‘I have been with Manic Stage Productions since June 2013, Manic has provided me with the opportunity to work in a professional environment aswell as to maintain my level of dancing inbetween other dance contracts abroad. 

The weekly professional classes help me to keep building upon my training, increase my flexibility, push myself to pick up routines quickly and remember any we have previously learnt.  Manic has such a wide variety of dances and shows to offer their clients you need to have a good memory to remember them all! 
I have taken part in Michael Jackson tribute shows, South Coast Fashion Week launch, The New Southsea Show, Charity events at the Kings Theatre, A Burlesque show at Grosvenor G Casino, Stilt Walking and Promotional work for Fontwell Race Course. Stilt Walking and a Showgirl Performance at the Spinnaker Tower and Mary Rose Museum. I regularly model for Bridal and Wedding shows and my favourite so far was a Halloween performance with the one and only Miss G!
Manic really is a great team to be part of, I look forward to class every Tuesday and thoroughly enjoy every performance opportunity I have had.
So come along and join the fun! 2014 is going to be a great year for the team and if you love to dance and get paid then this opportunity is NOT to be missed

Looking Back On A Fantastic Year

2013 Round Up

I thought it fitting to spend a moment looking back on an incredible year. We are already well in to January 2014 and have lots of amazing bookings coming in thick and fast! 
Before we tell you all about what the future has in store for us lets take a little trip down memory lane!

Read about our highlights of a wonderful year

We started last year with an exciting nomination and shortlist for The Business Excellence Awards which gave us our enthusiastic and very determined approach to grow, gain more clients and evolve Manic Stage Productions even further throughout 2013. We are excited to say that 12 months later we could not be happier with our achievements.

Theres no better way to grow than to add more wonderful talented individuals to the team! From our auditions we certainly gained some very loyal, beautiful, professional, dancers, models and speciality acts and artists who we are pleased to say are all still with us to start a very busy 2014 :-)

After a successful few years supplying our fun Manic Kids Dance Parties to Havant Horizon Leisure Centre it was amazing to be asked to replicate this magical formula at their busy sister centre in Waterlooville. Our relationship with both venues is still going strong and we are looking forward to another busy party year.

A highlight of 2013 was being approached by Fontwell Racecourse to supply them with entertainment, promotional staff and much much more. The relationship has grown from strength to strength and we already have many more dates booked in the diary to make 2014 race days even bigger and better! Did you know they spotted us on stage at The Guildhall when we performed for last years Business Excellence Awards!

With all these exciting new developments taking shape through the early part of last year we decided it was the right time to move into a new phase and create a head quarters for our busy business. We took up residency in the iconic Clock Tower on Castle Road! This decision was by far the best one ever made and has really helped to make Manic more visible to potential clients.

Manic get to perform and work with some fantastic acts and artist but it was a great pleasure to share the stage with a celebrity back in June. Amy Childs was lovely and we got to entertain her and the CAN Management team along with Lee Stafford at the prestigious Beauty Awards!

With our sights set on South Coast domination it was a massive tick in the box when we were booked to entertain at the South Coast Fashion Week Launch Party in Bournemouth. Check out the team in this VIDEO of the event.

The much loved and very much missed Southsea Show made an incredible come back in August last year after a 7 year absence and Manic Stage Productions were involved in its success! Nicole helped produce the Saturday Night Seaside Special which pinnacled the 1st day of fun family entertainment and featured our entertainment team The SHOW Girlz.
Heres a VIDEO of its highlights.

Our expertise is often called upon across the city for many events, workshops, after school clubs and much more. One thing we love to get asked to do is help judge at talent shows across the South Coast and discover some of the publics hidden talents. Grosvenor Casino talent contest was full of variety and fun and the team found it really very difficult to pick a winner.

Due to the success of our input to the Southsea Show we were heavily encouraged to start producing more live entertainment events through the city. We had successfully proved that we had the knowledge, contacts and talent to pull some fabulous evenings off and so we set to work on our 1st (of hopefully many) themed nights!

One thing that will always be important to Manic and the team is giving something back to the community who have always supported us! We do this by regularly performing for charity events across the year. Children in Need is a national event and it is always a great honour to be involved in. You can imagine our delight when our performance was filmed for the live broadcast on the BBC!

Who would have thought that over the space of just one year we would established ourselves so firmly within the corporate and business world. The year culminated with our team being involved in some very established events including The Shaping Portsmouth Conference, Global Entrepreneur Week and The National Business Show.

Wow well what can I say? Its been an incredible year for Manic Stage Productions and the whole team! We have grown in so many ways and we can't wait for all the exciting promotions, performances and master classes 2014 already has lined up for us! 
Hard work, commitment and integrity really do pay off ....oh and having the best team of super loyal, beautiful and talented individuals of course always helps #manicteamlove Thank you to our many clients, friends and our army of manic ambassadors your support, belief and constant opportunities are truly overwhelming! 
Lastly non of this would have ever been possible without a friendship that has already spanned well over a decade..... nothing is impossible when you have your best friend as your business partner! Heres to a prosperous and happy 2014
