I hope you are enjoying the summer
– 8 weeks break from our classes at McAlpine Dance studio seems a very long time to be off but we are looking forward to seeing you for our Autumn term which starts on Saturday 9th September. In the meantime here are two dates for your diaries: 29th July 6pm – Musical Hall Extravaganza and 29th August 7.30 -9pm Adult Ballet class. See below for details.

New Dance Floor fundraiser event update:
A huge thank you for all the support our parents, students and friends gave to make our last day of term such a great success. You have raised an amazing £1,200 from the "changement marathon", raffle, cake sale and donations. Longfield Hall is waiting to hear whether their bid for funding for a new sprung floor has been succesful - £27,000 is needed so fingers crossed!
In the mean time a new vinyl floor and and maybe some mirrors are on our list.

RAD Ballet and ISTD Tap and Modern Exams:

What a year of exams we have had...with 110 entries in total!
Well done to all our students for all their hard work towards these exams. Many of our senior boys and girls were taking GCSE’s and A levels at the same time, so particular congratulations to these young people who are off to university. We will miss them!

Heritage Lottery funded FREE summer course for children, 26th – 29th July:
These FREE summer workshops run by Camilla de Quetteville and Louisa McAlpine are an exciting few days of drama and dance through the research the young people have done with archivist, Steve Martin. The history of the area around Longfield Hall will be seen through the students’ performance of “Music Hall Extravaganza” on 29th July at 6pm. Free entry.
