Dancers from a Dereham high school have made it through to two national finals after impressing in two high level competitions.
The Obsidian dance group from Neatherd High School won the opportunity to perform at the O2 in London and then in Liverpool.
Under the guidance of teachers Rachael Harris and Debbie Smith, the group won the senior category in the Make Your Move competition in London - with choreography based on how the Red Cross charity changes people's lives.
Their dance represented the work the Red Cross does for refugees. The O2 final will take place on July 2.
They then took part in Can You Dance at UEA, completing a shorter version of their dance, again winning the seniors competition and earning them the trip to Liverpool for another final.
Dancer Beth Payton said: 'We are very proud of our accomplishments and have fingers crossed for the finals of both competitions.'
