Dancers from the Kelly Shirley School of Dance, sponsored by Booths, and based at their studio in Burscough have once again been performing at one of their favourite venues, the Liverpool Empire.

40 dancers spent the afternoon of the 22nd April backstage at the Empire preparing for the evening performance of ‘Smile Together’. The dancers were lucky enough to be invited to perform 3 routines throughout the show, and enjoyed every moment on stage. The response from the audience was fantastic, and even the Liverpool Empire Stage Crew rushed to the wings to watch the dancers routines.

The host for the evening, Juice FM’s Leanne Campbell described the dancers as ‘tremendous, breath-taking and fantastic’. The dancer’s performances were the talk of the show. Show organiser Sharon Collins, said ‘The dancers from the Kelly Shirley School of Dance are amazing, the level of technical ability in such a wide age range of students is fantastic – they can always be relied upon to bring a real wow factor to any show!”

School Principal Kelly Tobin said ‘I am extremely proud of all my dancers – they work hard and are very dedicated. They love to perform at the Liverpool Empire and were proud to be a part of a great show like Smile Together’

The Kelly Shirley School of Dance offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz, Show work, Competition work, Irish, Vocal and Drama coaching, Acrobatics and Pas de Deux for boys and girls of all abilities aged 18 months -21 years. The students are in training at the moment for this full programme of shows and competitions during 2012, and for the annual dance school show which will take place in July.
