Hethersett dancers take top prize in Norwich competition judged by Brendan Cole

Hethersett dancers were crowned winners of a Norwich competition judged by Strictly Come Dancing Star, Brendan Cole.

Youngsters from Yvonne School of Dance received 40,000 public votes after competing in the Barclays Live Dance event held outside The Forum, Norwich.

The dance school delivered an all-girl retro tap dance performance on Saturday February 26 and beat off ten other local acts to win a �1,000 prize.

Yvonne Cutting, owner of the dance school, said: 'The money will go a long way to boost our fund raising. The girls will now have even better costumes in their upcoming shows.'
