CWMBRAN based dance school Annette’s School of Dance have spent the past few months rehearsing for their performance with Strictly Come Dancing star Pasha Kovalev.

A number of the members of the school performed with the BBC TV star and his dance partner Anya Garnis during their current tour “The Magic of Hollywood”, at their performance in Maesteg Town Hall at the end of April.

School principle Annette Moore said she was very happy to be asked for the second year running to participate in Pasha’s tour.

“We performed in Brecon last year with Pasha and Anya, and we were very sorry that they weren’t appearing there again this year, but surprised and pleased to be asked to travel to Maesteg to dance with them again," she said.

The school performed two routines during the show, and were joined on-stage during the second dance by Pasha and Anya.

“The girls were thrilled to be on stage with Pasha and dance with him again,” added Ms Moore.
