babyballet® Bristol South, East and West held their annual Starmakers dance show at 1532 Performing Arts Centre in Clifton, Bristol, which showcased the dance skills of pre-school boys and girls, after a course of dance classes for kids with babyballet®.
Over 70 babyballet® stars aged between 3 and 6 years old captivated 250 excited parents, family members and friends on Sunday 25th March 2018 for a wonderfully performed, professional pantomime style dance show.
babyballet® characters Twinkle and Teddy the adorable bears, Flutterstar the fairy, Chuck the cowboy and Grandad Jack, the King of the Castle in the Sky joined all of the children on the stage in this wonderful performance, where they thoroughly enjoyed dancing for their audience.
On their Grand Adventure, Twinkle and Teddy took the other babyballet® characters to the Wild Wild West where they joined in the dancing cowboy rodeo. When they finished, they had a dinnertime picnic in the sunshine with their kites and they watched the busy bees buzzing around before going on a wonderful adventure on a pirate ship. Then it was time for Flutterstar’s surprise birthday party with jelly and presents followed by the bright lights of Hollywood! The tap dancers showed everyone their moves and then everyone was invited to join in the grand finale!
The audience were enchanted as they clapped and even danced along at times!
“We are so thrilled to have completed our third annual babyballet® show and for the first time in this amazing brand new venue!” Say’s Leanne Verey, principal of babyballet® Bristol South, East and West. “Show time is our favourite time of year and we look forward to it all year round.”
“Myself and the other teachers just absolutely love seeing our little stars having such fun, shining onstage in their fabulous costumes and seeing their confidence grow. It is also magical to see their faces when they come face to face with the babyballet® characters, and the pride that they bring the audience just makes all the hard work worthwhile.”
One proud parent, Kirsty, emailed her feedback to the dance school: ‘I just wanted to say a huge thank you for facilitating such a wonderful show today. Eryn absolutely loved taking part and it was a joy to watch everyone having so much fun on stage. Well done to you and your team for such a success! We are so appreciative of your hard work – it was very well organised and clear to see the efforts that had gone into every aspect of making it so spectacular and seamless.’
