‘Born to Perform’ Show Reviews

In November 2012, 143 of our fabulous dancers took to the stage at St Helen’s Theatre Royal.  It was without a doubt the highlight of the year and the feedback was simply outstanding.  We had so much talent bursting onto the stage and I was extremely proud to be able to showcase this;  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our students for their dedication and hard work, without them we would not have had such a spectacular show and it is their passion for dance that makes my role as their dance teacher so worth while.

Please enjoy reading through a small selection of the many wonderful comments I received about ‘Born to Perform’ 2012…


“Wow what a brilliant brilliant show. We enjoyed every minute. So glad we took Abigail to watch. She was clapping and dancing along in her seat to every dance! She loved watching all of her friends up there and she cant wait to get back to dancing. Well done Miss Anna and all the dancing stars! Absolutely fab. xx” – Michelle


“Thank you so much Anna. That was without doubt the best night of 2012. The inspiration you have given the girls through all of this is more than any mum could hope for.” – Danielle 


“Well, what a show. I’ve been to one or two & this is without doubt the best i’ve seen. Anna Shimmin , you should be so proud of yourself. Your school’s first big performance that has eclipsed all other’s i’ve seen 🙂 Was a bit strange as well, seen our Meg in the group 1-2’s many moons ago, now she’s in the seniors. Many congrats Anna , all the dancers & helpers 🙂 x” – Malc


“Congratulations on a fantastic show. We are so proud of Ava + are still drying our tears from over the rainbow! You should be very chuffed with yourself because it was spectacular + every1 on stage was fab xxx” – Jessica


“So Proud (to bursting point) that my 3 year old was a part of something so wonderful last night! A bit sad its all over now and Minnie’s not having any of it, she’s adamant that she’s doing it all again tonight! Tried telling her Miss Anna needs a big sleep and a rest now but she disagrees “oh mummy-Miss Anna won’t mind!” hehe xx” – Niaomi


“So so so good !! The dancers all looked amazing, really enjoyed it. Well done to all xx” – Rebecca


“What an amazing dance school you have Miss Anna! The talent was just bursting out of every dance! Ady and I were a very proud mummy and daddy of our mini street dancer and to think she had pulled out the week before with nerves!! so so pleased you and the girls were so kind and encouraged her to perform! For her to have been part of this was magic, and the memories we will have for a lifetime, thanking you endlessly xx” Lynn
