Dear Parents/Carers
A warm welcome to you all at the start of a new year with the Diana Griffiths School of Dance. I hope you have all had a lovely summer break and the children are refreshed for the start of term.
I would like to congratulate everyone who took part in “A Celebration of Dance…Dream of Midsummer”on June 27th at Concord College. I am sure you will agree that the children’s performance was excellent and I would like to add how thrilled we all were with the children’s wonderful behaviour throughout the day! We raised a fantastic £1,100 for Hope House Children’s Hospices, thanks to the children’s hard work, my wonderful and inspired teachers, and as always your tremendous support.
Thank you for attending our end of term prize giving and cheque presentation to Hope House area fund raiser Sarah Johnson. Commendations were awarded to every member who took part. In addition there were special awards for improvement (Tilly Morgan and Yasmin Young) Dance awards (Pippa Simcock and Jasmine Simpson) Drama awards (Annabel Griffiths and Rosie Wilson) and Commitment awards were presented to Mirren Kemp-Walker and Maggie Franklin.
Our Summer “Dance Expressions” Workshops at Dorrington Village Hall were once again well supported and enjoyed by our youngest members of the school and their parents and carers.
As you are all aware Mrs Anna Granger is now on maternity leave. We would like to extend a warm welcome to their new baby girl who arrived safely on August 12th! Our love and warmest congratulations go to Anna, James and Theo.
I am delighted to inform you that Mrs Sarah Hickman will be joining us at Dorrington on Saturdays to teach the children Drama and LAMDA.
The new timetable has taken some working out… and again is fairly tight! Therefore please ensure your child arrives punctually for her/his lesson. There are a few changes in times and Miss Anna Belyavin will this term be introducing Street Dance during the Creative session. I have divided Greek II into two classes … please check the attached timetable! Miss Anna will also be teaching Contemporary Dance on Tuesday evenings (please see Diary for Autumn Term).
We have set up a Facebook page!! Please LIKE it and keep an eye on updates I will be posting on the page from now on! Emails and the website will continue as normal.
As always do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions concerning your child / children … your feedback is important to me. Thank you for your continuing support and I look forward to an enjoyable and successful Autumn Term.

Yours Sincerely,

Cathy Griffiths
