WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING AT SSS?

PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCES

2019 saw us return to Disneyland Paris. 80 SSS members travelled to Paris to perform at the 'Time to Shine' event, lead the parade and do our very own show in the Videopolis. Life doesn't get much better than dancing with Mickey!

 

YET another performance in summer 2018 - another amazing day!  This time at Shaftesbury Theatre.  As usual all the dancers were amazing and danced their socks off!  This time the Elite Team also got to perform separate dances :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Performing in 'The Round' at The Royal Albert Hall on  23rd April 2017 was a truly memorable day!  All the dancers made all of us at Spencer Stage School very proud.  Their performance of the Cartwheels piece looked fabulous :)

This was followed only four weeks later by our Annual Show at JW3 with amazing performances all round.  Look out for new photos in our Gallery!

 

2019 ACHIEVEMENTS

As Fred Astaire said: 
"Do it big, do it right and do it with style."
And this year I think we certainly did!

  • We entered numerous dance competitions and of course came away with placings at every competition, including lots of 1st places! Too many to list here but our Senior Team consistently won with their group pieces this year and our Junior Team all placed with their solos!

  • We have hosted 230 IDTA dance exams and everyone passed with flying colours. A special applause to the parents who are getting better at hair and becoming more supportive with each session. 

  • SSS entered approximately 50 LAMDA exams, and you guessed it, everyone did exceptionally well. Including a couple of 98/100 scores!

  • 10 students did their Piano and Singing exams with ABRSM and they all got a merit or above! 

  • 30 students plus 50 supporters travelled to Disneyland Paris to perform. It was an incredible experience and we smashed it! 

  • The Annual Show this year was called 'Around the World'. 200 students participated to celebrate their own and other cultures around the world. In the current climate it was extremely moving to see children of different heritage come together and show nothing but respect and love for each others backgrounds. 

  • Sophie received arts council funding for her choreographic works. 

  • As well as our Annual Show our teachers choreographed and directed 5 School Musicals, 2 Recitals and 3 Festival Shows.

STUDENT OF THE YEAR 2019


The Student of the Year Award was passed from Nia (who has been a brilliant example and proved every lesson why she deserved it last year) to Mira! Mira is a dedicated dancer and strives to impress us in every class. There have been tears but never any tantrums as she pushes herself to be the best. All 3 of Mira's teachers voted for her (Eloise, Caoimhe and myself) but we also asked fellow students who they thought should win and Mira's name came up again and again. I must admit I push this ballerina particularly hard in class and she never disappoints, rising to every challenge thrown her way. 

Mira we love you and are extremely proud to call you SSS Student of the Year 2019.

FEEDBACK

Dear Alys, performers and parents at Spencer Stage School,
Whole Foods Market wants to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you for supporting our Whole Planet Foundation.
In particular, I want to thank Alys for organising such a truly lovely programme, the children for dancing and singing their hearts out, and all of the parents who came to see the performance in support of Whole Planet Foundation.
I hope fun was had by all.
We are truly lucky to have Spencer Stage School in our community!

Samson Marraccino has become such a consummate performer and actor that we hardly see him in classes anymore! He has appeared in films, adverts and there is much more to come!
