Norfolk-based Bollywood dance company wins national award
A Norfolk-based Bollywood dance business has scooped a national award for its dedication to teaching children.
At a pre-recorded and socially distant awards ceremony on November 27, Dereham-based Jayadance scooped the prestigious One Dance UK award for primary dance education, after hundreds of public nominations and votes.
The One Dance UK Awards are an annual celebration for people across the dance sector to celebrate people who have made an impact on the UK dance landscape.
Jayadance, which is owned by Tina Vallance, offers school workshops, birthday events, public classes and children's events.
Mrs Vallance said: "I can't believe we won, we could not have done it without the overwhelming support of the educational organisations of East Anglia, thank you to everyone from the bottom of my heart.
