LAC Day 10: Henley Town Hall

JUST under 70 children sang and danced at Henley town hall on the tenth night of this year's Living Advent Calendar.

JUST under 70 children sang and danced at Henley town hall on the tenth night of this year's Living Advent Calendar.

More than 150 parents and relatives packed into the main hall for the performance by the Rupert House School choir and three dance groups led by Henley instructor Stephanie Maxwell.

All seats were taken before it started at 6.15pm and people were standing several rows deep at the back.

First on were singers from the independent prep school in Bell Street, Henley, who sang four Christmas songs: Love Shone Down, Little Drummer Boy, Candlelight Carol and You Raise Me Up.

Ms Maxwell's street dance crew then performed a routine to Mariah Carey's Santa Claus Is Coming To Town before the Rupert House dance crew, whom she also teaches, danced to a modern arrangement of Hark The Herald Angels Sing.

Finally, the two groups danced alongside Steph's Dancing Divas and Dudes, some of whom were as young as three, to Have A Very (Very, Very) Merry Christmas.

Ms Maxwell said it had been a "fantastic" evening and she was "very proud" of the children.

A full report will appear in next week's Henley Standard and a video of the evening will appear on the Standard's website within the next few days.
