25th Anniversary “Reflections” show at Longfield Hall
A huge thanks for all of our parents and friends who supported us for the shows in the Autumn.
The whole school was involved in the three performances and everyone performed magnificently, from our two and a half year olds right up to our adult dancers - an amazing total of 20 adult tappers performed with terrific energy.
It was such a wonderful experience to have been part of the Autumn season at Longfield Hall. The lighting and sound transformed the hall into a truly magical venue. Seeing our little ducklings "evolve" into the Swan Lake act two swans’ entrance was a delight.
Let’s keep
Longfield Hall on the map by continuing to support it!
