The week-long show kicked off last night and will run until Thursday, followed by two nights of the Stringer Dance Show on Friday and Saturday.

This year a record number of schools and groups are entering with performers from 75 schools, colleges and dance clubs showing their moves.

By the end of the week more than 2,500 dancers will have performed across four sold-out nights in what organisers have dubbed the largest schools dance show in the country.

Organiser Andy Marchant said: “You can expect the usual energy and enthusiasm in this vibrant and fantastic event.

“To be able to hold it in such a prestigious place as the Dome too makes it extra special.

“It really is nationally renowned as one of the best and one that many try to emulate, but nobody’s quite got there yet.”

Yesterday pupils from Balfour Primary School, Fairlight Primary School, Dorothy Stringer School, Stanford All Stars, St Marks Church of England School, Coldean Primary School, Saltdean Primary School, Cottesmore St Marys Primary School, St Paul’s Church of England School, Carlton Hill Primary School, RAW Boys Contemporary Dance Group, Hove Park School, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Streetsteps through City Academy Whitehawk, Streetfunk – Unique, Portslade Aldridge Community Academy and City College Brighton and Hove took to the stage to wow proud teachers, parents and guests with specially choreographed dance routines.

The entrants range from four-year-old infant school pupils to university students with performances starting each night at 7pm.

The Argus will be publishing pictures from each performance and hundreds of photos are available to purchase by phoning 01273 544371.

I went to this last night and it was fab.

The listing of schools who took part in this article is completely wrong.

The performance from the Varndean children (not a school I have any connection with by the way) was stunning. A big well done!
