CSS Performers excel at 5678 Elite Dance Competition

On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th March, a group of 50 Centre Stage School performers travelled with teachers and chaperones to Dublin to compete at the prestigious 5678 Elite Dance Competition in Dublin.  These dancers prepared a staggering 40 performances to enter into the competition, all created by David O'Connor, Aoibhinn Quirke and Lesley Anne Radcliffe. Since September these teachers and students have created these 40 pieces as a group, which is a massive achievement in itself, but the standard of dance and the level of talent in this group is amazing, and is something to be celebrated.  On top of that, the group were highly placed in most categories, and won awards in all age categories. They have worked so hard to get where they are and, despite 2 years of Covid, this team is stronger than ever.  Centre Stage School would like to thank the students and teachers for their commitment to the preparations for the competition, the chaperones who travelled with them and the parents who have supported the students all the way.  To see the photo gallery for the weekend, click here.



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!
