We all love Movie Week!  We were very pleased to be introduced to  “ANT-on-Man”, which we really enjoyed. It was fun seeing him fly around the different practice sessions (all while Craig filed his nails).

It included a performance to ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen which our younger students love dancing to in their classes. We think this episode will have been very popular with families, young children and Disney fans of all ages. 

Firstly, I really liked this week’s show. It’s really good to see Anton showing more of his personality at the judging table, as opposed to imitating Len. There was some great routines in this show, with lots of amazing storytelling and musicality making it very enjoyable to watch.
