I always do the Stageforce Musical Theatre Workshops at The Fieldgate Centre, Kingsclere and at Basingstoke Sports Centre. They are awesome! It's great fun because you get to act, dance, sing, make scenery and props and then do a performance for your family and friends. At The Sports Centre, you get to go swimming too!

Stageforce is really fun. I have been taking part since I was 10 years old. I really enjoy making the backdrop and singing and dancing. On Thursday we go swimming which is great! Stageforce is so good and I can't wait for the next one.

“My name is Marimar Hunt-Ruiz I am 10 years of age and I am very happy to be awarded dancer of the month [for September 2010]. I started dancing ballet when I was 3 years old. I got taught ballet by a Russian man in Germany.  When I was 5 years old we moved to England and I continued my classes with Debbie. I am in Grade 3 for Jazz and Grade 2 for Ballet and Tap. This year was the first time that I competed in the Medal Test and I passed with honours therefore this is a great achievement for me. I am working very hard on my routines for the October Medal Test. I can’t wait!

Also it was a great experience dancing in the Burghfield Festival as we got to compete against other dance schools. It was so nerve-racking, but when I got on the stage and started dancing I forgot about everything happening around me, it was so magical! One of my biggest dreams is to become a professional dancer and dance in the West End. My passion is dancing and I enjoy learning and performing every single routine that Debbie gives us. I am really looking forward to the Anvil in 2011. “

"This IS the best dance school. I went there from the age of three to sixteen and had the best time of my life. I am now 28 and so wish I could go back!! And most of all I miss Debbie Palmer! The best dance teacher in the world!"

Katie Player

"I am 16 years old and have been dancing at the Sports Centre Dance Academy for about 9 years.  I enjoy taking part in class work and various different shows which I have performed in.  My favourite type of dance is Ballet and I feel that I have been pushed to progress in all 3 classes that I participate in.  I have lots of fun at this dance school and will continue to in the future."

Hannah Minall

"I have attended the Lynden school of Dance for 13 years. I still enjoy dancing with the school just as much as when I was 8 years old! The rehearsing and performing in the shows are the highlight for me. I love the adrenaline you get before stepping out onto the stage. I have met some great friends over the years & hope to continue dancing with the school for a long time yet."

Hannah Phillips

"I have been dancing at The Dance Academy since I was 5 and I am now 14. I love dancing as it is fun and a great way to keep fit. The shows are always so much fun to rehearse and perform. I also compete in competitions and medal tests. The teachers are so encouraging and supportive."
