Shoppers dazzled by dance displays

An Exmouth dance school brought the Magnolia Centre to a standstill when they performed their showstopping routines.
Members of Western Dance Force, including Girl Force, who supported Peter Andre at Crealy, danced for two hours in front of enthusiastic shoppers.
As well as watching the dancers, the crowd also took part in a raffle, and the school raised a total of £118 to help children from low income families attend dance competitions.
The school also had ten potential new members express an interest in joining.
Chief fundraiser, Emma Bowyer, said: “It was overwhelming really – the crowd all joined in, clapping along and giving the girls a great round of applause, and so many people were so generous.
“Everyone was so full of enthusiasm and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it all, although they were exhausted by the end.
“We even had three or four new girls who’d only started the day before, and we threw them in at the deep end really, but they were really good as well.”
The school is still looking for new recruits and is also looking for any local businesses that would be willing to help sponsor the dancers, whose next public performance will be at Exmouth Carnival.
