Young Norwich dancers put on a stunning outdoor show
Dancers kicked, jumped and were tossed into the air as a summer dance school took to the outside stage on Friday.
Performers from Slanted Dance put on a show outside the Forum to showcase the skills they had gained during the week while working with London choreographer Adrienne Hart.
The group spent six hours a day learning the contemporary routine with Adrienne who runs her own contemporary dance company.
Norwich-based Slanted dance holds a summer school every year for students who are on a break from dance college or who are looking to sharpen their skills.
Adreinne, who has taught dance in Russia, Norway and Berlin this year said: 'I have loved it. The dancers have really taken to the week and have worked their socks off. I'm really happy with the results.'

Sylvie Virani-Watson, 13, form Kinver Close said: 'I love dancing. I knew it would be a push but I wanted to improve. It has made me realise what it's like to be a professional dancer. My dancing is so much better and I have improved so much since Monday. The course has been really hard, it has been a challenge.'
Dance students Luke Baverstock and Amy Ollett, both 17, chose to join the school while on their summer break from City College Norwich.

Luke, who lives in Aylsham Road, said: 'I did this for the experience. Dance is something I am really passionate about and I take any opportunity to do it. This week I have seen myself changing as a dancer, it's what I was looking for. My dream is to perform in the West End.'
Amy, who lives in New Costessey said: 'It's not my normal style, I'm a hip hop dancer but it's good to try other styles. Both Luke and I felt that doing the course would help us prepare for returning to college. I have really enjoyed the week but it has been tiring. Adrienne has been brilliant. Meeting someone with different choreography inspires us.'
