The aim of the SSP Dance Shows is to inspire more pupils to be active through dance by providing an opportunity for them to represent their school in an exciting dance show.

This years two SSP dance shows will be titled “Top of the Pops” and will include a run down of dances to popular music from the 60’s to modern day.  Schools are invited to enter to perform a dance based around any popular hit of their choice.

Please could schools discuss their music ideas with the SSP Dance Coordinator Lisa McGreevy to confirm that it is suitable and that no other school has already chosen the song/artist or idea.

To enter a performance into the show please complete the below booking form.
