THE glitz and glamour of TV's Strictly Come Dancing is coming to Huddersfield.

Some of the fashions found in the local dance scene are revealed in Ballroom Bliss, which opens at the Tolson Museum, Moldgreen, next Saturday.

The exhibition is the result of the fourth annual Kirklees Fashion project.

Ballroom was chosen as the theme, as local dance schools have profited from the interest shown in the TV programme.

The exhibition looks at the dance scene in Kirklees, from tea dances to top-level competitors.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is two outfits, worn by Melanie and Stuart Earnshaw, from Thornhill Lees.

They are rated 12th in the British Seniors dance category.

Melanie's dress, which she designed herself, is vivid yellow and decorated with rhinestones and lace.

The display also features quotes and photos from local people at dance schools, tea dances and social dances.

The Kirklees Fashion project, run by Kirklees Community History, gives local people the opportunity to choose objects and artefacts for the museum collections.

Collections assistant Katina Bill said: "It has been a dazzling experience. I have never seen so many rhinestones! The dresses are absolutely gorgeous."

* Ballroom Bliss is at the museum until Sunday, April 2. Entrance is free and the museum is open 11am to 5pm Monday to Friday and noon to 5pm Saturday and Sunday.
