Local Dance School Performs at Disneyland!   
Bexhill and Pevensey based Performing Arts school The Diana Freedman's School of Dance and Performing Arts have had fantastic success with their pupils passing a Disney audition and performing there on the 27th October 2018. The Dance School had a brilliant weekend performing a 20 minute long routine to packed crowds on Disneyland Paris' prestigious Videopolis Stage in Discoveryland. The performance received tremendous cheers and compliments from the huge crowd and the School was delighted by their fantastic feedback. The Dance School had 35 performers take part and had been working hard since their video audition in July 2017, with weekly rehearsals culminating to their final phenomenal performance. The DFSD were ecstatic to be complimented by the Disney team for their slick performance and wonderful Disney smiles, and a fantastic weekend was had by all who attended. 

Its Panto time.....AGAIN!
After the phenomenal success of DFSD's Pantomime Aladdin in December 2018 the school are about to do it again! Rehearsals will start at the beginning of the Summer term and the Panto reveal and audition information will be coming soon. So keep your eyes peeled!   

A super big congratulations to Kaiah, Hannah and Poppy who have qualified for the All England Dance Regional Final this year! With only a very few soloists and duos entered at Hastings festival this year- we were delighted with how hard our wonderful pupils worked. Congratulations to Poppy, Hannah, Kaiah, Jessica, Shannon, Lily Ella, Hermione, Isla and Aimee. All the girls performed beautifully and Hannah and Poppy were awarded 2nd out of 18 entries for their modern duet and Kaiah 3rd for her song and dance in a large class! Lots of our soloists only just missed out on placings and we are super proud of you all performing in an All England festival. Well done DFSD team! 

South Theatre Festival Results 2019
DFSD have had another incredible Festival this year! Not only did we have fantastic results and placings, we were praised on our creative choreography, our strong technique and how polished and drilled our fabulous groups were! We even placed 1st in 3 out of 3 Group sections this year, proving how hard our team have been working and how motivated and hardworking they are as a team, from our lovely seniors down to our young juniors.
The girls (and their parents!) have all worked so hard over a long but successful three days, and we at DFSD are so proud of not only what they have achieved on stage but also their lovely behaviour backstage, supporting their fellow pupils, making friends and being kind to others. Thank you to all our pupils for putting their all in every day, to our parents for their continued support, and to friends and family for coming to watch. Also a big thank you to the organisers of this lovely friendly festival of performers, supportive parents and fellow professional teachers.
