STAGECOACH Ealing's dance troupe made it to the finals of the Jack Petchey Glee Club Challenge.

Though they did not win gold, they gained an invaluable experience they will cherish for life.

They amazed the audience with their set pieces from Run Boy Run and a Tina Turner Tribute, a creation by their teacher Jess McShane. 

The Glee Club Challenge is a music and dance initiative for the youth of London and Essex.

The grand final showcases groups that have undergone rigorous training sessions with industry experts.

Valerie Weyland, principal of Stagecoach Ealing, said: "They worked so hard and did so well to reach the grand final - their pieces are breathtaking."

In the 36 years since launching, Stagecoach Performing Arts has developed more than a million students.
