SLIDESHOW: Isle kids’ Wake and Shake triumphs

AN annual Wake and Shake festival involving most of the Isle’s primary schools was hosted by the South Axholme Academy.

The fun and innovative way of introducing pupils to the benefits of morning exercise, has developed over time into a showcase of individual dance routines.

South Axholme Academy children kickstarted the day with an exciting performance from their year 10 expressive arts class. They combined these efforts with a further montage of dance styles from the South Axholme Dance Club.

Young visitors warmed up nicely with the help of Fizzy Fox and South Axholme All Stars Cheerleaders. Epworth key stage one were the first to perform. Their routine to One Direction’s Live While We’re Young, was awarded ‘most enthusiastic performance’. Belton kept up the high standard performing to Maroon 5 and Moves like Jagger.

Next were key stage two teams Haxey, Belton, Westwoodside, Wroot and Epworth. Haxey dancers were awarded ‘most original moves’, and Wroot pupils, performing to Olly Murs’ Dance With Me Tonight were awarded ‘best team’ category. Lauren Wilson, currently South Axholme year none, supported Westwoodside, which received ‘most creative performance’. Epworth was praised for its Robbie Williams’ Candyman routine. And Belton finished off the festival by being awarded the category for ‘most in time’.
