Dance Fest 2021 in Firkin Crane Theatre

All of our company dancers worked so hard to learn and polish their performances for 'Dance Fest' in The Firkin Crane Theatre in Cork on Monday 25th Oct. 'Dance Fest' was a celebration of dance and performance, MC'ed by Dane O'Sullivan and with awards presented by renowned Dublin based dancer Alan McGrath.  As well as performances there were dance workshops by Dane and Alan, while Upstyle Junkie Audrey Hanrahan did a hair demonstration for effective styles that performers could do in-between dances.  While it wasn't a full blown competition, 'Dance Fest' was a celebration of the return to live performances on stage and a confidence boost for all our incredible dancers.  Prizes were awarded for groups who showed the most potential, the most passion, the best demonstration of team work, the most entertaining and the most inspiring, and our dancers really did themselves proud.

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!
