CSBS dancers sparkle onstage!

CSBS dancers sparkle onstage!

We were delighted to stage our first dance displays since 2019, "Everybody Dance Now!"

Due to Covid restrictions, we were unable to stage our annual dance displays in 2020 and 2021, so this year's displays were extra special! Over 500 dancers performed across 5 different dress rehearsals and 5 different shows in the Macrobert Arts Centre. For many of our dancers, it was their first experience of a dance display, which made it very exciting!

Dress Rehearsals...

Our dress rehearsals gave the dancers a chance to experience the bustle of backstage and to perform their routines onstage with final adjustments for spacing and costumes. We had professional technicians operating the lights and sound, including fitting our musical theatre students with personal radio mics, which all added to the adventure! The dancers were helped behind the scenes by our teachers and a team of volunteer chaperones who did a remarkable job of running backstage; we are extremely grateful! We have some galleries of photos from the dress rehearsals on our CSBS Facebook page:

Professional photos from the dress rehearsals will be available to view and purchase soon from Leask Photography. You can view the galleries on the Leask Photography website. If you did not pick up a password card at the displays, please just get in touch with us.

Fabulous performances...

We were so delighted to watch the joy in everyone's performances and to hear the great applause from each audience... Mrs Clark absolutley loved being able to watch one of the shows from the auditorium rather than from backstage in the wings, and was overwhelmed by the whole thing! On our CSBS Facebook page you can view some galleries of photos taken during the performance from the wings by teacher Amanda:

Charity collections...

Our programmes were by donation to charity and our Senior students also coordinated a bucket collection after each performance. We raised a total of £543.56 from programme donations and £839.37 in the bucket collections. Thank you for your support; we will keep you updated about which local and national charities and good causes we support with your donations.
