Skippers Hill’s Maypole Dancers Perform Live on National Television

Posted on: 27 Apr 2017

Pupils from Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School in Mayfield, East Sussex recently made an appearance on ITV’s This Morning showcasing their talents at maypole dancing.

The troupe of girls from the school’s Maypole Dancing Group aged 8 to 13, performed live as part of the programme’s St George’s Day activities and also enjoyed a look behind the scenes at the television studios in London’s South Bank. The girls were thrilled to be invited into the studio to meet pop group Steps and to dance along to their new single, joining the This Morning presenters behind the famous sofa.

Headmaster, Mark Hammond, said: “Maypole dancing has long been a tradition at Skippers and indeed in Mayfield and Five Ashes. It was a pleasure to see each individual perform so well under the pressure of live TV, especially as they hadn’t yet started rehearsals for this years’ Mayfair! We are very proud that they represented the local community so well and were able to meet some pop stars to boot!”
