Layton - who played the title role in Billy Elliott and also appeared in Thriller Live in London - recently appeared on the Norwich Theatre Royal stage in the UK tour of Matthew Bourne's New Adventures production of Lord of the Flies.

He returned to Norwich on Wednesday to take a masterclass for Passion Productions at city arts venue The Garage.

Scott Atkins, who is known as Scooby and runs Passion Productions, said it was great to have Layton give a masterclass and that about 42 people took part in the session.

He said they spent time doing warm up and technique training before learning a choreographed routine.
