Dance students from a Northampton theatre school will be hoping for a pitch perfect performance when they provide half-time entertainment at Wembley.

Theatretrain pupils will dance on the sidelines of London’s Wembley Stadium to an audience of over 40,000 people this Easter.

The pupils, aged 6-18, perform at half-time during the Saracens-Harlequins clash at Wembley, alongside X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

Jenny Sheehan and Sian Baugh recently took over the reins at the part-time performing arts school, after teaching drama and dance respectively for over a decade.

Sian said: “We wanted to make sure our students are given lots of opportunity to perform and showcase their skills, so to do that at such an iconic venue as Wembley is really exciting - they are really looking forward to it.”

Jenny added: “We’ve performed at the O2 and Royal Albert Hall, as well as locally, and these all help our students to grow in confidence and develop teamwork, which is just as valuable as singing, dancing and acting.”
