Dance Company wow the judges at Quest Dance Competition

On Sunday 30th April, Company Dance students from Centre Stage School performed at 'The Quest Dance Competition' held in Charleville Park Hotel.  Lyrical dance, Jazz dance and Contemporary dance were just a few of the styles on display in group dances, quads, trios, duos and solos.  This is one of many competitions they have entered in the last 6 months and Centre Stage School students won an array of prizes on the day.  Centre Stage would like to thank the dancers for their commitment, the students' parents for their support and the teachers/choreographers Aoibhinn Quirke, Lesley Anne Radcliffe and David O'Connor for their enthusiasm, passion and dedication.  Artistic Director Aideen McAuliffe is particularly proud of two senior students Sophie Ryan and Emily O'Connor, for whom this was the last competition in which they will participate representing the school, as they both have been accepted to prestigious third level Performing arts courses in the UK starting in September.  They both have attended Centre Stage since they were 4 years old, so they will be sadly missed, but their teachers are incredibly proud of their achievements.

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!
