HUNDREDS of youngsters have tumbled into the spotlight during a popular Vale of Clwyd show.

Earlier this month, crowds were wowed at Ruthin's John Ambrose Theatre, with over 300 gymnasts performing fantastic gymnastic tumbles and dances inspired by musicals.

Members of the Ruthin and Denbigh Gymnastics Club flew through the air with amazing twists and tumbles at this magical event, as well as performing show stopping dances and bar and beam routines.

The show received rave reviews from all that attended and it attracted more than 700 spectators.

The children, aged between five and 18 years, thoroughly enjoyed the performance as well as the lead up to the show, working very hard with the fantastic coaching team to co-ordinate their routines.

There is a lot of talent at the Ruthin and Denbigh Gymnastics Club, with both gymnasts and coaches taking leading roles to ensure a spectacular and successful event, all overseen by the head coach Tamsin Jones.

This event helped to increase the total raised for Cancer Research to £500, the charity that the children have busily been raising money for in recent weeks.

A £250 donation was also made to the PE department at Ysgol Brynhyfryd.

Another event included a bounce-a-thon at Denbigh Carnival, with all fundraising ventures being led and co-ordinated by gymnast and young leader Hollie Lloyd.

Ruthin and Denbigh Gymnastics Club welcome over 600 gymnasts between the ages of three and 18 years to classes at both Ruthin Leisure Centre and Clwyd House, in Denbigh, each week.

Over the next few weeks, the club will be running summer camp days for both members and non-members alike.

In addition, trial sessions will be available from September.
