Dance Spectacular Show
Well we’re now into the Summer term (18 April – 21 July) and looking forward to our annual Dance Spectacular Show, at the Beck Theatre in Hayes, held during the October half term. Dance routines are now being choreographed by our teachers and pupils are beginning to learn these culminating in performances in front of a packed audience.
Parents please note we are now taking registrations for this Dance Show. The forms can be obtained from our shop counter or via our ‘Dance Show 2017’ page. Payment can be made at the shop. There is a cut off date to register which is 20 May. This allows us to order the correct number of dance/musical theatre costumes. Once the costumes have been ordered if there are late entries we may not be able to obtain the costume or the price may be at a higher rate for parents.
As usual further information can be found on our ‘Dance Spectacular Show’ page
Summer Holiday Schools
Our annual 5 day Monday-Friday Summer Schools for aged 6-16 years will soon be upon us and these are currently being prepared by our teaching staff. We already have a number of children booked onto these so if you are contemplating please do not leave too long as places are running out. A £50 deposit secures your child’s place for the week.
Intensive Ballet Summer School 7-11 August
Musical Theatre Summer School 14-18 August
More detailed information about these can be found on our ‘Summer School Activity’ page. These two Summer Schools perform in both our Matinee and Evening Dance Spectacular Show
Saturday Musical Theatre Class
Due to pupils moving up to higher age group classes we now have limited spaces on our Saturday 3-5pm Musical Theatre class. You can pay weekly to see if your child likes this class for the first 3 weeks then its termly fees. There’ll only be a few weeks left of this term after that’s done. This class performs in both our Matinee and Evening Dance Spectacular Show.
We have also been busy on the Dance Festival front, these being held over half terms and school holidays. As usual we have an abundance of medals and placings in both Dance and Musical Theatre sections. I must say a big thank you to Sophie, Rachel, and Georgia for their choreography. As usual these routines hit the mark for our pupils to display their ability and with their flawless performances the outcome is always a very high standard.
More information on the pupils, their results and pictures can be found on our ‘Dance Festival’ page. However there are a few pictures below of just some of our entrants.
To any potential new parents and pupils I would like to emphasise that we do run LAMDA classes during the week and at weekends. For those that don’t know LAMDA stands for ‘London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts’.
These classes are designed to improve children’s elocution, articulation, acting and performance in order to give them the skills and confidence to succeed in life. Our teachers are professionally trained to coach children in these skill sets which culminates in globally, OFQUAL recognised examinations. These examinations at Level 3 are also included in the current UCAS tariff, with a Grade 6 Diploma currently being 40 points. They are very popular classes and all of these perform at the Beck Theatre in our Dance Spectacular Show.
New Adult Evening Classes
We also have two new adult classes, adult Jazz on Tuesdays 7.30-8.30pm, and adult Streetdance Sundays 12.30-1.30pm. Both are pay as you go. Come along and give them a go, they’re fun and energetic so a good way to tone up and get your heart pumping.
Our Dance shop now has a new range of Pineapple bags and designer leotards at very competitive prices (Please see below) so please feel free to come and have a browse.
