Aaron Dwyer Dance Competition in Cork!

On Sunday 26th November in Blackrock, Cork City, Centre Stage School's Pulse Company, Ignite Company, Senior Company and Elite Company all competed at the Aaron Dwyer Dance Competition.  It was an early morning for some with the competition kicking off at 8.30am, but these dancers are committed and passionate about what they do so that was no problem.  They performed impeccably in a range of different dance styles; Jazz, Commercial, Lyrical and an Open section.  They performed in groups, as well as solos, duets and trios, and the results speak for themselves with a multitude of awards in every category.  We would like to thank the talented dance teachers and choreographers David O'Connor, Aobhinn Quirke and Annemarie Cahill for their work towards this competition.  We would also like to thank the students for their energy and commitment and the performers' parents for their unwavering support!

Lucy has been attending Centre Stage since the age of 4.  I can’t thank the teachers and staff enough for all they instill in our kids; the talent, confidence & camaraderie inside those doors are so important, and it's a privilege for any child to be part of, and something which they’ll carry with them through life.

My daughter Aoibhe Lilly has attended Centre Stage for the past 5 years. The overall experience has been phenomenal. She has always enjoyed the high standard of classes on offer. Centre Stage offers a caring, nurturing environment, where love of arts is encouraged, in a place where children can dance, act, sing, laugh and have fun, making lifelong friends and memories. In Aoibhes own words 'It's my happy place'!

My daughter has been attending Centre Stage School for 4 years. She started with Theatre Tots and moved on ward from there. The musical theatre classes have been instrumental in the development of her self-confidence, as well as her great love for music and dance. The teachers and staff include and encourage all children of all abilities, and each child has a chance to shine. I couldn’t recommend Centre Stage School highly enough. Thank you to everyone there for the amazing work you do!
