A group of adults with learning difficulties are dancing their way to success.

The Magpie Movers was set up six months ago to allow the students to show off their dance skills and get out and about in Calderdale.

The group have performed at a number of residential care homes and festivals recently and are performing at the Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd Christmas Light ceremonies.

They use a variety of props in their performances, including umbrellas and try to incorprate all types of dance genres into their shows like ballet, tap and jazz.
