On stage at the Royal Albert Hall

Students from a Slough dance academy have had their big moment on stage at the Royal Albert Hall.

The dancers from Creative Academy, a dance degree managed by the council and validated by The University of West London, had a memorable experience on stage on 5 November in the Dance Proms.

Creative Academy was chosen as one of only 20 acts to go through to the live performance, where they had their own dance showcase and then performed with the other dancers in a finale piece.

George Kirkham, Creative Academy manager, said: “It went really well, we opened the second act and there were 6,000 people in the audience. The whole event was excellent and really was a celebration of dance and young talent.

“The students from Creative Academy had a really positive experience and the whole event was diverse, inclusive and creative with performers from all over Europe and as far as Vietnam.”

Dance Proms is a partnership project between two of the world’s leading dance training and awarding bodies: the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), as well as the Royal Albert Hall, working together in celebration of dance and inspiring creativity.
