A POP music backing dancer had a crew of his own in Witney on Saturday.

James Robinson, 30, has danced with the likes of One Direction, Jessie J, the Spice Girls, The Pussycat Dolls, The Saturdays, Tom Jones and Cliff Richard.

But he took centre stage at Henry Box School to teach about 100 children some of his hip hop and pop routines.

The seven to 16-year-olds from the West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts took part in a dance workshop at the school.

Londoner Mr Robinson said: “The energy and excitement was brilliant, and they all went home with smiles on their faces.

“A couple of kids were asking who I had danced for and who I was friends with. They were really excited. It was quite flattering really.

“They really liked that I had danced for One Direction and were asking if I had their phone numbers.”
