A DANCE school will showcase their students' skills at Cwmbran Congress Theatre show next week.

The Charlotte May Academy will visit the venue for five nights between Tuesday, October 31 and Saturday, November 4.

The school, based in Pontypool, has been established for over 30 years and became Charlotte May Academy in early 2012. With over one hundred students it’s fast becoming one of South Wales’ leading dance schools.

Following the success of previous productions, ‘All You Need Is Love’ ’Smile’ and ‘Rhapsody’ the award-winning academy will return with their new show EMPIRE.

With over one hundred students, including West End professionals and National Champions, EMPIRE will be a night to feast your eyes upon with dance routines set to the tracks of classic artists Prince, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Sammy Davies Jr.

Charlotte May Moulton-Davies has years of experience teaching children as young as two years of age and in professional colleges in London and has worked as a professional dancer and West End performer.

"After such a successful year for Charlotte May Academy, I’m so excited for our fourth and best show yet," she said.

"Our pupils are multi-talented and the show includes something for everyone to enjoy."

In 2015, the principal also became an examiner with the Associated Board of Dance, making her one of the youngest examiners in the country.

This year, three of the dance school's pupils - Elle Parker, Eve Carter and Austin Kendall- won Welsh Championship titles in ballet, modern jazz and song and dance which means they will represent Wales in national competitions next year.

With EMPIRE, audiences can expect to be immersed in the sounds of the Big Apple with styles ranging from classical ballet, tap, jazz modern and hip hop, to acrobatics and musical theatre.

All shows will start at 7pm with an additional show on November 4 at 2pm. Tickets are priced at £10.50 with a £9.50 concession.
