1,500 take part in dance show
MORE than 1,500 Bristol children showcased their talents in one of the largest school dance shows in the country.
STAGES 2013 saw children and teenagers aged between five and 18 perform in front of their families and friends at the Colston Hall at the weekend. Forty-five Bristol schools spent months preparing choreography, choosing music and making costumes for their three minute performances.
Young people were also been involved in all aspects of show production, from compering to stage management and programme design.
For most children taking part, it was the first time they had performed on stage at a major event.

Schools were supported for the shows by Bristol City Council's Arts and Music Service.
The event's co-ordinator Shona Symons said: "All the schools involved really throw everything at making sure they have their routines and costumes totally nailed for performance day."
Broomhill Junior School took part for the first time this year.
The school's head teacher Colin Thompson said: "This is a great experience for our children. They have worked tremendously hard and I'm sure will have this memory with them for the rest of their lives."
Ashton Vale Primary School also took part for the first time.
Twelve pupils from the school performed a dance called Ashton Vale to the music of Little Mix.
The school's head teacher Vivien Champeney said: "We have been really fortunate to have had Daisy Rudduck working with us teaching street dance since September."
