A television and West End star put smiles on faces and new moves on the dancefloor with a visit to a town studio.

Starlight Dance welcomed So You Think You Can Dance star Ryan Jenkins to its Kettering studios on Sunday.

Mr Jenkins has worked on several West End shows and the hit film Phantom of the Opera. He taught a workshop to the infant, junior and senior dancers.

The visit came about after the school won a national competition to appear in Bobby Dazzlers at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the West End on Sunday.

Starlight Dance founder Jacc Batch said: “A big thank you to Ryan Jenkins. Our dancers all loved their workshops and he was an inspiration to us all. We look forward to working with him again.”
