MUSIC and movement came together at the Torch Theatre this weekend, for the D18 dance festival.

A diverse range of dancers shared their skills at workshops and practice sessions, from hip hop and popping and locking to contemporary and aerial.

Craft sessions, street dance and laughter yoga were also on offer, meaning there was something for everyone.

After the morning sessions, soloists and groups from Pembrokeshire and beyond showed off their moves on stage, cartwheeling and contorting to the latest pop hits, urban tracks and more.

Hijinx theatre group - which is made up of adults with learning difficulties - received huge applause for their fierce nine-minute Lion King routine, while soloist Sean Wladacz stunned with his seemingly limitless flexibility, strength, and moving musicality.

Saturday's live shop kicked off with a flash of scarlet, thanks to the gravity-defying moves of aerial artist Karen Fuhrman, who travelled all the way from America for her performance.

Milford Haven School performed an energetic routine, and Fusion Elite from Cardiff dealt with the growing dangers of cyber bullying in their well-crafted piece.

On Sunday, Vibz, Amethyst Dance and St Clears Kids were among those performing in the afternoon show.

Add to the mix a healthy dose of flossing, graffiti workshops and a pumping dance-off finale, and an amazing weekend was had all round.

The D dance festivals are organised by Arts Care Gofal Care in partnership with the Torch Theatre.
