Low costume rental service ensures all students can afford to participate in outstanding, but age-appropriate costumes.
The school feels performing experience is both a joy and a necessity for all students.
The Victoria Carter London Dance Centre does a full school recital every year. Using a professionally equipped theatre with lighting design, and stage management, to expose all students both amateur and professional, to the demands and rewards of striving for a well-polished production.
Many students perform with the London Dance Ensemble either as full-time members or as guests in their 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 skills necessary to perform on stage.
Students with a flair for performance, and 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, and ability.
The mandate of the group is to "provide both amateur and future professional dancers, theatrical performance experience and 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, both amateur and future professional members will graduate from the group taking forward to the community, the ability to work with others and to achieve a common goal, not merely as competitors but as colleagues, dedicated to a common goal of creating beauty and pleasure for others, while building self-confidence and personal skills for their futures.
