We are so excited to begin our Nutcracker workshops this week. The children will learn about this wonderful children’s ballet, its story and its characters. We will learn about the music in the ballet and how this impacts the movements and styles. We will learn about character national dance which is a fantastic way of exploring different cultures, music and steps. We will learn some of the dances from the Nutcracker! This will be so much fun!
We enjoyed being sparkly for the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing theme for this year’s Children In Need. We raised money by donating and wearing something sparkly!
We are excited to announce we raised £80 for Children In Need by taking part in the Tapathon fundraiser. The children all worked so hard to learn lots of new tap steps in time to perform the Tapthon dance. Even our younger children joined in and they were amazing- well done everyone!
We are pleased to announce we have completed the Royal Academy of Dance training and are now licensed to teach Silver Swans adult ballet classes. Silver Swans is a ballet class designed for older adults and we are excited to offer these new classes in Staffordshire and Derbyshire. More information coming soon.
This week we have a week full of fun filled Halloween classes where the children can wear Halloween costumes or fancy dress. We will be making witches potions, being spooky ghosts, becoming dancing zombies and having lots of fun!
We had a fantastic start to our newest addition to the timetable- a new Primary and Junior Friday after school class at Anslow Village Hall. We have received some wonderful feedback from the parents and children;
“Thank you for yesterday’s class. My daughter has shown me some of the dances she learnt this morning. When I asked her if she liked the class she replied ‘I didn’t like it Mummy, I loved it!’. Looking forward to next week.
“Thank you for today, my daughter really loved it and is already counting down the sleeps until the next class.”
We are still offering trial classes so please do get in touch if you would like to book a place for your child/ren.
Here is our updated timetable:
