Youngsters dance like Hollywood stars
2:00pm Wednesday 19th December 2012 in What's On
TALENTED youngsters from The Lucy Gunter Dance and Theatre Arts Centre in Highbridge have brought the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to Somerset.
The performances during A Night at the Hollywood Oscars at Batch Country House transported the audience to the home of cinema, down the walk of fame, named celebrities and culminated in an Oscar-style awards ceremony.
Guests and pupils enjoyed a three-course dinner and then danced the night away to celebrate, while raising funds for the Highbridge Festival of Arts.
Principal Lucy Gunter said: “It was a fantastic end to a very busy but successful year and we are now looking forward to taking the show to the Princess Theatre and Arts Centre in Burnham on January 4 and 5.
“So far we have raised £500 for the Highbridge Festival and will continue to raise funds for them in January in the hope of increasing this figure for a well-deserved cause.”
