The stage at one of the world’s leading dance theatres beckons for a group of talented youngsters from Rugby. Members of the Christine Anderson Theatre School will be dancing on Sunday at the Sadler’s Wells theatre in London. The young dancers have been invited to take some of the dances that they have been rehearsing for their annual show in December at Rugby Theatre down to London to perform. Sue Smith from CATS said: “For some of these kids it will be their West End debut, and as you can imagine they are so excited.” The dance school, in Kingsley Avenue, was set up in 1972, with students having performed in Germany, France, California and Disneyland in Florida. Sadler’s Wells is London’s second-oldest theatre, having been established in 1683. It describes itself as “the national theatre for contemporary dance” and the home of the National Youth Dance Company. The above picture shows the youngsters in costume for a dance called ‘Joyful, Joyful’, which they will be performing at Sadler’s Wells.
