VDSE & OB 2022 Annual Concert

This year we teamed up with our friends at OnBeat Dance Studios to produce a three set show that was so much fun! In Act 1 OnBeat presented their very own version of  The Fairy Doll, in Act 2 VDSE performed highlights from The Nutcracker (finally!) and Act 3 was an amazing theatrical showcase demonstrating the variety and depth of talent across our two schools. Well done everyone on a successful and entertaining show!
