In May 2014 we assisted with CBBC Live and got the Quayside (and well known children’s TV presenters) up and dancing with our ‘Team DC’.

 

To support the promotion of CBBC’s new show “The Next Step” we choreographed a piece to the opening theme song and then taught it to crowds of hundreds over 3 days. We joined Blue Peter and presenters Mark and Sam on the main stage each day to get everyone moving.

 

Alongside this activity we also took centre stage in the Music and Dance Zone delivering workshops to people of all ages in Hip Hop, Jazz and Musical Theatre.  To celebrate our ‘Lord of the Flies’ project, we also performed short excerpts of the show led by four young men of our Dance City degree and B-Tec courses to encourage boys to join in and dance.

Statistics & Successes

Dance City led 15 workshops throughout the 3 days, entertaining crowds of up to 500 each day.
