The Wildcat Kittens took their chance to shine last weekend with a fantastic show at Ossett Town Hall last Friday night.
More than 130 young people from the Kittens, Holy Trinity and South Parade Primary Schools wowed the crowds with the ‘Time to Shine’ show that has been over three months in the making.
Since September the 120 girls and 12 boys involved in the show have been taught routines in various dance styles including cheerleading, street and contemporary dance, and put all their hard work into practise in front of friends and family.
The Wildcats Dolls also performed at what was the culmination of a successful 2011 for the biggest and best dance academy in rugby league.
Children aged between 3 and 17 performed at all the Wildcats home matches, six gala events, five city centre performances and also performed alongside the Castleford Tigers Dance Academy at the PROBIZ Collisseum.
Community Dance Development Officer, Jodie Travis, organised and choreographed the show and was delighted with all the young people who performed.
“Friday night’s show was a great way to end 2011 for the Wildcat Kittens and all the dancers really did take their ‘Time to Shine’.
“It has been another fantastic year in which the Dance Academy has worked with almost 250 young people and next year we are obviously aiming to better that and grow the Dance Academy even further.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the dancers for their commitment and hard work throughout the year; to the parents for bringing their children to all the rehearsals, matchdays and shows we’ve put on; and to thank all the volunteers who have helped throughout the year.”
Enrolment for 2012 is on Wednesday 4th January between 4.30 and 6.30pm in CATS Bar with classes held every Monday and Wednesday night for boys and girls aged between 3 and 17.
