2017 Event

Our last event for 2017 was our popular annual show on the 5th dress rehearsal,  and two performances on the 6th May 2017 at The Joseph Rowntree's Theatre. With all the dance styles we now offer these shows are a spectacular event! All our shows are for Charity.  All new pupils are welcome to take part. 


What a fabulous show at Joseph Rowntree Theatre. I am so proud of each and everyone of you! Many thanks to all who helped especially the dressers for your patience. The children/dancers were all amazing and you have all worked so hard. We raised £2,219.22 for Ralph Butterfield school, whom were thrilled by the amount raised for an enhanced garden area for children to play. I am feeling so proud, of our amazing, talented and happy children. Well done all.
