YOUNGSTERS followed in the footsteps of dancing genius Michael Jackson when they were learnt some smooth moonwalk moves.

The group of eight to 12-year-olds hit the dancefloor at the Spring Arts and Heritage Centre in Havant.

It was one of several workshops on offer during the school half-term to give children a taste of the arts.

Lyn Unsworth, education officer at the centre who witnessed the action, said: ‘The back-sliding was out of this world.

‘All the children learned the illusion of gliding backwards and had great fun.’

Darren Corps, marketing officer, said he hoped to seeing some of the youngsters and boys back at the centre soon.

He said: ‘We try to offer a range of different activities for young people to encourage them to get involved in the arts, whether that is through dance or learning music.

‘It’s great to have them during half-term but it would be even better if they came back for our after school workshops.

‘There is so much opportunity here to showcase talent and even perform alongside professional artists.’
