Knox group of companies helps local dance academy celebrate success

The Knox group of companies is delighted to announce that it is the proud sponsor of Gena’s Dance Academy’s upcoming event at the Gaiety Theatre in the Isle of Man from May 27th to the 28th. The event which promises attendees award-winning choreography from the Island’s leading dance school has been designed to celebrate their 15 year anniversary.

The event which has been months in rehearsal for the dance school will showcase dazzling performances from over 250 young dancers and singers in a celebration of their success. The academy teaches a wide variety of dance disciplines including; Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Tap, Street, Jazz, Cheer and Acro dance. The show will also feature a special megamix performance by ‘Sing Up West’, who offer singing and musical theatre performance classes at the dance studio.

Speaking about the sponsorship, Tim Eve, Deputy Chairman, Knox group of companies commented:

“We’re strong supporters of the Island’s local creative community, it is an important part of our ethos, and so we were pleased to get involved and support Gena and everyone involved. It takes a huge collective effort and a lot of commitment and hard work to put on events of this calibre, from the dance academy teachers through to the performers themselves, not to mention their parents! On behalf of everyone at the Knox group of companies, we wish them all the very best of luck, and if past shows are anything to go by, I’m sure this one will be another sell-out success!”

The Knox group of companies are no strangers to the local arts community, having sponsored Gena’s Dance Academy events regularly for a number of years. Additionally, they have also supported them in travelling off Island to compete at International events, such as the International Festival of Dance and Performing Arts (IFDPA) dance championships in Disneyland® Paris in 2019.
