'Weird science' was the theme as more than 850 young people took to the stage for another successful Primary Dance Festival at the Magnet Leisure Centre.

The event is the Ascot & Maidenhead School Sport Partnership's (SSP) biggest participation event of the year and featured children from 25 primary schools across the area.

Performances took place in front of a sold-out audience at the centre, in Holmanleaze, over two days on Wednesday, February 12 and Thursday, February 13.

Schools had been rehearsing for weeks to prepare for the show, which featured class-sized groups up on stage in a co-ordinated efforts.

The performances included creative adaptations of the scientific theme, taking inspiration from everything from electricity and magnets to storms and evolution.

Emma Fitzgerald, partnership development manager for the SSP, said: "It went really, really well.

"I would say it was our best year so far and the kids really enjoyed themselves."

This year's event was once again sponsored by Thomson, Roddick & Laurie and preparations are already underway for next year's event.

A theme is yet to be decided, but it is hoped it will incorporate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.
