The Ballet of Cinderella- March 2022
After a break of three years we were able to put on our main School show this year. It saw 120 children take part from our youngest pre-schooler's (Age 2-3) to our graduating Year 13 students and advanced dancers.
It was a magical weekend and the children performed like true professionals! The next one in two years time can't come fast enough!
Magic Faraway Tree- March 2019
Our bi-annual show this year was "The Magic Faraway Tree".
"Our Magic Faraway Tree story commences with two friends discovering the tree at the bottom of their new garden. With great excitement, they climb up the tree into an opening in the clouds where they uncover different lands to explore. The beautiful Land of Nature is their first destination and at the end of the rainbow is The Land of Toys. They are a little hesitant of the Land of Spells, but their furry black cats reassure them that the Witches are friendly!
With three more lands to explore, first destination is The Land of Fame, where the performers insist on including the girls in their dance.
Climbing higher up takes them to the Land of Dreams, where sleepy children and Teddy bears exist hand in hand. Before their adventure ends our two friends find themselves in The land of Melodies"
