The show must go on for Carnaby dancers!

Date published: 20 June 2020

A local award-winning dance school is not only continuing all classes online - moving into their 11th week of doing so - but they are now running virtual rehearsals ahead of their forthcoming annual show.

Rehearsals are being pre-recorded and posted online in the form of live choreography videos ahead of the Carnaby School of Dance's re-scheduled show, 'Stars and Stripes Spectacular', on Saturday, September 26 at the Grange Theatre in Oldham. 

Carnaby School of Dance tutors have continued to defy the odds since being temporarily shut down since Covid-19 meant that they had to cease physical classes on March 17.

A spokesperson said: "We have worked tirelessly over the last three months to ensure that there has been continuity and routine for our students amidst what is a very difficult time for everybody.

"We hope that our Carnaby School of Dance community will come out the other side thriving more than ever and we can't wait to be back in the studio with all of our students and their families.

"We are working hard as we have to not only ensure that students can continue their regular classes online, but also their show rehearsals.

"We are aiming to instil a determined attitude into all of our students, and if we can pull off a show following at least 70-per-cent of rehearsals being online, we can do almost anything!"
