DANCING WITH CHOIRS
Satellites performed four pieces accompanied by the Just Sing choir in Lighthouse Concert Hall on Saturday 10th March 2018.
The event raised an unbelievable £21,000 for Wessex Heartbeat and Dorset Cancer Care!
John Munro, CEO of Wessex Heartbeat, said: “The show was a real success and we would like to extend our huge gratitude to all the dance schools and choirs which gave their time and performed so wonderfully’
Eve Went, one of the founders of Dorset Cancer Care Foundation, agreed, saying “The show was mesmerising. Seeing classical ballet performed to the Ellie Goulding song ‘How Long will I love you?’ and Jazz dancers accompanied by a choir singing iconic Michael Jackson songs was truly special and it was no surprise when all the performers were given a standing ovation at the end of the show.”
Both pieces given a special mention were Centre Stage performances!
‘INDIGO’ AT THE o2 ARENA, LONDON
Satellites performed with West End Dreams at London O2 Arena’s Indigo on Sunday 6th May. Following this performance, the compere was so impressed with Satellites’ talent and professionalism that he has invited them to compete and perform in the South East Entertainment Awards on January 27th 2019.
