Our School term timetable will resume on Tuesday 5 September 2017 until then we have Saturday Ballet classes (see below).
When we do return the classes doing our Annual Dance Spectacular Show at the Beck Theatre on 21 October will then be working hard towards polishing their performances. Tickets for the Show are now available from the Beck Theatre. The graded RAD Ballet and ISTD Tap classes not doing the Show will continue as normal.
Until then enjoy your summer and have a lovely time with your friends and family.

Ballet Exam Round – Awesome Results
The March Ballet examination round results are now with us. Wow! What a successful round with 60% gaining Distinctions and 40% Merits across Primary to Grade 4. So, well done to all of our pupils and well done to our teachers. The results will be given out by our teachers in the classes with their certificates.
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 the latest Bloch Hotpants in velvet and glitzy foil well worth looking at as well as the latest Bloch and Capezio designer leotards – all at competitive prices.
