Well done to Performing Arts student Evie who performed with Jack Whitehall at Sheffield Arena on the 1st December 19!!!

We were very proud to hear that during rehearsals Evie was picked out to be the dance captain for the performance!

 

 

 

 

Good look to Connie who is starring in Chessington World of Adventures Christmas 2019 show, 'The Gruffalo And Stick Man Christmas Groove' this festive season! We know you will be fabulous!

 

 

 

 

Thank you to Karen Carey, Dance Tutor from Hillsborough College, for her workshop on the 26th September 19 for Ecco students considering dance at BTEC, A Level or GCSE level. It was a fantastic session! Well done to the hardworking students who took part.

 

 

 

 

The comp crew were competing in Sheffield at the South Yorkshire County Championships on the 10th November 19!

It was another successful day for our dancers with every dancer bringing home at least one trophy with a few just missing out on life losses! 

 

Keep up the hard work everyone, we've still got one more competition to go in December! Let's see if we can top our results!

This group of talented dancers did Ecco proud performing in 'Memories Are Made of This' at Penistone Paramount on Friday 1st November 19. We've received so much amazing feedback about them. Well done all!

 

 

 

 

 

Amanda and Helen have been left speechless (for once in their life!) after the performance of the Ecco competition crew at the Golden Championships in Skegness October 18th-20th 2019!

 

There was an incredibly high standard as expected, so as the results kept coming in this weekend we shed tears, jumped for joy and cheered at the top of our voices!

 

We never imagined we would be coming away with winners and life losses!

 

Not only did we achieve the following results, we had an overwhelming amount of recalls and so many semi-finalists who came so close and just missed out.

 

Results aside, we are just so so proud of how all our dancers performed this weekend.

 

Each and every dancer upped their game dancing as we've never seen them dance before.

We managed to get finalists in every event AND each child made a final!

 

Overall we came home with 32 trophies, 13 top 3 places and 7 x 1st places for our dancers.

 

All that's left to say is thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our dancers who put Ecco in the spotlight this weekend and to their parents for their support and dedication to the school! Mums - you did the kids proud with your parent team.

What a great day in Coalville the competition squad had on the 22nd September 19! The support for each other was fantastic and we had some fantastic results to match!

 

Special shout out to:

- Those that danced together that don't normally dance together or made up a routine in 10 minutes so they could! We love how all our dancers can dance with each other and dance well!

- Menna for doing so well at her first competition 

- Dance moms Diane and Rachael for being the best sports and doing Parent Street Pairs and coming 3rd after having to do a dance on! The kids loved it.

What a busy competition for our comp squad in Nottingham on the 15th September 19 with over 500 dancers and 29 schools in attendance! Some sections had 6 heats in! It was a tough day and a high standard but everyone danced their socks off and we got recalls, semi-finalists and finalists.

 

Regardless of results we couldn't be happier with the way some of you danced yesterday so well done! With another competition next Sunday and our weekend festival less than 5 weeks away the only way is up!

A massive well done to Ecco's Eve for making it into Chesterfield's pantomime 'Jack and the Beanstalk' 2019-2020 and Joseph for making it into 'Sleeping Beauty' 2019-2020 at Rotherham Civic Theatre.

 

We also had Pippa make it into the reserves at Rotherham and Niamh make it into the reserves at Doncaster Cast Theatre in 'Cinderella.'

 

Well done everyone! 

 

 

 

 

It was an incredibly hot day for our competitors in Lincoln 4th August 19 but they managed to battle through the heat to come away with some fantastic results!

We very very nearly came away with 4 lives lost!

Lots of hard work for our September competitions now and maybe we will get those lives and more lost then!

Some of our dancers had an amazing time at the Can You Dance? Summer Intensive in Sheffield 1st-2nd August 19!

Well done to Elysia, Miranda, Maddison and Joseph who were picked out to perform in some of the select groups at the end of the workshops. Here are our dancers with the incredible Ricky Jinks!

 

 

 

 

What a day our competitors had in Immingham on the 21st July 19!

We had 8 wins, 20 top 3 places and to top it all off we brought home a new Fast Solo Champ! Well done Lilyia!

We very nearly had 2 more life losses too, so close! This is certainly shaping up to be one of our best years for results!

No time for rest though, the next competition is in 2 weeks!

On the 14th July 19 we had a few of our juniors audition for Cinderella at Sheffield Lyceum Theatre this Christmas!

 

It was a very tough audition so a big well done to them all and a special well done to Eve for making it into the reserves for the junior ensemble!
