Around 60 students and former students of Janet Seymour’s School of Theatre Dance presented two matinee performances of ‘A Christmas Collection’ to sell-out audiences, raising a grand total of £1600 for local good causes.
Opening and closing with the poem ‘The Night Before Christmas’, the show featured a mixture of ballet, tap and jazz dances to seasonal music, as well as individual songs and a touch of humour from the well known Joyce Grenfell monologue ‘Nativity’.From the tiniest 3 and 4 year old ballerinas in tiaras and turquoise tutus to the more senior performers the show was a great success, sending the audiences home well and truly full of the Christmas spirit.
Tutor Janet Seymour said, "It was so lovely to have former students come back to sing or recite poetry and wonderful to have lots of help with choreography from former student, now qualified dance teacher, Charlotte Porter."
The profit from the shows has now been divided between The Old School House Arts Centre in Leyburn and Reeth and Gunnerside School who intend to put the money towards residential visits for their pupils.

Rural Arts, North Yorkshire Youth and Youth Club volunteer Yolanda Richards teamed up to deliver a fun filled youth session for 11 - 18 year olds.
To the team’s delight, fourteen highly enthusiastic and friendly young people attended and had lots of fun creating their very own cardboard SLR cameras!
Poppy and Jayne from Rural Arts said "We both had a wonderful time! It was lovely to see everyone enjoying themselves in the arts and craft activities and we hope more will be coming, thank you for having us".
After some very tasty cake which one of the young people had made especially for the session, the group headed outside into the sunshine on the village green to get involved in some fun drama activities.
To follow on from this successful session a new youth club for 11 - 16 year olds has begun on alternate Thursday evenings.
