Lisa Dickinson, who founded the group, has trained dancers for a variety of events in the last two decades and the group has very much become part of the community.

One of the most popular shows is Pop in the Park, as part of March Summer Festival, where young people perform to the annual packed family event.

Dancers have also staged a host of shows in many different styles throughout the year at the BRAZA and the FE Centre with music from days gone by up to the modern era.
