Please join us in saying a big congratulations to former student Leah who has just been signed by McCarthy Graham Management!
Your Ecco family are very proud of you.
Well done Leah!
We are so proud to announce that senior dancer and student teacher Elysia has accepted a place at Bird College in London where she will train for 3 years in Professional Dance & Musical Theatre!
She will begin her studies in September.
Whilst we are definitely going to miss her, we cannot wait to see where this next chapter takes her!
We know she will keep working hard and rise to the challenges that await.
Well done Elysia!
04/05/2020 A Letter to All Our Students
We know practicing at home isn’t the same as being at the studio.
We know it’s hard to practice full out in your living room, bedroom or garden and that this is not possible in some cases.
We know that you might be feeling a little or a lot rusty despite your best efforts.
We know you might be having those “I’m rubbish” moments at home.

10/02/2020 Small But Mighty Comp Crew Take on Cotgrave Trophy Day!
We had a small but mighty crew of competitors take to the floor at Cotgrave on Sunday the 9th of February 20.
With only 13 dancers we managed to bring home 24 trophies and 11 top 3 places. We almost had 4 life losses, so frustrating but nevertheless we couldn't be prouder as our dancers couldn't have done any more!
10/02/2020 Ecco's 2019 Special Award Winners!
Saturday the 8th of February 2020 saw our annual exam medal presentation and awards night take place at Niagara Conference and Leisure Centre.
As always, it was a chance to celebrate the hard work and achievements of the previous year and let our hair down with a party and disco afterwards.
Exam certificates and medals were handed out to all those who entered exams back in November 19 and we announced our special awards for 2019!
Here is the list of worthy winners.
We just want to say a huge well done to one of our senior dancers and newly qualified student teacher Elysia, who after recent auditions has been offered places on courses at Urdang Academy, Performers College, Laine Theatre Arts and Bird College! What an achievement!
Wherever she decides to go, everyone here at Ecco will be supporting her all the way.

13/01/20 Exceptional Exam Results for Ecco!
We held two IDTA examination sessions back in the middle of November 19 with students taking exams in all styles.
