Bermuda Dance Academy held its first dance recital, dubbed “In The Movies,” at The Berkeley Institute Cafetorium on Saturday, June 11.

A spokesperson said, “Under the direction of owner and head teacher Nikia Manders, dancers aged 4 to 18 years old performed to popular movie soundtracks including “Annie” and “Frozen,” while, older dancers thrilled the audience with routines to “Drum Line”, “Hunger Games” and “Step Up.”

“Several students from The Berkeley Institute were featured as guest performers in the recital.

“The ambiance of the event remained on theme giving patrons the impression they were at the cinema. Popcorn and drinks were on sale and movie trailers played between acts.”


Nikia Manders said, “Our dancers worked tirelessly at practicing routines over the last few months in anticipation of this production. Overall, I’m pleased to say parents and audience members were treated to an exciting show highlighting both class and solo acts from a talented group of aspiring dancers.
