Dear fellow dance teacher,

Cruise Performers specialises in offering your school various performing opportunities on cruise ships by allowing your pupils to showcase their talents to guests onboard and giving them a chance to gain a true performing experience in front of an international audience (rather than just family members and friends).


As a Full time Dance Teacher, I have been aware of the need to find further challenges and experiences for my own dance school. Since our first appearance on a London stage back in 1999, we have endeavoured to find new opportunities for our pupils to gain experience. It was with this in mind that using my experience in the cruise industry, I arranged for my own studio to perform onboard the cruise ship MSC Armonia, in May of 2005 and what a fabulous experience for my dancers and their parents it was!


  • Only one dance school per ship sailing (you won’t be sharing this experience with other schools)

  • Performances onboard MSC Ships will be 4 shows throughout the week either just before or just after the main evening’s cabaret. 

  • Three rehearsal time slots for groups on MSC Ships (We felt the lack of rehearsal times at other shows was a disadvantage to the pupils)

  • We to offer a question and answer session between the ships professional dancers and school performers, giving the pupils further insight into life as a performer at sea.

  • We won’t sell you a T-shirt or Hat!


Cruise Performers will visit your studio at a time convenient to yourselves and present to your parents and pupils to explain how the cruise holiday works from start to finish, answering the many questions that parents want to ask. If you decide to book a cruise we will arrange to take you on a day visit onboard the ship in question where you’ll be able to view the stage, cabins, restaurants and other facilities at your leisure. All of this is at no expense to yourselves - we’ll even treat you to lunch onboard your chosen ship!


I sincerely hope, that from a dance teachers perspective, you can realise how we at Cruise Performers have set in place a much more pupil-friendly experience, moving away from ‘conveyer belt’ productions and hoping to create a truly unique experience onboard ship for your group.
