Welcome back to what we expect to be a busy and exciting term.

We hope that everyone can perform or be a part of our 25th Anniversary shows. Longfield Hall has been McAlpine Dance Studio’s home for 25 years and we are thrilled to be converting the hall into a theatre space for the three performances on 16th and 17th November.

Friday 16th November, 7.30 - 9pm
Upper school students’ performance of “Reflections”. An array of dances reflecting on our 25 years at Longfield Hall. “Swan Lake”, “Coppelia” and other well loved Ballets, interspersed with contemporary pieces will be on the programme.

Saturday 17th November, 11.30am– 12.30pm
Lower school students’ performance of “Reflections”. Our youngest children will be dancing in this morning performance. “The Ugly Duckling” along with other favourites will be on the programme. There is plenty for all to enjoy!
Saturday 17th November, 2.30 – 4pm
“Reflections” –  performed by the middle and upper school students, reflecting on our 25 years at Longfield Hall.  “Swan Lake”, “Coppelia” and Spanish dance, interspersed with a poem or two from our Drama class, will be on the programme.

Although most of our rehearsals will take place within the classes – we have also set some hours into our timetable for additional choreography and, ultimately, “run throughs” of the shows.
Please look at our website  to check rehearsal slots.
Tickets will be on sale through Eventbrite on Longfield Hall’s website:

We are asking for an additional £10 to be added to your term’s fees if you or your child is performing in “Reflections”. This is towards the costs of putting on the show.

Costume talk: Saturday 13th October, 4 - 4.30pm
Although we will be organising costumes in class times, we would like to meet you to discuss any queries.

Please let me know by email or by phone 07780907375 if you are missing class or running late etc. It really helps us!

Best wishes,
