Talented dancers showed off their moves in a battle to become Birchwood High School's Young Choreographer of the Year.

This year at the Parsonage Lane secondary the theme was 'Prop Mania' and students had to use a chair, book, umbrella or box in their dance.

They performed for external judge Kennedy Hare, who starred in three seasons of E4 structured-reality TV series Made in Chelsea. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Dance.

The second scrutineer was Jenny Bater-Sinclair, founder, director and head tutor of dance company Hip Hop Pop. She has choreographed and performed in music videos, new artist promo concerts and touring theatre shows.

Stephanie Adams, Birchwood's head of dance, said: "All performances showed such energy and emotion, and the stories told through movement were completely breathtaking.

"The external judges had a really hard decision due to such a high standard of work, but in the end chose Aaron Shaw and Jess Hobday as the junior winner and Ruby Westbrook, Izzy Copper and Kara Watson as the senior winners."

Pupils from Years 7 to 10 took part and 23 students got through to the final dance-off.
