Ex-student Connie begins her 2nd year as a vocalist at Haven Rockley Park in Poole, Dorset, this week!

 

She has also been offered the role of Dance Captain which she cannot wait to start.

 

Well done Connie!

 

Keep up the hard work and have a blast!

 

 

 

 

We are delighted to announce that our senior student Ella has been successful in gaining a place at Performers College in Essex on their BA Honours Musical Theatre and Dance course! 


Please join us in congratulating her on this amazing achievement.


We are over the moon for you Ella. We can't wait to see where your hard work ethic, talent and passion takes you in this new chapter.


 

 

 

Niamh, Ella, Marli and Miranda entered the RAPT Spring Online Competition 2021 and the results were released between the 19th and 21st of March! 


Here they are -


Niamh - Recall in the U/12 Commercial Set Routine Event!
Ella - Quarter-finalist in the U/16 Commercial Set Routine Event and quarter-finalist in U/14 Street Solos!
Marli - 6th in U/16 Street Solos!
Miranda - 3rd in the U/16 Commercial Set Routine Event and WINNER of the U/16 Street Solos! 


There were some big heats and the competition was full of talent. We saw our dancers challenging themselves with the set routines and pushing their ability to choreograph in their street solos.


We love to see them improve with every competition.


To see them getting recalls, making finals and achieving podium places is simply the cherry on top of the cake.


Well done to this awesome foursome!

 

 

 

 

We announced that we were putting on our very own talent contest, 'Ecco's Got Talent, Anything Goes!' on the 20th of January 2021. Entries started to come in over February and our independent adjudicator began marking them.

 

A big congratulations goes to Pippa for being crowned our overall winner on the 14th of March!


Pippa's entry was a beautiful performance of one of her own songs. To have written, sung and performed a song is so impressive. You can watch Pippa's entry in full here. 

 

Pippa has won a solo slot on our next show, a £20 gift voucher from Style Dance Designs and a winner's t-shirt designed by L&S Personalised Designs. 

 

Two additional awards were revealed for two entries that our adjudicator gave a special mention to when telling us their final decision. These went to Sam for Most Unique Act and the Macqueens for Most Entertaining Act.


Well done to everyone that entered. Our other finalists Ellie, Miranda, Ranae, Sofia and Ella will all be getting a little something when we are back at the studio. 

 

 

 

 

Shout out to Niamh, Alice and Ella who entered the 20/20 Promotions Online Freestyle Competition, March 6th-7th 2021!

Well done to Niamh and Ella for the recalls they received and semi finals they made and congratulations to Alice who bagged 2nd place in the U/16 Beginner Slow Solo category!

It was a tough one with some big sections but we still managed to come away with 2 fast finalists, 3 slow finalists and 2 street finalists! We had so many semi-finalists in each section who just missed out on the finals. This only makes us more determined for the next competition!

02/12/2020 Dancer Of The Decade Results

 

 

Some of our competitors entered a pioneering online freestyle event last week, the Anna Jones Dancer Of The Decade Competition. 


Dancers were assessed by 3 different judges on execution of choreography, technique, musicality, agility/complexity, projection/expression and given an overall score out of 100 by each judge which resulted in an average total score. Written feedback was provided for every dancer and scores were added to a global leader board.  


The standard was incredibly high but our competitors managed to achieve some fantastic scores and received some outstanding critiques! 


The results are now in and we cannot describe how proud we are.
