Dancers from Aycliffe Dance Academy had the opportunity of a lifetime this Easter! Production Company Enchanted Entertainment toured the UK with their Easter pantomime ‘The Wizard of Oz’ making one of their stops at the Darlington Civic Theatre!
They contacted ADA to see if they could provide six Senior Dancers for the panto as they’ve been really impressed with the Academy the last two years! After a gruelling audition process the girls; Rebecca Carney, Megan Elvidge, Chloe Hutchinson, Sarah Murray, Katya Seaman and Kennedy Wilson were selected.
The girls had to work extremely hard learning complex dance routines, scenes and songs ready to perform alongside professional stars such as Dani Harmer (Tracy Beaker) and Bobby Davro. It was such an amazing experience, one that the Academy is proud to have been able to offer their students!
The next big venture for the dance school is their annual show taking place this July. They are currently trying to fundraise for costumes and have a Family Fun Day this Saturday 23rd April at the Bethany Centre, Woodham and is on from 10am to 2pm.
There will be Balloon Modelling by Professor Nincompoop, Bouncy Castle (Bounce About & Play), Fashion Boutique (Dolls House), Face Painting, Games, Stalls, Tombolas and much, much more! Everyone is welcome to come along and join in the fun with FREE entry! If you would like further information about the event please contact Emma on: 07908 162 868.
