However, everything was fine on the night.  Yes the young people were nervous but they performed as if had been dancing on the Hippodrome stage all their lives.  The show was wonderful, with the stunning costumes and scenes.  Out in the audience, parents, siblings, family members and friends clapped whooped and encouraged everyone on stage.  The atmosphere was electric.

 At the end the young people came out for a curtain call and received a huge ovation!
