Dear Parents/Students I hope you have had a good Easter break and I’m excited to welcome everyone back for the summer term. We had a fantastic Spring term culminating in our full school show.

With the country being requested to stay at home for the immediate future we are unfortunately unable to hold our regular studio-based classes. We have been working hard to develop a series of online classes and tasks to keep our students engaged, both mentally & physically, during the closure period. It is lovely to see the smiling faces of our students with the help of technology and we have received some heart-warming feedback from parents. This is far from an ideal situation but we are doing our best to keep our students dancing until such time as we can resume proper classes.
