Week 8:

A big well done to Miss Lucy and her ballet students who took exams from Pre Primary to Grade 4 level yesterday at the RAD. This evening is Open Studios for ALL Ballet classes (Pre-Primary, Grade 1 + 2) along with next Monday (Grade 3 + 4).

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.

Please ensure you have taken note of the timetable changes after Easter. BALLET STUDENTS: Timetable changes take place from Wednesday 15th March/Monday 20th March.
You are still able to sign up to take part in this extra dance - please read on for more details!

  • 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 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 unless stated)

One of our parents Katy - who also runs the secondhand uniform service - has made the very brave decision to shave her head if she manages to raise £5000 for The Blood Fund by the end of March.

She's over half way to reaching her target but needs our help! 

Details on The Blood Fund and why Katy is taking on the challenge can be found here. Well done Katy - you have the full support of Clifford Studios x

We are really pleased that 68 pupils will be taking place in our 'Myths, Monsters + Magic' show in June/July.

However, we have only had 2 offers of help from parents to act as chaperones. 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.

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

We are very grateful to the two that have volunteered already and we need at least 9 more. We ask our chaperones to work in teams of two so that each parents gets to see the show and their own children perform. 

Pleas email Jo to volunteer your services!
