The CCDA Annual Summer Show – ‘Enchanted Tales’ was a great success, with 5 performances and fantastic dancing fun that filled the Sundial Theatre. See our gallery for picture highlights.

The CCDA graduates class of 2014 finished in July, each graduate received their CCDA bear. We love you and will miss you! Good luck in your adventures and remember to not be strangers!

August 2014

Another fantastic week of Summer workshops with Camilla Alicia Bates, Thomas Ashton, James Garland.

The Musical Theatre boot camp week – Pupils learnt exerts from Frozen, Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Mary Poppins! Which they performed at the Sundial theatre at the end of the week.

Whilst CCDA was on a break, Principal Miss Katherine was at Urdang Dance School in London at an ISTD course going over examination grades, to make sure we are all up to date with the new changes that are being made to the Modern syllabus.

CCDA Graduate Tom Wilkinson’s company the “Ashton Dance Collective” performed their first professional gig for the BIG BUS Tour, London. CCDA graduate Camilla Bates is also a member of the group. The Company are now working on brand new material and are working towards putting on their own show.

The CCDA dancers were again invited to perform at The Phoenix Festival. Seniors performed “The Hunger Games” and our brand new CCDA Cheerleading group performed at the arena in the Abbey Grounds, Cirencester.

CCDA seniors Mia, Amy and Abi also danced during the evening with the rock band OPUSWEED at the Phoenix festival. CCDA are very proud of your performance!
