Why kids and parents love CAC!
From doing the outreach performances in the past, I have learned that through my dancing, I can give a gift to people, and that the gift of me spending my time there to dance for those people is worth so much more than it I were performing at the Royal Opera House with perfect technique.
Adrianna, aged 16
At Creator’s Arts Centre I was given the same valuable experiences that another dance school may have offered, such as the chance to take ballet exams, the opportunity to perform in the community and the privilege to train to become a dance teacher, but at Creator’s those opportunities were experienced in an environment where discovering my individuality and performing to my personal best were of the upmost importance.
