THE GREATEST SHOW 2019 WAS A GREAT SUCCESS

TESTIMONIAL AFTER WATCHING OUR 2019 PRODUCTION: I just wanted to write a quick note to say both congratulations to everyone at Superarts and more importantly a massive thank you to you all for your hard work and what you have done for all the young people and especially our daughter, Nwarebea since she started Superarts. 
We can't even begin to find the words. Nwarebea had previously attended another dance school before we found out about Superarts. Though she liked dancing, she never felt happy there. However, just after a few weeks at Superarts, we saw a huge change. She would be dancing around the whole house, any opportunity she got. We've lost count the number of times our hearts have been in our mouths as she tries a new move from acro across the living room. 
At the show on the weekend, it suddenly all made sense. We were overwhelmed by all the young people in the show. They were absolutely brilliant. Everything was delivered at such a high level. 
Our family that came with us loved every moment. There was something for everyone. From our mums in their 70s down to our 4 year old son clapping away to Lion King.  
But what stood out most was the comments made by my older sisters. They kept commenting on how the show seemed to embody the family values of the school and reminded them of our own childhood growing up in the area. We bounced all the way home and Nwarebea's cousin's who also attend another school where they live, were saying they wished they could come down to London to dance at Superarts. 
Thank you again. We're looking forward to the next show in two years.

Thanks to all the people, adults, young people, choreographers, parents, volunteers who made and make it possible every week.
