FUNKY music and dance was enjoyed by dozens of young children who strutted their talents on the Kings Theatre stage.

The youngsters enjoyed workshops in ballet, music and a range of instruments, courtesy of theatre staff members and local professionals.

Sonia Vidal, education co-ordinator at the Southsea venue, said: ‘It was a fantastic day and all the youngsters and their families had lots of fun.

‘Many of them have seen productions at the Kings Theatre so it was a real treat to be performing on stage.

‘By the looks of things, I do think there were a lot of budding dancers and musicians who showed up on the day - and who knows, maybe one day in the future they will be performing as professionals on our stage.’

Mrs Vidal, who organised the event, said the idea to put on the pre-school event was inspired by her her two-year-old son Victor who loves visiting the theatre and playing on the stage.

She said: ‘This is the third time we’ve put on the event, but because it has been such a big success we’re hoping to be able to do it every month.’
