Students from other schools joined Debden Park performers for the Rise Dance Festival at Debden Park High School.
Joining Debden Park students were the Hereward Funksters - from Hereward Primary School - and Dance 21 who had the audience full of happy tears as they signed to 'This is Me' from 'The Greatest Showman'.
Students from Hylands School, near Chelmsford, performed some of their BTEC dance pieces while Alderton Primary School children lit up the stage with their energetic and groovy moves.
Debden Park students performed some of their Key Stage 3 dance club performances.
Teacher of Dance Lauren Mason said: "For some of the students this was their first time on stage but they were naturals and had the audience roaring with applause at the end of each piece."
The dance pieces were choreographed by Debden Park dance ambassadors Shay Samuels, Macy Wise and Jaheem Moreno who also performed their BTEC Dance piece 'Missing You'.
More than 300 guests watched the show.
Lauren added: "This is an annual event for all ages and abilities in Dance and it is always a triumph!
"Well done to all those involved in making this year's festival such a success."
