Success at Elite Dance Competition, Belfast 2020!


On Saturday 1st February, an excited team of company dancers made the long journey to Belfast for the 5, 6, 7, 8 Elite Dance competition, and the trip was certainly worth the effort!  The following are the list of accolades that the group gathered at this highly competitive event.
⭐1st Jazz Group (Over 17 yrs) - Senior Company
⭐1st - Over 17yrs (Quad) Emma Murphy, Sinead Cronin, Katie Gallagher and Emily O'Connor
⭐1st - Over 17yrs (Jazz Quad) Erin Teape, Zoe O'Gorman, Sinead Cronin and Emily Murphy
⭐1st - Lyrical Trio (Over 17yrs) Hollie Corkery, Emily Murphy and Ninette Donougher
⭐2nd - Lyrical Duet (Over 17yrs)  Luke Walsh and Chloe Whelan
⭐2nd - Anything Goes Duet (Over 17yrs) Hollie Corkery and Luke Walsh)
These kids left their hearts on the 5678 stage, and certainly did not disappoint. All their hard work paid off and watching how they 100% supported each other to put their very best foot forward was such a joy. They were so proud to represent themselves and our precious school. What incredible young ambassadors they are, who know the true meaning of the word 'team'.  Congratulations to all our performers, and thank you to both the parents who travelled and supported them in Belfast, and those parents who couldn't make it, but who have supported these dancers every step of the way.  A special shout out to our Dance teachers and choreographers David O'Connor and Lesley Anne Radcliffe for all their diligence and passion.  Click here to see photos of all your fantastic performers on the trip!



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!
