We have continued to see an enthusiastic response to our online classes during the spring term. This is obviously not the situation we would like to be in but hopefully now there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
We are awaiting updated guidance from the government but have been working hard to put plans in place to return to in-person classes as soon as the regulations allow. If things go to plan this could be from 19th April but we are dependent on the opening of our hired venues.
Over the last few months some of our pupils have been taking part in online dance festivals/Southern Dance Class Awards online and have performed fantastically. Well done to all those involved – including families who re-arranged furniture to facilitate this! In October we were even lucky enough to see some of our senior pupils perform on stage in a ‘live’ Gosport dance festival.
We also managed to conduct two days of filmed RAD ballet exams in December before going back into lockdown. All candidates gained either merit or distinction and I am very proud of the results our students achieved after spending so long learning from home on zoom.
I hope all our families are keeping well and am looking forward to welcoming everyone back when it is deemed safe to do so.
We will update the full timetable for the summer term very soon so keep an eye out.
