Dance Festival Success
Congratulations to each and every performer who made this years Dance Festival such a resounding success.
In total 470 students from West Norfolk took part ranging from Reception to Year 6. 18 schools were represented within the 26 different Dance performances all interpreting the theme of “A night at the Movies” in their own individual way.
The event has grown over the years to the extent that this year it had to be split into two performances – one in the morning and one the afternoon at the very prestigious Alive Corn Exchange. This was to accommodate not only the increasing number of participants but also the increasing demand for tickets from parents and supporters.
Each of the two performances were started and concluded with a demonstration dance by Megan Smith who has worked and Danced for Studio 19.
This has become one of the more popular events on the SSP calendar due to its inclusive nature and quality of venue.
Feedback comments from schools attending have been:
‘Thank you again for a wonderful morning. I had 44 children on an absolute high when we got back to school! We are very lucky to have the opportunity to dance on such a great stage.’
‘I just wanted to email you to pass on my sincere thanks for this mornings SSP dance festival. Our children absolutely loved it, as did the large number of parents and grandparents who attended. The children all went home tonight, still in their costumes, with big smiles plastered on their faces and glitter still in their hair.’
‘This is the first time we have attended this event and we though it was brilliant! It was so well organised and run, a special event which we feel very lucky to have been part of and one all of the children will remember. Please pass on my congratulations and heartfelt thanks to everyone involved.’
