Talented two hot foot it to stage schoolBy Natalie Slater

Talented children in Reading were treated to a workshop with two national performing stars.
Britain’s Got Talent’s Tobias Mead, made famous on last year’s series of the ITV show, popped in to Mo’s Stage School over the weekend to teach some of his moves to the pupils in Coley.
He was brought along by fellow talent show star Danyl Johnson, a finalist in last year’s X Factor, who used to be a teacher himself at the local performing arts school.
The pair entertained the children for almost three hours, teaching them routines and songs to perform for their parents.
Sammy Fonfre, co-owner of Mo’s, said: “The workshop with Tobias was absolutely brilliant. The kids had an amazing time and loved it.
“Dan had organised it which we were really grateful for. He used to work here and he always gives us so much of his time, the kids are so lucky – I’m not sure they realise how lucky sometimes.
“To have performers in for a workshop is such a valuable experience and teaches them a lot. To have people like Dan and Tobias come down, who they have seen on television, really excites and enthuses them.”
Danyl, from Arborfield, will be performing at the school’s cabaret show later this month. For tickets or for more information visit www.mosstageschool.com.
