Students from the Rhythm and Shoes Dance Academy visited Dance City in Newcastle to work with choreographer Emily Nicholson at the weekend.
The students looked at different contemporary dance practitioners and created their own pieces.
Louise Richmond, from the academy, said: “The students were amazingly creative and delivered a fantastic performance that was then presented to family members in the theatre at Dance City.
“It was commented by staff at Dance City how lovely all of our students are and how well they all worked together.
“It’s wonderful to be able to offer our students such experiences, being able to work with other professionals and visit different places to give our students a wide variety of experiences centred around their passion to dance.
“It’s also hugely beneficial for our older pupils, many of whom have or will be taking GCSE dance and will perhaps go on to study dance at a higher level.”
