DEMONSTRATION OF DANCE 2017!

Our Demonstration of Dance at Heswall  Hall, Heswall was held on 31st March and 1st April 2017.  Everyone performed really well!! We showed our family and friends the different dance styles we can do including Ballet, Tap, Modern / Stage, Freestyle, Cheerleading, Musical Theatre including singing.  A great mix which, from the feedback received in the past, has kept our audiences entertained!  There were a lot of tunes, this time, from the 1970’s and everyone worked really hard.  The helpers backstage were amazing, getting the little ones ready for their next routine and keeping them entertained.  The Ladies, yet again, were absolutely fantastic and really went to town on their costumes!  Some from the Ladies Zumba class also took part again and I was very proud of them.  Congratulations to good friends Rachel Batchelor and Grace Glover who performed their choreography competition winning routine along with their dads.  Their performance was brilliant.  Everyone who helped to make this event a great success – thank you very much!!  With the proceeds of the ticket sales, second hand uniform sales and the raffle we raised £1000.00 for Ronald McDonald House at Arrowe Park Hospital.  Megan Owen from Ronald McDonald House came to watch our performance on the Friday night and told us of the work they do and what that money means for the House.  A further £250.00 was donated to Maggie’s at Clatterbridge Hospital and £250.00 to Windy Knowe Nursing Home in Oxton.  A grand total of £1500.00!!!!  Thank you everyone who purchased show & raffle tickets and made a donation to our second hand uniform and shoe box.  Trophies and medals were awarded for best attendance and a positive attitude to fellow dancers and the school ethos of encouragement and support.  Ceri Wright won our “Spirit of Dance” trophy.  Our next Demonstration is to be held 14th & 15th December 2018.  We are looking forward to it!  We also raised £173.00 at our Macmillan Coffee Morning in September 2016 and we took part in a nationwide Tapathon for Children in Need on 20th November 2016 so we have achieved amazing things and it is a wonderful opportunity to help other members of our community in this way.

CHOREOGRAPHY COMPETITION.

Our Choreography Competition was held on Saturday 12th November 2016. The winning performance, an excellent routine by good friends Rachel Batchelor and Grace Glover with a wonderful cameo appearance from their dads at the end was very entertaining and was performed at our Demonstration of Dance 2017.  Lucy & Sophie Johnson, were the senior section winners with the Crazy Quads, Rachel Batchelor, Grace Glover, Isabelle Naylor and Lucy Roberts, being Junior Section winners.  All entrants had worked very hard, including some of our youngest members. It was a lovely afternoon and we look forward to the next one which will be during summer term 2018. Perhaps some more adults would like to have a go next time! Many thanks to judges Elaine Holmes and Katie McCormack for the excellent job they did and gave their time for free. This allows us to give more to charity.  Second hand uniform and shoe sales also go towards our charity donations.  Thank you to everyone for your support.

TAPATHON FOR BBC’S CHILDREN IN NEED.

In November 2016 the school took part for the first time in a Nationwide Tapathon for Children in Need.  As a UK group we managed to raise a whopping £38,000.00 for this wonderful charity.  What was great?  The routine, the same for everyone all over the country, was a great one for everyone, including mums, dads and grandparents to join in.  We hope to take part in 2018, if they have one.
