What a night! Abingdon School teachers took to the stage on Thursday 3 December to wow an audience of pupils, fellow staff and friends with electrifying dance routines that they had been practising for weeks. Competing for the title of "Teachers Come Dancing Champions 2015" were Olly Deasy and Emily O'Doherty, Victoria Pradas and Andrew Hall, Victoria Griffiths and Nick Fieldhouse and Regina Engel-Hart and John Davies.
Victoria Griffiths, who teaches Physics at Abingdon said, “It was hard work but fun learning the routine - totally terrifying stepping out onto stage but a fabulous feeling of accomplishment and relief when it was over. Great camaraderie with other contestants.”

The judges (one of whom was Abingdon School Head, Miss Lusk) awarded scores, Strictly-style, and the cheers from the audience were also taken into account. The winners, with an impressive 49 points and a huge cheer, were Regina Engel-Hart and John Davies.
The audience was also entertained by guest dancers "Pulse", Nezete Onen, Rob Jeffreys and Tamsin Howells. The evening raised approximately £1000 for Blue Skye Thinking.
