Children and teenagers entertained theatre-goers with a show of 'pure dance' on a Cromer landmark this weekend.

Let's Dance 2013 was held at the Pavilion Theatre on the town pier on last night and will be performed again tonight at 7.30pm and tomorrow at 2.30pm.

It includes 150 students aged between three and 18 from Marlene's School of Dancing on Louden Road, Cromer, and is the 10th bi-annual show put on by the long-running school.

Marlene Duniam, who started the school 23 years ago after moving from London, said: 'It is the biggest dance show that Cromer Pier has. It gives the children the experience of working in a professional theatre.

'It gives them confidence to perform in front of their family and friends. It gives them such a buzz.'

She added a lot of her students have changed for the better because of the passion they learn from taking part in the performance.

But Mrs Duniam said putting the show together was no mean feat.
