FOUR FANTASTIC SHOWS!
HUGE congratulations to all who took part (approximately 250 dancers in all)! Absolutely brilliant performances! There are so many brilliant photos to look through.
Congratulations to the dancers from our Professional Programme who were selected by a panel of judges to take part in U Dance for the second year running, at Bedford University, this March. Not only that, but on the day of the performance, they were chosen to represent the Eastern region at the NATIONAL U Dance Festival!!! This is a fantastic achievement, reflecting your hard work in classes. If you are over 12 years old and interested in joining the Professional Programme, then please speak to Reb or Lucie about whether this is right for you, as it opens up lots of opportunities.
This half term commences on Monday 5th June and ends on Saturday 22nd July.
WOW!!!!! What can we say?! Absolutely outstanding achievement by our mixed team, being crowned the National Champions of Born To Perform 2022!!!!
Gifford Dance at Disneyland!
HUGE congratulations to all our dancers who performed on stage at Disneyland in Paris in April! The Disney coordinator said she was blown away by the high standard of all our routines. We now have a video out on YouTube, of this very special weekend.
Grand Final at M&S Arena
At the end of February 2020, Gifford Dance ‘mixed age’ competition team were in the GRAND FINAL of THE LARGEST GROUP DANCE COMPETITION IN THE UK. They performed at LIVERPOOL M&S ARENA which is HUGE! (where they held Eurovision). There were 22 heats, 4 all day semi-finals at Blackpool Opera House and approximately 220 routines in the Grand Final. Our team came 3rd in genre and 6th overall for their age out of everyone in the UK!!!!!!! Our dancers are absolutely excelling and what an outstanding achievement this was. Videos were tricky to film in such a large venue, so please don’t let the quality of the video put you off. We hope you will take a moment to appreciate the quality of the dancing instead. Three of these talented dancers are only age 10! We are just beaming with pride. Well done!
