What an amazing time we had at the Can You Dance? Regionals at the English Institute of Sport on the 12th of June! Niamh, Payton, Olivia, Joseph, Maddison, Miranda and Emma enjoyed incredible musical theatre, commercial and contemporary workshops delivered by top industry professionals. Shout out to - 


- Miranda for getting scouted for CYD? Dancer of the Year in Matt Nicholson's musical theatre workshop and winning an audition for D&B Academy of Performing Arts in Josie Lee's contemporary workshop. 


- Olivia for getting spotted in Kane Walcott's commercial workshop. 


- Joseph for winning an audition for Wilkes Academy in Josie Lee's contemporary workshop.


Well done to all our dancers who attended. The routines were challenging but you gave them your all, looked fab and made us proud. So nice to see you all enjoying the experience.

 

 

 

 

We took a small but mighty team of 7 to the Cliftons Promotions Ltd ADFP Freestyle Trophy Day at the Scunthorpe Baths Hall yesterday!

 

We had a bit of bad luck with injuries and illness but all in all it was a lovely day with some stunning dancing.

 

Safe to say Raeya has definitely caught the competition bug now. She did brilliantly for her first time making the semi in fast and getting a callback in slow! She did lots of judging in her notebook and didn't want to leave!

 

Lots of improvements all round. Now back to the studio to carry on working and progressing!

We've just received the fantastic news that Joseph has been offered a place at CAPA College on their Contemporary and Commercial Dance course.


600 dancers auditioned but only 200 places were available. To have been selected is therefore a noteworthy achievement and testament to Joseph's hard work and talent.


Please join us in congratulating him!

 

 

 

 

Now we have handed out the report forms we can share the happy news that all our dancers who took IDTA dance examinations back in December have passed with flying colours!


39 dancers entered examinations in Freestyle, Ballet and Theatre Craft. Among our amazing results we received 10 Honours and 10 Distinctions and there were many dancers who were only 1 or 2 marks away from these top grades. 


All students were given excellent feedback.


Well done everybody!

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations are in order for senior dancer Miranda who has received an IDTA Freestyle Scholarship nomination AND an IDTA Theatre Dance Scholarship as a result of her exceptional performance in her exams back in December! 


What an achievement! 


This is so well-deserved. We couldn't be prouder of this hard-working young lady. 

 

 

 

 

It was a super long in Scunthorpe for our comp squad on Sunday the 20th of February with big heats in lots of sections.

 

We had so many semi-finalists which was a real achievement at such a busy competition.

 

We nearly had 2 life losses among our finalists with Lilyia being two places away in fast solo and Ellie and Tianna being one away in pairs! 

 

With every competition we are getting closer to our goals. Well done everyone!

Good luck Luke!
