TALENTED Hampshire youngsters twisted and twirled as they took part in a special dance workshop.

Hazel Wood Infant School in Totton staged the event for gifted children in the area and brought along Hayley Warman-Johnston from Bustagroove Dance School to lead the session.

Youngsters from Copythorne, Netley Marsh, Calmore, Eling and Marchwood were among those who joined the fun.

And at the end of the day, they displayed the new skills they had learned in a performance for their parents.

The energetic dance event coincided with the Daily Echo’s Beat the Bulge campaign – aimed at encouraging local people to get fitter and eat better.
