Speaking about the dance camp, sports development co-ordinator Alex le Guevel said: “Throughout the week the children will be rehearsing. They will put together their own dance routine and also design t-shirts.

“Then on Friday we will invite all the parents in to see the final performance. There will be a mix of street and break dancing and a bit of everything. It’s up to the children what they want to do.”

Nathan Maxwell, who is helping to run the basketball camp, said: “Monday was a bit of an introduction because a lot of the youngsters have never played basketball before.

“Hopefully they will continue to play when the camp finishes. They are also learning the key elements of team work and it’s nice to see a mix of girls and boys.”

Next week there will be tennis and arts and crafts at the leisure centre. For more details visit www.everyoneactive.com.
