Children and young people from across Epping Forest performed dance routines at a concert last night.

MOTIV8, organised and hosted by Epping Forest College with assistance from Epping Forest District Council, saw 14 groups of dancers, aged five to 18, take part at the venue in Borders Lane, Loughton.

Around 50 students from the college who were not on stage helped out behind the scenes.

Media students filmed the performance and will produce a DVD as part of a project.

Photography students also covered the event while beauty and fine art students helped with the theatrical make up and programme design.

Last night’s event was sold out and only a few tickets remain for tonight’s performance.
