To gain as much performing experience as possible the school likes to get involved with many community events as well as hosting our own performances.
We have supported the Todmorden Carnival for over ten years walking in the parade and performing dance displays in centre vale park. It has become one of the highlights of the carnival for all involved and it also gives members of the school the opportunity to feel like part of the whole DC Dancers Team.
We also have an annual show at the end of the year which is split into two performances. The Little Wonders show is for children up to and including academic year two and for children in years three and above we have our Annual Dance Recital. Both shows are on the same day, usually the last Sunday before Christmas, at the Todmorden Hippodrome Theatre.
All children are invited to perform in the shows and costumes are provided by the school. Theatre lighting and sound add to the whole experience which makes the day very enjoyable and magical.
We also hold medal presentations for children who have danced in exams which gives parents the chance to see a performance of their exam work followed by an awards ceremony where official IDTA certificates and trophies are also awarded. Special School trophies are also awarded to pupils who show excellence in each Dance Brach (Theatre, Freestyle and Ballroom)
