Barkers department store rolled out the red carpet to bring the glamour of Strictly Come Dancing to Northallerton yesterday.

The event launched the department store’s newly extended designer womenswear collection on the first floor.

Four dancers from North Leeds Dance Academy - Ping Liem and his partner Roxanne Youman and Ivan Silva Llamas and partner Hayley Davies -  performed the Cha-Cha, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble and Jive in the department store.

Ping and Roxanne are both professional dancers and latin dance champions, while Ivan and Hayley are also champions and dance on the international circuit.

Northallerton Paralympics rower Laurence Whiteley, who won a gold medal in Rio in the mixed double scull with partner Lauren Rowles, cut the ribbon to launch the opening of the new department.
