SHAPE Dance celebrates 40 years of success with extra performance!

This year’s SHAPE Dance Show at The Core has been a sell-out, almost from the minute the tickets were first released. To ensure that as many people as possible get a chance see the show, SHAPE and The Core are delighted to announce a further performance will take place at 1pm on Saturday 22 January 2011.

Parents, friends and families have queued for hours each Saturday during December to make sure they got hold of a ticket. Now, for the first time in years, people from Corby’s wider communities will have the opportunity to see a SHAPE performance. 

Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Pat Fawcett, said: 'The SHAPE show has been running for an amazing 40 years and yet again has been sell out performance so it is great news that people can now come and enjoy the extra show that is being put on.  These performances depict exactly what the Core is and that is a community theatre. So to all of the dancers, break a leg and we hope you enjoy every minute of your performance at your theatre'.

Corby Borough Council’s SHAPE Dance scheme has been delivering Tap, Ballet and Modern dance lessons throughout Corby for 40 years. The classes are for children and young people aged between 4 and 23 years, and this year has seen the introduction of two Adult Tap classes. The annual show, taking place at The Core for the first time, will include elements from Circus, Glee, Sweet Charity, Fame and The Princess and The Frog. Come along, support your local dance group and enjoy a great show!
