The school feels performing experience is a joy & a necessity for all students.
The Victoria Carter London Dance Centre performs a full school recital every year. To expose all students, both amateur & professional to the demands & rewards of striving for a well-polished production. We use a professionally equipped theatre with lighting design & stage management.
Many students perform with the performance group, London Dance Ensemble, either as full-time members or as guests in the Christmas show production in December.
Beginner classes have the opportunity to perform in their first year, to introduce them to the pleasure of working to master the skills necessary to perform on stage.
Low costume rental service ensures all students can afford to participate in outstanding, but age-appropriate costumes.
Students with a flair for performance & who show motivated dance skills can audition to join the London Dance Ensemble or the Victoria Carter Dancers.
The applicant must be compatible with age, dance level, height & ability.
The mandate of the group is to "provide both amateur & future professional dancers, theatrical performance experience & skills that are outside the range of the technical studio training program."
Classwork training cannot duplicate many skills that are experienced in live performance.
It is hoped, that both amateur & future professional members will graduate from the group, taking forward to the community the ability to work with others & to achieve a common goal, not merely as competitors but as colleagues, dedicated to a common goal of creating beauty & pleasure for others while building self-confidence & personal skills for their futures.
