The TY Group had agreat workshop from Dance Concepts this week, where they learned some Dances to music from The Greatest Showman. Originally this was intended to be used as an act that the TYs could use in the Christmas Concert, bu unfortunately, due to Covid 19, the concert cannot go ahead again this year. However, the group got a chance to work up a sweat and demonstrate some excellent dancing talent!
