Having danced from the age of ten at a local dance school right up to leaving secondary school at the age of sixteen, I successfully auditioned for the Dance Centre, Preston College. This is where I trained for four years, studying all styles of Dance and achieved my teaching qualifications with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. In September 2004 I launched Centre Stage School of Dance. After only 4 months we held our first Dance Display, then in 2006 was our first full production – Dance Fever. The show was a real success and spurred the school forwards. Our next show in 2009, A Night on Broadway was another Smash Hit raising the bar higher again. Francesca has been a teacher at the school for the past three years and also achieved her teaching qualifications with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing whilst training at Preston Dance College. She then went on to dance for six months in Paris at Euro Disney and has gained her teaching experience at other local dance schools. Francesca has helped run the school during my maternity leave and continues to teach for us ensuring the pupils benefit from the experience of two teachers. In November 2009 the Infants, Juniors, Seniors and Students undertook their ISTD examinations. The pupils had studied the syllabus for Modern and Tap and had put in many hours of practice. All of the pupils passed the exams, achieving Grade A’s and B’s!!! Stage experience is an important part of a dancer’s training and everyone involved in tonight’s performance has put in a great deal of hard work, lots of enthusiasm and many hours of practice to make this show a success. Finally, I’d like to thank you all for coming to support us this evening and I hope you’ll enjoy watching the show as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together. Enjoy!!! Sharon..

A BIG thank you! I would like to thank the following people for their help and support with tonight’s production and also throughout the year. Francesca and Gina for all their hard work and support each week and especially during my maternity leave. My husband, Oliver, who has helped with the Music and Scenery Construction as well as everything else!! Alan Dodd for all of his help with Lighting, Scenery and Stage Management. David Rourke of WN6 Creative for yet again another fantastic programme and show design. Nadine Downhill is our very talented dressmaker who has made some of the beautiful costumes. All the volunteers working backstage helping to get the children ready and on stage on time. The stage crew for their help with the scenery. Also, the volunteers at the front of house, making sure everything runs smoothly. All the parents for their time and patience throughout the year, every bit of support is appreciated. Finally, I’d like to thank all the pupils for their hard work and enthusiasm every lesson. They have all improved a great deal since we started practicing for the show, I’m extremely proud of them all and feel very lucky to have such dedicated pupils.
