1980 Eleanor Roxburgh’s Dancers

Blantyre’s talented dancers of 1980. This is Eleanor Roxburgh’s dance class at their annual show in EK’s Village Theatre. The young dancers entertained proud parents and grandparents in a packed venue, showing off a variety of dance styles.

This was the second year running the dancers held their show in that venue. I have a memory going to see my sister in this show and seeing various girls from school up on stage too.
