Drenched in hairspray, coated in make-up, slapped with a smile and dressed to the nines; it can only mean one thing…
it’s showtime! - the most wonderful time of the year. And, for CMD, it rolls around THRICE! Yes, you read that right, CMD takes part in three shows every year! All of which give each and every member a chance to dance a host of different styles, levels and get-ups.
Every term brings a new show, and, therefore, an opportunity to show-off all of the hard work done in classes. All three of the shows are
amazing chances for members to build their confidence through performance, develop their personal dance style and, most importantly, have an absolute whale of a time!
Blood, sweat and tears? More like, lipstick, hairspray and smiles!
Please read below to see a more detailed breakdown of CMD’s show schedule.
It's the BIG one! For the past six years, at the end of Term 1, CMD has hosted its own show in the Warwick Arts Centre Theatre, and this year is no different! It is the biggest performance opportunity going: the chance to dance on a professional stage, in-front of a large audience, and show-off everything the club has worked on in the year so far, with a handful of CMD’s fellow dance societies also featuring in the show. All CMD classes get a dance in this show, giving every member plenty of audition-free routes to the stage, and, for those that want to push themselves, there are also two CMD auditioned numbers featured in the show – one of which is the big opening number!
In Term 2, CMD performs in Warwick Tap’s ‘PIZAZZ’, which is a massive showcase of the university’s dance scene, including performances from almost all of its dance-based clubs and societies. And again, it offers all members the chance to get on stage and dance!
END OF YEAR SHOWCASE
This is it, the end; the swansong for CMD’s finalists, and an amazing, albeit slightly emotional close to exam season and the academic year. CMD’s end-of-year showcase is held in the Warwick Arts Centre’s Studio Theatre. It, like the Term 1 Showcase, features other societies and offers all members a final chance to perform. But, this show also includes other dances from CMD’s year, like competition numbers, giving them an opportunity to perform on Warwick soil.
