Pasha’s show Let’s Dance the Night away is coming to the Gordon Craig Theatre for two nights, Wednesday and Thursday – and pupils from Letchworth-based Dance Steps Academy are among those performing alongside him.

It’s not the first time the pupils, aged from 10 to 17, have performed with Pasha – and principal Sarah Johnson, who has run Dance Steps for 26 years, is thrilled.

She said: “Everyone is so excited – when we met Pasha at the last show he was so complimentary of the school. We can’t wait to perform with him again.

“I was asked to provide two casts for the show, which has meant a lot of rehearsals – but it’s been great as it’s meant giving more students the opportunity to perform in this professional show with Pasha.”
