LIGHTHOUSE FESTIVAL 31/5/16
NLDA entered children for solos and duets at the ‘Fierce and Fearless ‘ dance festival at The Lighthouse theatre in Anfield on 31st May. The girls were very successful, walking away with a lot of medals. The staff are very proud of all who took part.
All enjoyed the day and look forward to their next festival which is in St Helens on 22nd and 25th July.
ONE SMALL STEP 4/6/16
Saturday 4th June saw 70 pupils from NLDA taking part in the ‘One Small Step’ charity show in aid of North West Cancer Research and Clatterbridge Hospital. We performed in conjunction with Glenda Hill Theatre Works and it was a fabulous show, featuring pupils aged 6-21 in a variety of dance styles. The audience was thrilled with every routine and both sets of parents supported both schools equally making it a fabulous night and atmosphere. The night was made even more special by celebrating with Miss Hayley and Miss Courtney as they both near their due date for their babies.
We look forward to taking part next year and await hearing the total amount raised.
LONDON O2 ARENA TRIP 25-27/6/16

Our trip starts on Saturday 25th June and we return on Monday 27th June. The group will be staying in a hotel and we will be having a party after the show to celebrate.
It will be a very exciting event for all taking part, and will post some photos of the event as soon as we can.
