Gastrells Dancers Shine at Cheltenham Town Hall


Once again you amazing children have blown me away! I really couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of you, all your hard work and effort in dance club and the numerous break and lunch time practises really did pay off tonight. You were all professional, in time with each other and the music, you enjoyed yourself and all danced with such energy, personality and character and although I may be biased, I think you stole the show!

A huge thank you must go to Mrs Smith for putting in so much time and effort and bringing the whole dance together, we are extremely fortunate to have someone as dedicated and talented as you at Gastrells.
