NEWSLETTER FOR SPRING TERM 2016

Category: NEWSLETTERS
Posted: 2016-01-05 11:40

Dear Parents / Carers,

A very happy New Year to you all! I hope you have all had a lovely and peaceful Christmas. I anticipate that our Spring Term 2016 will be another exciting and busy term.

I would like to thank you all for your support at our Speech Recital and in particular Sarah Hickman and Ben Seager and all the children who worked so hard to produce what I am sure you will agree was a wonderful occasion – despite the two surprise interruptions!. Thank you also for supporting our Christmas party (which as always was great fun) and for all your help in the kitchen and with the clearing up. Thanks also to the dancers who performed so beautifully in the Carol Service at the lovely Smethcott Church.

The timetable for Dorrington classes remains unchanged but I have had to make changes to our Monday classes at Wistanstow. LAMDA II and III will now be taught at Leebotwood by Miss Eleanor Gromadski-Owen and LAMDA I pupils are invited to join our LAMDA and Drama classes at Dorrington on Saturday mornings, taught by Mrs Sarah Hickman.

Important dates for your diary

LAMDA Speech examinations are being held on Sunday February 14th and I.S.T.D. Ballet examinations will be held on Tuesday February 16th. Classical Greek Dance examinations have been provisionally booked for Sunday March 20th. Examination times along with fees and further information will be emailed as soon as possible. Pupils please note the importance of regular attendance at classes in order for the examination experience to be a positive and confident one, and this applies also to those involved in our performance at Concord College. There will be an extra lesson for Ballet examinees on Monday February 15th. Further details to follow.

This year’s “A Celebration of Dance” at Concord College will take place on Saturday July 2nd at 6 pm.

Prizegiving for the whole school will take place on Saturday July 9th.

Due to a substantial increase in hall hiring fees and general expenditure, I have unfortunately had to increase the class fees as from this term (please see the Times and Prices sheet for details).
Tunics of all colours, ballet uniform and sweatshirts are all on sale. Pupils are reminded that appropriate uniform should be worn for classes and hair must be kept tidy.

As always do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions concerning your child/children. Don’t forget to keep checking our official Facebook page for updated information and news. Thank you for your continuing support and I look forward to an enjoyable and successful Spring Term.

Love Cathy

Thank you everyone for a lovely day yesterday!

Well done to everyone who took part in the Speech Recital during the morning – despite the two interruptions you all remained calm and professional – I was so proud of you! Thank you Sarah and Ben for your hard work.

I hope you all enjoyed the party – what wonderful costumes!! My heartfelt thanks go to my dear family, and parents and friends, for your support and help with the serving up of the food and drinks and the clearing away afterwards. Have a very happy Christmas everyone!

Don’t forget the Smethcott Church rehearsal at 10.30 am on Saturday 19th and the carol service on Sunday 20th at 6.30 pm.
