'Welcome to the Movies' - Ballet Show 2018
We held this year's show Welcome to the Movies on the 10th February in the Helix, DCU... And not to blow our own trumpets at East Coast HQ but it was AMAZING!!
Students from 2 and a half years up to 14 years took part and did such a wonderful job at performing their dances. Grade 6 students from Coastal Ballet School in Drogheda came along to perform as our special guests..en pointe! Our students worked extremely hard for months in advance at classes to learn the show work and polish and perfect it. Each class did a dance with their group to a song from the movies and students that come twice/three times per week got to perform two or more numbers each. Songs ranged from Disney's Frozen and Little Mermaid to Top Hat, Wizard of Oz, La La Land and more.
The atmosphere on and off stage was electric. We loved seeing the excitement of the children about to have their moment under the lights and cameras and in front of our audience. And the audience! Thank you so much to parents and families of East Coast School of Ballet for your support of our school and our students. You made their day being so supportive and attentive. We didn't get a lot of photographs backstage as we were kept quite busy but there is a DVD of the show available to order and purchase (just contact Karen). Here is a very little snippet of 4 our very little ballerinas waiting for their turn side stage... Heart. Melting.
