TV dancing sensation Darren Bennett was on hand to open a new dance school in Barlborough.

The Strictly Come Dancing star opened the new Lakeside dance studio at Barlborough Hall Preparatory School .

As well as judging a dance competition from the children he dazzled invited guests with a few moves of his own.

A school spokesman said it was great to have a visit from a local celebrity.

“He was really good, very encouraging and supportive of the kids. He was a really lovely celebrity to have to open our studio,” she said.

The dance studio was finished in August 2010 but damage caused by flooding around Christmas postponed the opening.
