[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

Freda Hearty and the Dance Kids have once again exceeded expectations and delighted audiences with their show ‘Let’s Dance’. The talented Dance Kids aged from just four years danced and sang their hearts out at the weekend when ‘Let’s dance’ took to An Tàin Arts Centre stage and brought the house down; with delighted audiences declaring it “the best show yet”.

With two packed shows, enchanted audiences were invited to be the special guests of Beauty and the Beast, where they received a very warm welcome from Miss. Potts, Chip, Luminere and the dancing dishes. The tiny tots got the biggest cheer of the night when they took to the stage to perform to songs from the musicals such as ‘Happy Talk’ and ‘Singing in the Rain’. Afterwards the audience were delighted with songs from Michael Jackson, ‘Matilda’, ‘Cats’ and ‘Justin Bieber’ to name just a few. The night of entertainment also included a trip to Greece where the cast of Mamma Mia danced the night away with the audience singing and dancing along.

After six months of hard work and two show-stopping performances from the Dance Kids, an exhausted but delighted Freda Hearty said “I am absolutely thrilled with how well the shows turned out, the feedback we have received has been overwhelming. It’s all about having fun and we had so much fun during ‘Let’s Dance’, we can’t wait for our Christmas show already. I would like to thank all the Dance Kids and their families, who are always so supportive.”

Preparations are now underway for the Dance Kids annual Christmas show, which will take place in An Tàin Arts Centre in December. New members are always welcome at Dance Kids classes, for further information contact Freda Hearty on 042-9339797. Dance Kids classes are an excellent way for kids to learn many talents in the field of dance, drama and song. They create an excellent opportunity for children to grow in confidence, perform on stage, become active, make friends and most importantly have fun!
