Attleborough youngsters show-off their best dance moves
Children had the chance to show-off their best dance moves at a special evening which brought together 170 youngsters from across the Attleborough area.
Hundreds of proud parents looked on during a Dance Showcase staged at Attleborough High School last Wednesday night where children performed routines they had learned at lunchtime and after-school lessons.
Former West Ham and Norwich City striker Dean Ashton opened the event, which was attended by children from Attleborough's High, Junior and Infant schools, as well as Hingham Primary School, Great Ellingham Primary School and Rocklands Primary School.
Organiser Levy Utku, a PE teacher at Attleborough High School, had sent dancers into the schools to teach the pupils routines over the last seven weeks.
He said the aim of the showcase was to give children an opportunity to take part in a sporting activity who may not enjoy traditional games such as football.

'This is something to offer to the children who may not like football or basketball because we are here for all. Dance is a sport - it's very important for co-ordination and for being fit,' he said.
Mr Utku, who had organised dance showcases in Norwich as part of a previous role at Notre Dame High School, said it was a 'fantastic' event.

'It was a first for Attleborough. It was fantastic - I could not believe my eyes. We had 300 parents and a few outside trying to get in. They all said it was just the best thing as it brings the community together and the children get to see the high school before coming here in a few years time,' he added.
