Stage to Screen

A slick and professional show with bags of colour and exotic costumes is the best way to describe the bi-ennial show produced by Hethersett's Yvonne School of Dance.

Well over 200 dancers of all ages delighted two packed houses in Norwich Theatre Royal with a show full of versatility and dance ranging from traditional to modern, tap to ballet.

We should never lose sight of the fact that the show features amateurs, many of whom perform through the sheer love of dancing. This is what makes it so special. It is easy to imagine the hundreds of hours of rehearsal that go into making these shows such a success and the enthusiasm of the audience helps to show that the dancers are sons, daughters, mums and relatives and not people who gain their living from the stage.

The show proudly showcased the skills of all the pupils from the youngest tots just starting out through to adults and the logistical nightmare of moving seamlessly from one routine to the next, with a huge number of costume changes, was handled with ease. Back stage it must have been mayhem but to the audience it was a show that enlivened the spirits and gave two hours of the best possible dancing entertainment.

The shows and music featured came from both the West End and Broadway from the likes of Les Miserables, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Rat Pack, The Flintstones, Wuthering Heights, Shrek and Toy Story.

Again there were plenty of surprises with some lesser known shows being represented and the whole production culminating with the exotic colour of Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire.

Many of the costumes, ranging from Flintstones pre-history to modern day jive, were provided with money raised from fund-raising events, proving that the show is a real Hethersett community event.

Hethersett based Yvonne School of Dance has been running for 28 years. It has kept in step with the times and Stage to Screen once again showcased its vibrancy.

A retiring collection raised money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
