Performances

 

Putting our dancers centre stage

 

There is nothing quite like dancing on stage. Exams are a great way to measure progress but the thrill of performing a number in costume, under lights, to an audience, is like no other. It also builds confidence, resilience and team work – all useful skills in life. Most of all, shows are fun which is why we grab every opportunity for our students to find the spotlight.

Our next show is Matilda Jr, at Redruth School. Performance dates are Thursday 27th, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th July. To book your tickets, just click on the links below:

After that, it's our very special danced Nativity "Dancing to Bethlehem" (December 2023) and our Diamond anniversary spectacular "Diamonds: The Big 6-oh! Show" (June 2024). We are also providing dancers for the big Redruth pantomime "Snow White", at the Regal Theatre in January 2024.

Our most recent whole-school production was "Story", which featured 300 performers and raised over £4,000 for Cornwall Hospice Care.

 

We last performed the magical “Dancing to Bethlehem“ in 2019. The basis of the show goes back to the 1970s when Mrs Matthews first conceived a danced Nativity.  It is a unique piece of theatre which features almost the whole school – some 250+ performers. The scale of the undertaking means that we only perform it every 4 years and it has become a rite-of-passage for our students.

Our Summer School always features a performance put together in a week. This year, teachers included Emily Goodenough and Adam Denman - two current musical theatre professionals. We had a ball!
