One of our original Professional Programme students Courtney George has been awarded a scholarship to Laine Theatre Arts School just two days after her first audition. Last month she won the Young Dancer of the Year at The Dance Show in Birmingham. Well done Courtney! Your tireless enthusiasm, dedication and hard work have reaped the rewards you richly deserve.
Before Christmas we held a party for our Mini Movers and Moving Minis (classes for children aged 18months - 4years old). We had loads of fun singing Christmas songs and playing in the bubble machine and then finished the morning off with mince pies and orange juice. Lani and Sharon (both aged 3) had a great time filming these short clips to tell you how they got on! We have seen a huge improvement in our Minis this term - lots more confidence and rhythm! We can’t wait to see everyone again for the start of the spring term in January.
