MORE than 200 young people from across the county strutted their stuff at the third annual Lancashire Youth Dance Festival last weekend.

The two-day festival, presented by Ludus Dance and The Dukes, saw Lancaster become the county’s dance capital, as young people took to the stage and streets performing a range of styles including Bollywood and jazz.

Each day, workshops took place teaching a different form of dance, and the dancers were also given the chance to learn how to make a dance film.

Two evenings of exciting new dance performances and films were then shared with audiences at evening shows on both nights.
