And more than 40 youngsters who took part proved they do have talent as judges hailed the extremely high standard.

Two members of Hartlepool’s hip hop kings Ruff Diamond joined the school’s executive headteacher Julie Deville and Mark Tilling, the headteacher of High Tunstall College of Science, where the competition was held, on the judges panel.

And after deliberations over the dozens of top performances, they announced Year 5 tap dancer Emile Rasul as the winner.

Year 6 pupil and talented ballet dancer Kizzy Nixon was named as the runner-up while third place went to dance group Street Chaos, made up of Year 6 pupils Charly Wilson, Chloe Wallace, Kacey Menzies, Alexandra Kaey-Bolton and Jessica Hecker.

Audrey Brahimi, deputy headteacher at Eldon Grove, said: “It was a fantastic event once again.

“We had a real variety of performances and the standard was extremely high.

“To have more than 40 children taking part was 
excellent.”
