A selection of the nice things people have said about us …

Jo, your girls did amazing job this week. #NotSurprised. Alex has honestly loved every day. No issues when picking him up and [he] always has a happy face. I know Footlights is act, sing, dance; but it’s so much more than that. Confidence, listening, following instructions, helping each other, supporting each other, making friends…this is what Alex gets out of Footlights. Thanks x

It was an incredible performance, it needs to be seen widely! What a powerful message.

I was honoured to watch a production of ‘Invisible’ today. It was one of the most moving pieces of drama I have ever watched. I cannot praise the actors/ directors/ production enough. Bravo to you all. The production will live with me forever. Thank-you so much.

A 5 star review.

Poppy has been going to Footlights Urmston for 10 months and loves it. The teachers are just wonderful and the school has a real family feel to it. Poppy’s confidence in herself has really grown and it has been so beneficial for her mixing with and being friends with [children of] all ages. The school has classes on singing, acting and dancing and Poppy really enjoys learning and getting better. A joy to see, and the end of year show was just brilliant. Roll on next year! Thank you Jo and team, you’re all fab. Highly recommend!!

Fantastic evening watching the ‘Invisible’ community performance last night. One of our young people after watching the play, disclosed about a takeaway that is giving away free food to young people and one of her friends, who is 11 years old meeting up with a 16-year-old boy. Fantastic discussions in the car home. Footlights, please keep up the great awareness work in Trafford.
