We held our tri-annual show “Do Your Thing” in Milton Keynes on Sunday 8th July 2012. It was a great success with 270 pupils taking part in 32 dances. There were more than 625 costumes made, bought and hired and a total of 36 volunteers back stages acting as chaperones, runners and all round supporters.
We will hopefully have a gallery of photos up soon for you all to see.
We hope that all involved, pupils, families and volunteers enjoyed themselves and had a great time. Below are some of the lovely feedback we’ve received:
Lee Duffy – Ambassadors Theatre
“Hello Jo, Many thanks for your email – the show was a roaring success with lots of positive feedback from patrons as well! I look forward to seeing you in 2015!”
Parents of pupils
“Well done Jo – another successful show. Thoroughly enjoyed it (its the only advantage I have found to having 3 children)! Feedback from relatives around us was that it was the best show ever – and I think I have to agree with them. Hope it has been worth all your hard work and stress.”
“Hi Jo, I just wanted to say congratulations on your amazing achievement last night. I cannot imagine the amount of work that went into organising such a performance but it was wonderful. You must be so proud! Our whole family were captivated through the whole show.”
“Hi Jo, I was just thinking back a few years to your early shows at the Civic Centre – how things have changed!! Congratulations to you and your team on another brilliant production, it’s always a special occasion.”
“Hi Jo, Wow! What a show that was – one of the best things I have seen at the theatre for a long time.”
Hi Jo, I just wanted to congratulate you on a truly amazing show, seeing the range of dances with all ages involved, the stunning costumes and the enjoyment on pupil’s faces really was fantastic.”
“Hi Jo, I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of myself and my family for your tremendous efforts prior to and during the show on Sunday evening….It was spectacular. The level of professionalism and dedication shown throughout the preparation and in the end production was evident, all the dancers performed beautifully (and seemed to be having such fun!), each set looked amazing, and you and your team of dedicated volunteers did a truly super job.”
“Dear Jo, We had a wonderful time at the show on Sunday – it was beautifully danced and a wonderful experience for us all. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you and well done on pulling it all off!”
“Dear Jo, This just a quick thank you for the amazing night you gave my girls the chance to be part of! It was truly an incredible show.”
“Hi Jo, Just to say congratulations on such a fantastic show on Sunday – we all thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Everything was so well organised, we could see the huge amount of work which Laura and yourself had put into the show. All the dances were fantastic in different ways and the costumes were amazing.”
“Dear JoAnn, Thank you so much for organising and putting on the fabulous show last Sunday. What a huge thing to contemplate and execute so professionally. We all really enjoyed every dance and would go to the show even if we didn’t have a child in it.”
