Christmas Show

Christmas Show

Monday 11 & Tuesday 12 December

In 2022 Dance Base saw the return of the festive extravaganza! The legendary Christmas Show showcased the dancers and celebrated the end of the term in style. This year we are delighted to bring it back again.


During Autumn Term our teachers work with their class on a fun routine that will be presented during this December spectacular. Friends and family are invited to come along for a wonderful evening of performances hosted by Dance Base Artistic Director Tony Mills.


Purchasing a ticket will help cover the costs of presenting this show and if you feel able to pay more, there’s a price that includes a donation to Dance Base. We appreciate these are tough times for many people and our own costs are rising. If you can afford to donate today, we would be very grateful, and it’ll make a real difference to our programmes and participants.


Come along to support our dancers and enjoy an evening of live dance performances. There will be a bar open before and after the show, with time to enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
