Performance Opportunities

At CCDA we believe in encouraging performance to increase confidence, team work, self esteem, as well as technical and creative abilities. Therefore all pupils are given the opportunity to perform at CCDA…

Annual Summer Show

The annual Summer Show is the highlight of our calendar and gives dancers a fantastic opportunity to perform in a professional theatre environment, with the disciplines of costuming, lighting, staging, rehearsals and a big enthusiastic audience.

The Annual Awards ceremony held in January, celebrates all the students have achieved in the past year. Highlights of the Summer Show, Dance Festival entries, Pantomimes and Summer Workshop are performed to family and friends, followed by the eagerly anticipated awards ceremony, recognising achievements in exams, festival competitions, performance, potential and the much much more. The ceremony culminates with the presentation of the highly regarded Dancer of the Year trophy!
