Dance Performance Group
Our Performance Group participate in live shows and carnivals across the UK and Europe. We are a mixed skill level group that delivers high quality shows as well as opportunities for personal development. A close knit community we have an emphasis on supporting each other as we develop our dance performances.
LSS have helped develop many professional samba dancers over the years with our highly skilled and supportive teachers. They will help you grow your confidence and expand your skill set as a performer. The group has many exciting opportunity from TV appearances to private shows.
Joining The Performance Group:
The performance team is an great aspiration for many dancers within the school. The normal process is that the dance team will notice you within the regular weekly classes and discuss the process with you. This involves explaining the requirements of the performance group and invitation to trial rehearsal, The community nature of the group means it only regular LSS attending members who will be invited to join.
If you would like to discuss this process further then feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or Speak with Asia, Carron, Hannah, Katya, Lucy or Nathan.
If you’d like to take part in carnivals/parades year round but don’t feel the performance group rehearsals is for you, you can also ask to be put on a dancers mailing list by contacting the dance team. When opportunities arise we open out invitations to take part through this mailing list. You just need to let us know you want to be on it.
