Alderley & Wilmslow Musical Theatre Company is an adult society dedicated to the staging of musical theatre shows. Our current membership ranges from 16 to 70 and we come together to put on high quality musical productions and to have fun while we are doing it! We sometimes have under-16s in our productions if there is a need for children in a particular show or if they are dancers.
We meet rehearse, meet and perform in various locations in Wilmslow and the surrounding area.
The society is run by a committee of playing and non-playing society members.
The committee are elected by the membership at the Annual AGM.
While we are an adult society, we take our responsibilities towards the safety and welfare of young people very seriously. We therefore have a co-opted Child Protection Officer.

Dance offers something for everyone at this age. Dance gives a sense of physical co-ordination, good posture and balance and improves confidence. It also exercises the mind in an effort of concentration completely different to that required for school studies.
This class introduces basic ballet for little girls in a fun way. As we all know, little girls love to dream of becoming a ballerina, a pink ballet leotard, skirt and dainty shoes all help to make the dream come true!
We do little ballet runs around the room holding our skirts out wide, little turns with our arms up high, we point and flex our toes and skip and dance until our hearts content.
Movement to music, mime, suppleness exercises, modern dancing and singing are incorporated into the lesson to provide plenty of variety and keep the classes fun.
