Reviews

Best show that has come to my school in 10 years, the teachers liked it and the children loved it, always hard to please both crowds but this show did both. Renee Shaw, Principal, John Henderson Elementary
We had the very great pleasure of presenting Grupo America in March 2010. The show is professional, energetic, colourful and highly recommended. Lake District Arts Council
An inspiring and informative performance for adults and teens. Tom Atkinson, Surrey Learning Centre
