YOUNGSTERS at a school near Pershore were treated to a visit by a professional dancer who specialises in contemporary and traditional multi-cultural song and dance.

Nancy Roberts, a dancer based in London, visited Defford-cum-Besford CE First School on Tuesday, April 1.

Using her experiences of living, working and touring in South Africa, Eastern and Western Africa with a dance troupe, to inspire the children, she brought a taste of African culture to life in the classroom.

Andrea Bailey, headteacher, said: "The children were treated to an afternoon of South African Song and Dance, including a traditional Zulu celebration dance, a Gumboot dance performed in wellies and a modern day South African hip-hop dance.

"The whole school participated and it was an incredible afternoon, rounded off with a performance to parents.

"We are very grateful to Mr James Clutterbuck of WHC Hire Service, based in Worcester and Tewksbury, for sponsoring this event."
