This course is designed to showcase talents that have been encouraged at home, or children that may attend dance classes out of school; play an instrument in their own time; or even just enjoy singing in the shower! Or even if not Katy will work with the students over the course of the week to bring together an eclectic mix of talent through performance. This special course gives these children the opportunity to bring their talents to the summer school and present them at the end of the week where they perform in front of a much bigger audience comprising mums, dad, grandparents and so on. Competition is fierce, and the desire to win is palpable! Children will need to provide a costume and any equipment needed to support their talent, such as tap shoes and musical instruments.
