The Joanne Banks Dancers are Unstoppable
20 July 2022
Hi everyone - what a busy, exhausting, exciting, amazing, memory-making couple of weeks it has been for us all at JBD. Our show last weekend was awesome. After lots of hard work, classes, rehearsals, sweat and tears we produced another spell-binding, gob-smacking show full of breath-taking dances, jaw-dropping musical theatre and belly-aching sketches!! You’ve all been a pleasure to work with and it’s been a delight to see each and every one of our pupils grow in confidence over the course of rehearsals. Thank you on behalf of my whole team for all of the lovely gifts and cards we’ve been so lucky to receive but most all we appreciate the positive comments and feedback - the ones we love most are from the parents telling us how much they’ve seen their own children grow and shine.
Our Awards Night and After Show Party on Friday was a wonderful night. So fabulous to see so many of our pupils and parents enjoying themselves on the dance floor!! Congratulations to all of the award winners - everyone was thoroughly deserved. The energy of the cabaret performers blew me away and showed that we don’t need a fancy theatre to put on a cracking show!! Well done to everyone who danced on Friday.
This week we will be winding down a little to accommodate for the expected heatwave but we will still be running all our classes and talking to you all about the exciting things that we have lined up - a Xmas Cabaret, a musical theatre production of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat and of course our 2023 show back at Darlington Hippodrome.
I am one very happy, proud (exhausted!) Dance Teacher today and had to tell you all how thankful I am that you all chose JBD and to let you know that the future is bright and exciting - we’ve only just scratched the surface of my ideas and your opportunities.
With love to you all - Joanne xxx
