Annual Production



June 2021 Production

Our annual production gives students a chance to demonstrate to parents and friends how they have progressed throughout the year and a chance to share their love of dance with an audience!  Performing gives students increased confidence and self-esteem.

Due to the pandemic, we are not able to gather in a theatre this year, so we have re-imagined this year’s performance experience!  We will be filming dancers at the studio during the last 2 weeks of May (during class time) and will create a show video to share with family and friends!  More information will be available soon!

Students in our full-year classes will have the opportunity to participate in our year-end show.  Exam classes are not included as the examination is considered their performance.  Our PreSchool dancers and Adults also do not participate as their classes are run in shorter sessions.

We just wanted to pass along our thanks for such a great show yesterday!  Grace has thoroughly enjoyed her time at CSD over the past two years and it has been so rewarding for us as parents to see her grow so much as a dancer over this time. All of the staff that Grace has come in contact with, through regular classes and Company, have been exceptional. We have seen a change in her and her desire to dance and we know that is a result of the hard work that you and your staff have put in to making both class and rehearsal time not only an opportunity to learn but also an opportunity to share the love of dance.Last night’s show was a great example of the welcoming and inspiring dance community that you have worked so hard to provide. We are feeling very lucky to have this opportunity for Grace and just wanted to add our congratulations to such a momentous anniversary! We are looking forward to many more years of dance with CSD!

Hi Christine,  I hope you are taking time to bask in the many compliments I bet you are receiving.  Let me add mine!  I was so thrilled to see Ainsley perform in the weekend shows.  I can’t speak highly enough about the quality of the production, the costumes, the music….and the creativity of the choreography.  The show was highly entertaining from beginning to end.  I loved the whole thing — and the fact that my own daughter was able to perform in such an amazing production was truly thrilling.  Thank you so much to her teachers for introducing her to the world of dance, and especially, for recognizing her for Outstanding Achievement.  That means a lot to Ainsley. Again, hats off to you and your staff for a job amazingly well done.   Thank you!

Congratulations on an exceptional recital last night. The first half especially was truly an achievement,especially for the main girls. Well done. Our family has been involved with and attended many recitals and this was definitely the best to date. You’ve raised the bar.

The 2008 performances were really top notch. All of my family has worked in theatre – my parents, for all of their lives. Everyone was fully impressed. We all agreed that it was in a different league than many other performances of its kind.

Thank you for the incredible efforts you and your staff went to in putting together such a fantastic Production!  It really was impressive.  I was remarking to a friend of mine who also has a child in CSD how you make all the children look good.  Every dance had a professional quality to it. I have found this to be the case in every production I have had the pleasure of seeing over the past four years.  The dances are engaging and evoke a range of emotions on the part of the audience—they have made me laugh and they have brought tears to my eyes.  The costumes are spectacular and really add to the entire experience.  Congratulations to you and your staff for your excellent work!  Our children are so lucky to have CSD.

Congratulations should go to you and your dance teachers. The show was artistically balanced on all levels…colour, texture, line…all the elements were fully integrated. As well, the teachers reflect a confidence and warmth that is passed on to all dancers. There is a human touch to your school that is most valuable to all the dancers who attend.
