The two hour Alice in Wonderland themed show entitled “Welcome to the Mad House” was designed to showcase the talents of the MAD members.  There were group numbers, duets,  solos, drama pieces, plenty of singing and a fantastic range of different genres of dance, ballet, tap, modern, jazz, and street dance.

Cheryl Heuston has run MAD since its inception in 2013 and seen it grow from fifty to more than two hundred and fifty members with a team of four additional specialist teachers.  The classes take place in various locations in Marlborough and Ramsbury.
