Our main show is always an absolute treat where our students have the opportunity to dance on a professional stage to packed audiences. 

This show is a brand new revival of our 2004 Sea Cruise Boogie at Cleckheaton Town Hall with a cast of 150. In 2020, we will take audiences on the high seas for a world cruise of dance once again, only this time with more than double the cast and plenty more glitz and glamour!!
