This year came with many changes and challenges for staff and students at Showtime as the Corona Virus forced the closure of our studio. Additional to this for the first time in 23 years our Mid-year concert was cancelled due to restrictions on large gatherings. This meant that it would be the first year where we only perform one concert for our friends and family. This upset many of our staff and students who are always keen to get up on stage and put on a show at any opportunity.
However, in the famous words ‘The Show Must Go On’ our staff began teaching online classes live to our exam students through zoom. This allowed our students to keep on top of their technique and to keep them involved with what they love doing through those difficult months. Additional videos of choreography created by teachers at Showtime were uploaded to Google Classroom and we loved seeing their videos of dancing at home.
Our studio was reopened on the 18th of May allowing us to finally see all our students again face to face. This was a new experience for both our staff and students however everyone worked hard to make it work and proved how dedicated and hard working our students are!
