The Move It Dance Show ended on a high this year at Olympia. I only managed to go to the last day of the event and it had an action-packed programme of performances, dance classes and seminars.
Move It showcased the best dance talent and gave people the opportunity to get involved in dance.
I tried the hip hop class from London Dance Studio and although I struggled to remember the choreography it was great fun and our instructor was excellent.
Later on I saw the performances on the main stage including the Scatter Dance Company at The Place who had put together an energetic piece.
Highlights from the stage were also a pas de deux from Alleviate Dance who were runners up on Sky1’s Got To Dance and a fun piece from Etta Ermini Dance Theatre combining capoeira-style moves with food preparation.
It was good to see a massage area at the event sponsored by Cloud 9, a mobile spa with its own inflatable dome.
Ballet fans were also in for a treat as ballerina Darcey Bussell CBE made an appearance on the show.
