Young dancers from the Horncastle’s Dance 10 School of Performing Arts have once again achieved a 100 percent pass rate for their ballet and tap examinations.

Over the last 17 years the school, run by Sonia Boddy, has nurtured hundreds of young dancers from the age of three to adult in classical ballet through to musical theatre.

Dance 10 also had some fun over the weekend by holding a Red Nose ballet class where the students taught their parents everything from plies to pirouettes.

The event raised more than £100 for the charity.
