We have a very busy end of term so please take a few moments to read:-
RAD Ballet Examinations -3rd / 4th July
IDTA Tap Examinations and Freestyle Jazz Medal tests - 10th / 11th July
All examination Timetables can be accessed on the Dance School Website MEMBERS AREA.
Parents of Tap and Jazz examination pupils have been emailed the password to access the area. Please contact Jo
if you have any queries.
All parents of Ballet Examination Pupils have been given an individual letter regarding their child's examination studio practice and examination details.
Please ensure your child has the correct clean, well fitting uniform for their examination. We do not have the shop available at Clyst Heath this Saturday (8th June) but mum will be back the following week.
Workshops - SUNDAY 14th July
2.30-3.30pm Age 5-8 years
3.30-4.30pm Age 9-14 years
Places are filling fast so please contact Jo ASAP if you would like to come along.
An opportunity to come along and find out more about the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus that we will be offering from September and have some class experience with our qualified teacher Miss Caroline. We will be giving a short introduction to parents and children who attend to explain where the programme fits within dance teaching.
THESE CLASSES ARE NOT GENERALLY AIMED AS STAND ALONE CLASSES AND TO GAIN THE BEST PROGRESS WE WOULD NORMALLY EXPECT CHILDREN TO BE TAKING BALLET OR FREESTYLE CLASSES ALONGSIDE ACRO.
(The classes will be taught from basics in a safe environment with staged progressions monitored continuously. Flexibility and core strength will enhance dance technique learnt in other classes. Please note that it will take time to secure competencies in this area and these classes will not be included this year in the November show.)
PLACES STILL AVAILABLE
19th - 23rd August
We are taking bookings now for summer school which will have a DISNEY theme this year. Further details are here.
Everyone welcome from 5-13 years (in groups). Fully costumed show for parents at the end of the week.

Thursday 27th June - Grade 4 and 8 Ballet
Monday 8th July - All Classes

(Open classes, with the exception of Saturday, are primarily to show exam work before the exams. All other classes are working on show work so we are saving that until their performances later in the year.)
Please note that ALL CLASSES on MONDAY 8TH JULY will take place at ST. LAWRENCE CHURCH HALL.
(This will give Advanced Jazz students the opportunity to space their dances in the hall prior to exams the following 2 days.)
Full School Show - November 2019
Parent Agreement Forms MUST be returned prior to the Summer break
In the next couple of weeks your child will be given a form to complete and return by yourselves regarding permission to perform in the show and costume hire fees. ALL FORMS need to be returned with payments before the end of the term in July. We have a colossal amount of work to do behind the scenes checking what licensing / chaperoning etc.. we require, which I will be working on during the summer holiday. PLEASE PLEASE RETURN FORMS PROMPTLY so we don't need to waste your child's valuable teaching time chasing forms.
I will speak to parents of new children in the Saturday classes regarding arrangements at the OPEN DAY on SATURDAY 22nd JUNE.
