Company Dancers attend 'Take the Stage' Dance Competition 2023


After a wonderful performance on Friday at Ocanafest in Mallow racecourse to a very large crowd, on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd April, Company Dancers from Centre Stage School travelled to Dublin to participate in 'Take the Stage', a nationwide annual dance competition.  Months of preparation and rehearsal paid off with an amazing weekend of performances and trophies, with Centre Stage claiming many accolades, including 11 first place trophies in various different categories.  Centre Stage would like to thank the dancers, the parents who supported them, and the choreographers Aoibhinn Quirke, Lesley Anne Radcliffe and David O'Connor for all their hard work and dedication in the run up to 'Take the Stage'.


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!
