NEWSLETTER FOR SPRING TERM 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

A very happy New Year to you all! I hope you have all had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas. It was lovely to see so many of you at our Christmas Speech Recital. This is always a special occasion, giving our LAMDA and Drama students an opportunity to perform their pieces. Congratulations to them all for an excellent performance and my thanks to Hugh Jones for his hard work in producing the afternoon performance and for preparing the students for their LAMDA examinations. Thanks also to Sarah Hickman for her work with the Creative Dancers and for producing their lovely Christmas dance. A big thank you (as ever) to our “Christmas elves” who helped so much in the kitchen!

The Smethcote Church Christmas carol service on December 22nd was a lovely evening. It is always such a special and welcoming service. Thank you Annabel and Helena for dancing so beautifully.

PLEASE DON’T FORGET LAMDA EXAMINATIONS ARE BEING HELD ON SUNDAY JANUARY 19th 2020. I will be sending you a reminder of your son/daughter’s scheduled examination time.

Dudgeley Hall and Leebotwood Village Hall Tuesday evening timetables remain unchanged this term. I have made a few slight changes to the Dorrington Village Hall Saturday timetable. The previous Classical Greek Dance classes 4 and 3 will stay combined but will start at the slightly later time of 9.00. I have decided to divide the previous Ballet 1 class due to increasing numbers and large range of ages. In order for this to be practical there will be a new Grade 1 class from 9.30 until 10.00 in the Meeting Room. Primary Ballet will remain, at the slightly later time of 12.15 till 12.45. Because of these changes most other classes will run at slightly later times—please check the timetable!

I have removed the Senior Saturday afternoon classes from the timetable … however Penny is happy to teach these classes if there is enough interest expressed.

I am delighted to say I will be returning to teach this term—thank you for all your kind thoughts and wishes during my absence. Thanks also to Penny and Sarah for covering my classes.

There have been changes to the children’s ISTD Classical Greek Dance syllabus which Penny has already introduced. The standard has been raised considerably; nevertheless I would like the next Junior examination entry to take place in the Autumn Term—so plenty of work to do!

There is also a new Classical Greek Dance tunic design, which will be gradually phased in - Flo Roberts will be making these as usual.

As always please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions concerning your child/children. Thank you for your continuing support and I look forward to seeing you all again on Tuesday January 7th and Saturday January 11th, and for an enjoyable and successful Spring Term.

Love Cathy

A MESSAGE FROM MISS CATHY

Category: THANK YOU
Posted: 2019-11-21 22:09

To All Parents / Carers

Thank you for all the kind messages you have sent me during my absence from Dorrington and Dudgeley Hall. I have been receiving wonderful feedback about all the students from my teachers Penny, Sarah, Hugh and Anna - who I would like to thank for their support.

The advice from my consultant has been to "take it easy" and allow a swift recovery - and I have done so! I'm looking forward to returning to teach at the beginning of the Spring Term and hopefully will see as many of you as possible at our Christmas Recital on Saturday December 7th.

Love and best wishes

Cathy
