Thurrock award winners!
THE popular team at TipToe Stage School have added another string to their bow by being recognised at the National Entertainment Awards which were held at the Civic Hall last weekend.
Following their performances at the prestigious ceremony, they scooped the main award for Best Dance School, with pupils and the teaching team taking to the stage to make their speech.
This recognition couldn’t have come at a busier time as this coming weekend the school premiers their main show – “Dance Magic” – at the Towngate Theatre on Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 October.
Commenting on the award, the school’s principal, Julie Barker, said “When they called out our name I was in shock, for it was a really tough category.
“TipToe are lucky to be nominated for many industry awards and we are always grateful to be recognised, but this is the icing on cake for us. To be awarded “Best Dance School” is further endorsement that I have the best teaching team around at TipToe – my Vice Principal’s Sam, Quin, Lauren, my Festival Captain Elena and my whole teaching team, Kaz, Dan, Alice, Pip, Rhianna, Chelsea, Kerys.
“But we’d not be able to teach if we didn’t have the most committed, enthusiastic and talented bunch of pupils so this is equally for them as well. Every single person, from the babies to our Adult Tappers, are just wonderful. Thank you all”.
