Blackpool and Fylde Dance Academy are putting on a performance at Thornton Little Theatre called “CATCHY RHYTHMS 2014”
The show takes place on Saturday and Sunday 12th / 13th of July with performances starting at 7.30pm on Saturday, and Sunday is a matinee which starts at 1.30pm.
There will be over 80 students taking part, aged between 2 and 21 yrs. Tickets are priced at £8.50 for adults and £6.50 for children and senior citizens.
The students have been rehearsing weekly and are really excited. The show is to help raise funds for Trinity Hospice and Brian House.
The show has really brought the dancing school together – children have showed dedication and the parents have been very supportive. Some parents have gained the status of chaperones/matrons which is a process that involves interviews, references and an online course, so that we would comply with the local authorities children’s entertainment guidelines.
