cast will be aged from three to adult and the family friendly show is known
for its high octane routines and colourful costumes. The Yvonne School of
Dancing trains all ages in all forms of dance from tap and ballet to modern.
Principal Yvonne Cutting
said: “Our aim is to provide children and adults with a recreational hobby
and grounding in theatre work. Apart from teaching our students dance skills,
we endeavour to develop their confidence, stamina and poise.”
The show is hard work for
Yvonne and her team who choreograph and perfect the routines, design and help
create the costumes, and oversee the show right through rehearsals until the
cast takes to the stage at the theatre.
It is a formula that
works, as Norwich Theatre Royal spokesman John Bultitude explains. “The
shows always prove incredibly popular and the Yvonne School of Dance enjoys a
well-earned reputation for producing a great show with all the students
working very hard to contribute to this.”
The dance school’s 2008
production “Bright Lights of Broadway” was described in the Evening News
as “a show full of zip, zest and exuberance.” As well as providing first
class entertainment the show also raises money for local charities which in
the past have included Hethersett Surgery, Quidenham Hospice, Clare Special
School, Norwich, and the East Anglia Air Ambulance.
Tickets for the show are
priced from £5 to £15 and available from the Theatre Royal box office on
