in Bryant Street, Stratford.
They waltzed off with most of the major prizes at the Dance World London championships.
"We always seem to come out tops," said the proud boss of the school Jean Brooks.
