Seven students from the Janet Seymour School of Theatre Dance travelled to Frankfurt during the Easter holidays to experience a week of different dance styles including hip hop, break dance and circus skills.

The students stayed with families of the German students from Sim Aktel’s School of Dance and worked together during the week.

Sim is a former pupil of Janet’s who eventually took over her school when Janet moved back to England.

The two tutors have been arranging annual exchanges for the last ten years, alternating between Frankfurt and Swaledale, with several of the young dancers becoming close friends with their exchange partners.
