At Stella Mann College we believe that it is vital to get the right balance between technical training and performance opportunities, where students are able to demonstrate their skills and grow as performers.
As a College, the end of each term culminates in an internal performance opportunity:
THE CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE
The Christmas Performance sees our students showcase what they have learnt in all dance and musical theatre disciplines. It is, also, an opportunity for our Third Years to hone their choreography skills.
THE EASTER PERFORMANCE
The Easter Performance provides an opportunity for a Musical Theatre focused performance piece.
THE SUMMER PERFORMANCE
Held at the impressive Alban Arena in St Albans, the Summer Performance is the largest show we stage. Every student in the College is featured in a wide range of pieces, demonstrating the skills they have honed throughout the year.
In addition to these performances we also engage in a number of external performances, which allow us to take groups of students to a variety of venues to gain an even more diverse experience of performing to different audiences. Recent external performances have included:
a celebration of local colleges, choirs and musical societies, held at the beautiful Grove Theatre, Dunstable.
the Grove Theatre also stages a celebration of local dance talent, to which we contribute a number of pieces.
IDEAL HOME SHOW EXHIBITION
held at Olympia, London, where we provide two performances to entertain their exhibition go-ers.
MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION VALENTINE’S BALL
this annual fundraising event, held at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel in London. Stella Mann College has provided entertainment, usually in the form of spectacular dance pieces, for a few years now.
the huge annual expo of dance colleges, schools and businesses attracts thousands of industry professionals and young dancers. This year it was attended by 24,000 people. For several years Stella Mann College has performed three dance pieces on the main stage in front of the huge crowds and also musical theatre pieces in the smaller Showcase Theatre. This is a great opportunity to represent the College in front of the rest of the dance community.
