Twisted Technique Dance School’s annual stage production at Mansfield Palace Theatre was packed with explosions of colour, drama and humour to routines choreographed around the theme of ‘Superheroes and Villains’.

Around 100 students from the age of five who attend the dance school in Sutton performed various dance styles incorporated into solos, duos and group performances.

Dance instructor Lee Ellis (27) said: “We’re really proud of all the students. This was our fifth end-of-year show and there’s been a huge improvement in quality each time.

“Both the superheroes and villains performances were amazing. I think the superheroes may have beaten the villains this time, but I would say that as I was on their side!”

Based on Outram Street, Twisted Technique, also known as the Claire Louise School of Dance, compete in competitions around the UK throughout the year. Instructor Claire-Louise Malpass (28), currently leads two successful disco freestyle teams, ages 7-11 and 11-20, with the older group crowned Nationwide champions for the second successive year.

Lee teaches Twisted Technique’s street dance team named ‘Skillmatic’, with members aged 9-17, who are International Dance Teachers Association regional champions and qualifiers for next year’s Nationwide Street Dance Championships.

He added: “Anybody who wants to learn dance are welcome along to our studio. It’s a great way to have fun and improve fitness and confidence.”
