Stonehouse’s Itchy Feet Dance Crew will be performing its final act on July 28 with a curtain call befitting of a 41-year history in showbusiness.

Spanning two generations, the mum-and-daughter team of Diane Painter and Jaye Marshall have inspired hundreds of local people to take to the stage and enjoy dance.

Back in 1978, Diane had the idea of founding the group as a way of providing teaching and support to those wishing to dance competitively.

When daughter Jaye followed in her mum’s footsteps to become a talented young performer in her own right, she too joined the team, helping to encourage the next generation of dancers from Gloucestershire.

Jaye soon saw the potential for Itchy Feet to host its own talent show and in 2009, the inaugural Believe n’ Achieve took place which saw dancers from the age of five to 50 take part.

Now the time has come for Jaye to pursue her own theatrical career which has seen her perform in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony and several West End shows including The X Factor Musical.

But before Jaye heads for the bright lights of London and farewells her home county altogether, she has one last show to organise and she is looking for your help to raise funds for the costs involved producing the show.
