Royston dancers set to appear in front of millions

DANCERS from a Royston school are set to face the music in a Sky1 talent show after wowing the programme’s producers.

The fleet-footed team, whose ages range from eight-to-45, from the Stephanie Prior School of Dancing will face a celebrity panel featuring a Pussycat Doll and Diversity star Ashley Banjo next Friday.

The dancers, known as the SPSD Rockers, reached this stage after performing a high energy rock’n’roll routine – which caused the show’s producers to rise to their feet as they applauded.

Their success was revealed the day before Tara Prior, the studio’s principal - who also danced with her students, opened her new studio in Lumen Road.

She said: “It was an amazing start to what was already set to be a fantastic weekend!”
