HAVING enjoyed their Christmas break, the Warrington Guardian-sponsored dance pair of Annabell Harman and Mike Manning are preparing for their next outing.

While their Liverpool studio was closed over the festive period the Conservative Club in Penketh let them use their dance floor, where they concentrated on improving technique, foot work and general stamina ahead of their next competition in Blackpool on Saturday.

Both are back to college and school this week, completing course work and revision for current exams, while Michael is also in rehearsals at Stagepro for their annual show at the Parr Hall on January 18.
