Dancers perform in showtime special

Audiences packed Twyford Hall to enjoy performances of ‘Showtime’, by Bourn-da-Dance, on November 24, 25.

Over 100 dancers presented a diverse range of dance in the program’s first half, then combined for an entertaining and non-stop journey with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory after interval.

It was obvious that the dancers were enjoying the experience, as well as doing their absolute best for both performances.

The school’s founder Janita Fernando, was thrilled with the results and very proud of the way in which all dancers performed and conducted themselves. The dazzling array of costumes were a great hit, with colourful lighting by Bruce Waddell and sound operation by Nathan McKeogh. Age groups from three years to adult performed, including very strong teenage and young adult groups and a mixed age boys group.

Bourn-da-Dance was founded 18 years ago by Janita specialising in jazz and tap and six years ago the teaching staff expanded to include Amber Little offering classical ballet and musical theatre.

More recently Zumba classes with Emma-Jane Skeers have begun and in 2019 Cass Michelin will be returning from maternity leave to resume her popular hip-hop classes. Enrolments for next year are now open (
