TORBAY and South West of England Festival of Performing Arts is in full swing.

Now in its 73rd year, the event at the Palace Theatre in Palace Avenue, Paignton, is under the watchful eye of adjudicator Yasmin Taylor Hazzard, a graduate of Ballet Rambert.

The stage dance sections opened the 10 day festival from April 1.

A spokesman said: "During the first day of the Festival Yasmin gave helpful advice and comments and during the duets and trios noted the dancers working well together, with good connection, gorgeous arrangements and good attack and vitality making them most enjoyable to watch.

"The lyrical dancers gave the audience expression and feeling with lovely music and the classical Greek dance had lovely dance quality.
