A dance school will pay tribute to the big screen when it holds a night of entertainment.

JLM Dance from Hartlepool is planning the event on Saturday, July 4, at the Hartlepool Corporation Club.

The students have been working really hard to finish of their new dances and know that its going to be the best show and evening we have ever hosted

School owner Jemma Mudd said: “The evening will consist of entertaining family and friends of the students to a movie themed dancing show.”

There’ll be tributes to songs from movies including Slumdog Millionaire and Armageddon.”

Jemma said most of the dance school’s students would be taking part, from toddlers to adults. There will also be a presentation of awards as well as honours handed out at a movie-themed awards-style ceremony.

“During the evening we will be having a raffle and other funding activities to help raise more money to our dancing fund,” said Jemma.

She said the money would help to pay for the students tickets to national competitions at Blackpool in October.

“We have already had some amazing donations but any more would be appreciated.”

She said the sellout shows that the club has held has meant it has had to move to bigger venues for its performances. Jemma said it “shows how well the school is growing and the quality of the dancing is improving.

“All the students are looking forward to the evening performing in the show and receiving their awards as well as a few other movie treats such as a popcorn machine and candy floss machine.

“The students have been working really hard to finish of their new dances and know that its going to be the best show and evening we have ever hosted.”

It’s been a busy time for JLM which recently won dozens of trophies at the Whitby Pavilion United Kingdom Association Dance Contest.

Twenty one competitors travelled to Whitby and they brought back 32 trophies between them.

Among the many highlights were first places for Phil Ansel and Kirby Hogg, runners-up spots for Nicola Ngor, Evan Flounders, and Sienna Maddison; and third spots for Evan, Kirby, Jessica Franklin, Cameron Gerits, Vikki Pounder and Ebony Oliver.

Other top placings were also achieved by Sienna Douglas-Allison, Freya Pounder, Shannon Winship, Caitlin Kenny, Iona Heasman, Daisy Allen, Carmen Hann, Carol Hogg, Daisy Allen, and Debbie Ansell.

The success were achieved in a huge range of categories and in age ranges from six years old to 45 years.
