TO an "electric" 100-strong crowd, children at dance school Funkyds wowed the audience at the Galleria with an impressive mix of dance and freestyle moves.

At the event at the Hatfield shopping centre before Easter, 41 youngsters performed a funky dance together to songs including Feedback by Janet Jackson.

All displayed moves they had learned in the school's Saturday classes, based in Hatfield Swim Centre and run by dancer and children's TV presenter Kerry Newell and West End dancer Paul Allnutt.

Ms Newell, who currently presents CITV's Fun Song Factory with Aston from X Factor runners-up JLS, told the WHT: "The Funkyds dance display at the Galleria went amazingly well.

"Each class ranging from ages six to 16 all had their moment to shine on the dance floor.

"The response from the crowd was electric, they were so overwhelmed at what they saw, they asked if they could then see the dance again and to rapturous applause the kids performed the routine for the second time!"
