To celebrate the achievements and commitment of our dance pupils top dance competitors Christian and Beth treated us all to an inspiring demonstration of all five Latin dances Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Samba and Paso. We were also treated to various demonstrations of dance by our own pupils at every age group and level. Everyone involved performed their routines with confidence. Well done dancers, your performances were great!
Thank you all Mums, Dads and Grandparents for your continued support. As Christian and Beth highlighted during the question and answer session, learning to dance requires both determination and commitment and the higher the level you wish to attain the more dedication and practice is required.
Following the demonstration Christian and Beth handed out awards to the schools pupils including Medal Tests Certificates, Competitors Medals and Special Achievement Awards. These awards recognise the skill, commitment, effort and general development of our pupils. We are very proud of the progress made by every pupil. Well done dancers!
Kirkham Community Centre was packed with proud parents and friends as pupils of the dance school received their awards for dance. During the event guests were treated to various demonstrations performed by pupils in the styles of Ballroom, Latin American and Street Dance. Awards were handed out by the guest of honour Kirkham Town Mayor Councillor Paul Hodgson who was particularly impressed with the waltzing of the very young children. The dance school has developed a strong friendly community over the past 20 years teaching dance in Kirkham and this was obvious on the evening with all ages and abilities receiving awards, joining in and having fun. Kirkham community centre , the home of the dance school is a modern property located to the heart of Kirkham town centre comprising two large rooms the larger hall having a purpose built sprung timber dance floor and outside there are plenty of free parking spaces.
Thank you all Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Friends, and Family for supporting our pupils and celebrating their success. You made our Medal Presentation Evening a great family occasion. The children rose to the occasion and performed with confidence a variety of dances and had lots of fun before accepting their awards which were handed out by their teachers Harriet, Carly and Estelle. At the end of the evening their contributions were recognised with flowers handed out by the principle of the dance school Elisabeth.
Thank you also for your kind donations towards the purchase of some large portable mirrors. These will be of great assistance and will be used by the teacher team to help improve the style and technique of all the pupils. A big thank you also goes out to all those Mums (and some Dads) who help our pupils look the part.

If this occasion has inspired any Mums and Dads to give dancing a try then please get in touch. Dancing is great fun whatever your age or ability. Below are a few very short clips of the evening. I was dancing on this occasion so the footage is very ‘raw’ (straight out of my iphone!)…. I did not have time to set up and use my ‘posh camera’.
