2018 -2019 News

An extremely busy time with lots of fun, laughter, hard work, incredible performances and events and some outstanding achievements:

 

Many pupils were entered for Royal Academy of Dance Children’s Ballet Examinations up to and including Grade 8 and once again we maintained our 100% pass rate with ALL of our pupils gaining outstanding marks. We have also entered many pupils at Vocational level, Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Ballet Examinations and once again all of our students have gained outstanding marks.

There have been so many performance highlights that it is impossible to feature them all but wherever our pupils perform they are always complimented on the quality of their performances, their outstanding behaviour, enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism. Some of these performances include:

‘The Strictly Come Dancing Tour’ with Pasha Kovalev & his dancers, ‘Shine’ and ‘Spring Forward’ dance performances at The Octagon Theatre, 'Super Saturday' entertainment in The Quedam Shopping centre where 60 of our pupils entertained the shoppers with some great routines, the professional pantomime at The Octagon Theatre over the Christmas period, a fantastic insight for our pupils into the life of a performer, “Let’s Dance” with 110 of our pupils in The Somerset & Dorset Youth Dance Company, Yeovil Town Football club performance after the final game of the season, ‘Dance Sing Shine“ two sold out charity performances at The Octagon Theatre and Everybody Dance 2019, six spectacular performances featuring hundreds of talented local children and adults.

 

Our dancers have also entertained at numerous charity events, dinner dances, balls, fetes and concerts.

 

We are extremely proud of them all.
