We are so excited to announce a new performance opportunity for our amazing C&C Dance and TheatreWorks Junior School students.
Starting this Summer Term, we are introducing an annual ‘classwork celebration’ which will give our C&C and TheatreWorks students the valuable opportunity to be a part of the creative process and to brush up on their performance skills by stepping onto the stage in front of an audience of friends and family!
For those of you who have been to a Dancebox performance before, this will look a little different as this is a celebration of student creative work and classwork… so not a full Dancebox extravaganza performance… that will still take place at Easter each year and you will be getting more information about that show in due course.
We are particularly pleased that we can provide this celebration of creative work at the fabulous Venue Theatre! As you may also know, Dancebox College will be performing their end of year show at The Venue MK on Saturday 10th July (which we hope you will come along and support!) and we are lucky enough to be able to hang onto the theatre and technical team for an extra day for our Junior C&C Dance and TheatreWorks performance!
This year, we are proud to announce that ‘Elements’,
the C&C and TheatreWorks classwork celebration, will be staged
Sunday 11th July at 2.00pm!
Please find below the main points we would like to ask you to please take note of: -
Most rehearsals for ‘Elements’ will take place during normal class time; therefore, it is really important your child attends every Monday and/or Tuesday class to ensure they don’t miss anything.
We have scheduled 2 additional rehearsal dates and times, shown below, along with the performance date/time. Attendance to the below is compulsory for health & safety reasons, AND to build performance confidence in every student. If you are unable to attend sadly you will not be able to perform at The Venue MK, but you can of course continue weekly classes.
In-Studio Run - Sunday 27th June, 09h00 - 12h00 @ Dancebox – more info to follow closer to the date.
