SSD students love performing, and we aim to give them as many opportunities as possible to do this.
Our Performance Team take part in many charity events throughout the year, as well as competing at festivals across the south. For more information on SSD Performers, please click here.
Other students at SSD do also take part in regular performances, including our own inhouse dance showcase every 2-3 years, and annually at our end of year Celebration and Presentation Evening.
Performances with SSD take us up and down the country and we strive to make each individual performance a memory that lasts a lifetime, from our youngest to our eldest. Our students perform a host of upbeat and fun, sophisticated and elegant routines at the most amazing venues.
