MORE than 1200 students danced their hearts out yesterday at the annual Far North Coast Dance Festival held at Seagulls Club.

Students from Casino to Tweed Heads from kindergarten to year 12 were involved in the production.

Dance Festival co-ordinator and Kingscliff High School head teacher of cre- ative arts Robyn Ludeke said the festival was in its 20th year and gave students the chance to perform in a professional venue.

"It gives many students their first unforgettable taste of performance on a big stage for a big audience," she said.

"Teachers and parents have been working for weeks to make sure the show is as entertaining and superbly presented as ever."

Ms Ludeke said there was a huge range of dance styles, music and costuming in the festival. Today will be the final day with a matinee show at 11.30am for schools and a public performance at 7pm. Inquiries to Seagulls on 5536 0833.
