Kollection, which was set up by 23-year-old Jade Thomas, held the event for 15-year-old member Liberty Newbury, who as part of a school venture is set to volunteer in Cambodia.

It involved numerous dance groups putting on a show with styles ranging from hip-hop and line dancing to ballet and break dancing.

Following the event at Oaklands College, which saw 70 people attend, Jade told the WHT: “The event was a huge success with a number of dance schools from all over Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire turned up to take part in.
