The Senior Cabaret Troupe & Showcase Teams perform at various shows and Galas and most recently danced at King Georges Hall for the Lions Christmas Party with honoured Guest the Mayor of Blackburn and provided the entertainment for Blackburn India League with our next show being in September 2019 for a Vegas Night. Pupils were also given the opportunity to work with Breaking Tradition Professional Group and performed in their show QUEST.
