‘Scilly Come Dancing’ Hits Islands’ School This Thursday

Islanders will be able to view school pupils showing off their dance moves in a charity fundraiser tomorrow night.

The Student Council of the Five Islands School has arranged a ‘Scilly Come Dancing’ event.

And following the hit TV format, a panel of judges including school Head Teacher Linda Todd, will score the skills being displayed on the performance hall floor.

But the style of dancing won’t be strictly ballroom. There’ll be breakdancing, hip-hop and acrobatics, rather than foxtrots and the waltz.

Lucy Twynham is one of the organisers. Lucy says there’ll be plenty of dancers and someone from the audience will get the chance to be a judge. They’ll be selected by a raffle.

But most of the dancers are girls, she says, as the lads weren’t so keen to strut their stuff.

Zoe Jenkins says there’ll be prizes for the best performers, with trophies designed by Miss Turner for the top three acts.

Tania Bradford says the admission price and the raffle ticket sales of event will raise cash for the ‘School in a Bag’ charity. This provides education essentials to underprivileged children.

The two-hour show starts at 6.30pm and tickets are £1 for children and £2 for adults. They’ll be available on the door at school on Thursday evening.
