Well we have been busy! Lots of festive fundraising and a fabulous Christmas Concert to finish off a wonderful term.
IDTA Theatre Awards, Here We Come
We were delighted to announce that following our November exam sessions, 9 pupils have been selected to perform at the IDTA’s Theatre Awards in 2017 in Manchester. This competition is drawn from the best syllabus exam performances across the country, and it is considered a great honour to be asked to dance. Many pupils have been nominated for more than one category, and they are as follows:
Grade 5 Modern Jazz
Ewan Revill, Liberty Shepherd, Jack Skelton, Eve Wainwright
Advanced 1 Ballet
Advanced 1 Theatre Craft
Rebecca Hanneman, Alexandra O’Brien, Bree Quinton, Charlotte Stones, Bridie Thorpe
Advanced 2 Theatre Craft
Rebecca Hanneman, Alexandra O’Brien, Charlotte Stones, Bridie Thorpe
Well done to all pupils who took exams, as usual, we have maintained our 100% pass rate.
Our Fundraising Committee have well and truly done it again this term. Carol singing, festive fayres and a fantastically organised Christmas Concert. This year we added another performance due to popular demand! Many thanks to everyone who came to support the school and to those who donated extra to our extremely cute collectors.
Photos from the Concert are available at our Facebook page, please click here. A huge well done to all the teachers for putting together our festive favourite in a short space of time, we hope you all now feel suitably Christmassy.
We also had a sighting of a certain someone supposedly in “retirement” – but it turns out we can’t keep her away.
Thanks again to all for supporting our marvellous dance school, and we look forward to seeing you in the new year. Classes begin Saturday 7th January 2017.
