This year's summer event was totally different to any of our previous years with a visit from Richard Marcel, the celebrity choreographer. He certainly knew how to get the party started. We had two excellent workshops with Richard and none of us will ever forget a very special evening.
Thanks to Adrian Forrester for some of the images.
