Dance UK Live 2018
For the past 15 years, we have supported Yorkhill Children’s Charity in Glasgow and are proud to announce this year, we raised a fantastic total of: £1250.58 .
This amazing sum was raised at 2 of our much loved annual events:
Dance UK LIVE 2017 , our all singing, all dancing showbiz production with a cast of 400!
and Dance UK’s Streetdance Convention 2017, our amazing event showcasing all our breakdancers in competition and performance with guest judge, Peter Maniam, founder of Random Aspekts Dance Company.
A few weeks ago, teachers and pupils at Dance UK Baillieston hosted this year’s Official Cheque Presentation and the lovely Suzanne came along to accept the cheque on the night on behalf of what is now Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity . All the pupils performed for Suzanne and a packed audience of friends and families too. It was a brilliant evening and everyone had a great time which you can see from the pictures.
The big cheque also went on tour to Dance UK Wishaw so check out if your wee one is in all these great shots taken on the day.
Suzanne, on behalf of the GCHC would like to thank everyone once again for all our efforts and generosity
Jacqui Wilson, Principal of Dance UK, would like to thank all the Pupils who were involved in the Summer Events…you are all amazing !
And finally a massive thank you as always to our amazing families who support this great cause every year…!

Roll on Dance UK LIVE 2018!

Annual Summer Show Spectacular
A big thanks to everyone involved in this year’s summer show ..a fabulous night at Motherwell Theatre… here is a clip from the show with music from the operetta Orpheus in the Underworld written by Jacques Offenbach and first performed in Paris 1858 however the dance style most associated with this music is much older. The Can-can dates back to the 1820s and has its roots in French social dance and early Parisien music hall. Dancers have been thrilling audiences across the world performing the can-can for almost two hundred years and I think our girls and choreographer, Susan Haldane have done a fantastic job of this classic dance style. It was an amazing opening night and we can’t wait to see their next two performances ..
There are still a few tickets left for the remaining Dance UK Live shows on 25th and 26th June 2017 so don’t miss out contact https://www.danceuk.co.uk for details
Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved in Dance UK Live 2017…
