A SUCCESSFUL run of dance shows with truly professional polish gave a real boost to two cancer charities at Bridgwater’s town hall.

Young performers from the Julia McDonald Dance Company, the longestrunning school of its kind in town, brought together a fantastic mix of dance styles in aid of Breathrough Breast Cancer and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

They were joined by the glamorous movers of the Viva La Diva Showgirls.

It was also a night of celebration for 31 of Miss Julia’s classical ballet students – all of them passed their Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) exams, from primary through to grade 4.
