Peak dance and theatre school celebrates 30th birthday

Peak Performance Dance and Theatre School is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019.

Principal Jill Ferguson says she originally started out as the Winster Theatre School with the aim of offering training in every performance subject.

Since those early days she has trained thousands of  young people.

“Over the years, a lot of our pupils from as young as three have remained with us until leaving for university. Quite a few have gone into related professions and still keep in touch,” said Jill, pictured above right, with the rest of the school’s teaching team Rosalia Pilsworth and Andrew Edwards.

The next major dance show Dazzle Me! at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield, will highlight the past 30 years.
