Two Barnet schools will compete for a spot in a dance show in central London.

Friern Barnet School and Hendon School are among forty groups auditioning for Step LIVE! at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, in Angel.

The annual showcase will be performed on Saturday, July 5.

The show is held by Step into Dance, a partnership dance programme used in 200 schools and available in 32 London boroughs. The Barnet schools were selected to audition after impressing judges at a series of events.

The groups spent recent weeks honing their skills with their Step into Dance teachers, Gavin Vincent at Friern Barnet and Mahdi Gali at Hendon.
