A FLEDGLING dance school has rewarded its students for a tremendous season.
Jemma Mudd, 25, only formed JLM Dance last year and now has 20 people on her books.
She is so proud of her students, who practice at the Victoria Park home of Hartlepool United, that she held a disco and a presentation event to hand out trophies.
More than 60 family and friends turned out for the event.
