Week 9:

There was some surprise when we put the hard copy of the timetable up at classes over the past week, so we wanted to make doubly sure that everyone is taking note of the changes we told you about in the weekly email sent 1st March.

As we are merging classes for dances in the show, that means merged rehearsals too. The new timetable is here and can be found on the boards outside the hall as well as online.

Fee details will be sent out next week and for most of you this means paying your usual fees but having your children with us for longer. If you are not taking part in the show you will receive separate instructions where necessary.

If we find that we do not need as many shared rehearsals, or shorter shared rehearsals, rest assured we will be the first to cut them. So if it looks like a lot on paper don't worry - your children are not dancing non stop for 2 or more hours but practising positions and entrances and exits so that the dances work smoothly.

BALLET STUDENTS : Please ensure you have taken note of the timetable changes that for you, come into effect from this afternoon.

We now have 10 parents that have kindly volunteered to help but we need at least 2, preferably 4, more!

Ideally we would like someone from the SKIP or Pre Primary Ballet class plus 3 more from the Grade 1+ end of the school. Without the adequate number of licensed chaperones we will not be permitted to put on the show.

Richmond Council have to grant us a license for the children to perform and we have to submit the names of at least 1 licensed chaperone per 12 children performing at any time.

To become a licensed chaperone an online 'course' in child protection needs to be completed and a DBS check completed. This all takes at least 3 months so we need to get things in motion now.

We are very grateful to those that have volunteered already. We ask our chaperones to work in teams of two so that each parent gets to see the show and their own children perform. This also means that you can share rehearsals though ideally you will both be at all rehearsals so that you know what your group require.

Pleas email Jo to volunteer your services! 
We have 7 children taking part in this dance so far and would love a few more! Having reviewed with Miss Lucy, we have changed the rehearsal schedule a little so please take note!

  • Pupils must be in Grade 1 and above, or attend Jnr/Inter Perf class.
  • Pupils must be able to attend the two Easter holiday workshop dates below.
  • Pupils must commit to the below Friday rehearsals from after Easter.

To take part in the dance there is a charge of £27.50 which covers both Easter workshop dates and the Friday rehearsals after Easter.

There will be a further charge for the costume but, as always, we will aim to keep this to minimum.

(All rehearsals will take place at Kitson Hall)

Grade 2 + 3 Tap students and Bronze Jazz Award students with their certificates from the December 2016 session.
As we have been preparing for the show in our Modern and Tap classes we won't be holding Open Studios for these classes at the end of term. This is because a rehearsal session with constant repetition and usually only 8 - 16 bars of music learned is not the most thrilling!

If your child is not doing the show we will invite you in to classes at the end of the Summer Term when there will be more to 'see'. 

Parents of HOP + SKIP pupils are invited to watch on Saturday 25th March.
