Twenty very excited little dancers, aged from 3 to 12 years, performed to a delighted audience of parents, grandparents, extended family and friends at the New Vision Ministries on May 31. This show, entitled ‘Glitz and Glam,’ was Creative Studio Boutique’s second annual dance recital and once again program director, Stacey Adderley, had worked her magic in transforming one of the rooms into a virtual theatre with a definite atmosphere of ‘glitz and glam.’
First on stage were the youngest performers the ‘Dancin Darlins’ performing to the song ‘Baby,Baby’ and looking absolutely adorable in their fuchsia pink sparkly tutus which they were obviously proud to be wearing. Later the same little group of four performed another routine this time hugging teddy bears. They were absolutely adorable.
The 5 to 6-year-old ‘Little Ballerinas’, 7 to 8-year-old ‘Dancin Divas’ and 10 to 12-year-old ‘Show Stoppers’ were all outfitted in very attractive costumes of a paler pink. All the dances in the first half showcased the children’s ballet skills with the ‘Dancin Divas’ adding some gymnastic poses in their dance performed to ‘The Power of Love’.
In the second half of the programme each group performed again to show their tap dancing skills. While the younger performers made a valiant effort, showing off what they had learnt, the older students were understandably more advanced and able to demonstrate more of the heel and toe tap dancing skills.
At the close of the program all performers came onstage for the finale and then were joined by their director, Ms. Adderley, who was visibly proud of all her little performers and who gave a vote of thanks to the audience and all of the parents and volunteers who had helped make this recital a memorable one for this performance was the result of a year’s dedication and hard work from not only the students but also the parents who were all obviously extremely proud of their little performers. It was certainly a delightful show and gratifying to see these young children participating in this delightful art form.
Ms. Adderley’s firm belief is that; “We are all born creative but if we neglect to develop and strengthen these skills our creativity becomes inhibited.” She states that; “Creative Studio Boutique believes in capturing a child at any age and introducing them to the art world through various channels and mechanisms. By assisting and encouraging a child’s creativity you set the stage for endless opportunities for that child’s imagination.”
