Welcome to our new Summer term newsletter with lots of information on up and coming events, opportunities and Showcase Family news
Miss Emma’s News
Welcome to this terms newsletter, we have had an incredible term over May and June with lots of success stories and ‘Firsts’ for our Showcase Family.
Our current terms focus for our students is to have fun, build performance style and prepare those students taking part in their external exams in July with Acrobatic Arts and IDTA / ISTD in November 2019.
We are very proud and privileged to also launch our ACRO PAD this month, the PAD will offer a huge amount of benefits to our students as well as igniting their enjoyment and passion in class through keeping up to date with the most modern and up to date performing arts equipment.
Highlights from our previous term have been many but to draw up on just a few:
1. A huge congratulations to all of our Singers and Singing Groups who took part in their ICMA external exam last term. The results from the exam board were incredible with all singers receiving 100% pass marks with many receiving Commended and the highest Grade of all ‘Highly Commended’ putting Showcase singers at the front of the exams results received locally.
2. Showcase Your Talent Night was a great success with students taking part in all performing arts genres showing their unique and creative talents in Singing, Dancing and Group performances. Congratulations to Rose Kite who was crowned the Showcase Your Talent 2019 Winners.
We have some very exciting opportunities coming up over the next couple of terms and our events programme has now been released and added to our website for you to see what we have planned for the remainder of this year and 2020.
The biggest opportunity that we have coming up is something that I am personally very proud of ‘Showcase Elite Management Agency’ we are now an approved leading theatre agent working with casting directors, producers, and tv industry professionals enabling our students who have a strong desire to have a career in performing arts to now access professional opportunities through our ‘Next Step’ Elite Training Programme.

Showcase Elite Management Agency Launch
