Hip hop meets Morris dancing...
YOUNGSTERS got to fuse folk dance with hip-hop as they enjoyed a series of workshops with expert performers.
Ahead of their show at the Colston Hall next month, members of The Lock In visited Stoke Bishop C of E Primary School yesterday.
After wowing the whole school with a performance in the morning, about 90 children, aged seven to 11, got to learn and perform a wide range of dance moves in the afternoon.
In a clash of styles, the children not only got to grips with hip-hop grooves, but also sword, clog and traditional Morris dancing.

Year Four teacher Jacqui Stevens said: "The children really enjoyed it – it was quite an experience for them.
"Workshops like this teach them teamwork, the value of knowing the music, being active and being creative. For many it was just a chance to try something new and enjoyable."
The Lock In will perform at Colston Hall 1 on February 21, at 7.30pm. Tickets £16.50, £15 for concessions.
A spokeswoman for The Lock In said: "The UK's number one folk and hip hop dance show comes to Colston Hall, giving visitors the chance to witness some fast-paced, innovative and show-stopping performances that combines the most traditional forms of dance with modern styles.
"The Lock In sees a group of street dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub, where a clash of cultures turns into a dynamic and athletic dance floor stand-off.
"Sword dances are performed with snooker-cues, pub bouncers dance the Morris and B-boys flirt with clog girls, while house band The Demon Barbers mix English folk music with hip hop, house, funk and ska and drum and bass along the way."
