The Claire Young Dance Academy (CDA) in Morpeth, Hunter Theatre Arts in Guide Post and Gladwin Ballet and Stage School in Ashington teamed up to create a dance show in celebration of the re-opening of the arts and dance, and bring in some money for the NHS.

The ‘One Night Only’ performance at the Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House raised more than £3,000 for the service.

Everyone involved felt it was appropriate to recognise the role it has played during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with two other incredible dance schools and come together as a team with a collective goal. I was so proud of everyone.”
