Popular dance school returns to the stage

After a much longer break than expected, the students from a popular dance school will return to the stage next month to showcase their work for the first time since the pandemic.

Many of the students are familiar with performing, but for some this will be their first experience of being on stage in front of a live audience.

The show entitled The Let’s Dance show will be performed by The Louise Elizabeth School of Dance. The school has been in the town since 1988. It was founded by the dance school’s namesake and principal Louise Elizabeth Hebborn. Miss Hebborn, affectionately known as Miss Louise, has been teaching all forms of dance for over 33 years. Originally from Leicester, Miss Louise moved to Lowestoft with her husband when he secured a new job in the area.

“It was a huge decision to move away from my friends and family in Leicester at the time” she said.

“But, we love living on the east coast and we love the life we have made here together.”

When not teaching dance, Miss Louise travels up and down the country and occasionally abroad as a dance examiner.

As a former member of the Lowestoft Players, Miss Louise has performed in many Lowestoft Players’ productions as well as choreographing musicals, Christmas Spectaculars and reviews for the society. Scores of her pupils have performed in The Lowestoft Players’ musicals and pantomimes over the years.

“I’m very much looking forward to returning to the Players Theatre and bringing my dance school with me. We have 30 talented students with an age range of three years to adult” said Miss Louise.

“With the show just a few weeks away the dancers are very excited!”
