W E E K L Y E M A I L # 2 1 :
The end of term seems to be speeding towards us at an alarming rate and we have just three weeks left of lessons until our showcase on Sunday 10th July!
Huge thanks this week to all our ISTD exam parents who have been extremely understanding in contending with the last minute date change.
Please read on for details of the guest drama teacher who will be taking classes at summer school, as well as a reminder that, due to the EU referendum tomorrow, classes are taking place at Holy Trinity Hall (dance) and Barnes Methodist Church (drama).
S H O W C A S E :
Tickets, in the form of wristbands, have now arrived for the showcase!
These will be given out once payment (in cash or via transfer) is received.
Extra ticket availability information will be given next week once we have FINAL numbers; there are still pupils pulling out/asking to take part at the moment. Click below for how to pay!
As Maggie is away, we are excited to welcome Jo Croll to take the drama classes at Pirouettes + Popcorn. She will be doing one class with each age group and will bring to each session her wealth of teaching experience atThe Drama Centre, Rose Bruford College, Goldsmiths University, Italia Conti and Falcons School for Boys. She has taken on the roles of both LAMDA and Movement + Acting Tutor at these institutions as well as for professional theatre companies. She is herself an actor, appearing on TV (Casualty, Luther) as well as on stage and in films and commercials.
DRAMA - THURSDAY:
This week classes will take place at Barnes Methodist Church - click here for a map. As this is an extra class, you will need to make payment of £10 either in cash on the day to Maggie, or via transfer to the school account.
TAP + MODERN - THURSDAY:
This week classes will take place at Holy Trinity Church Hall - click here for a map.
JUMP - SATURDAY:
As part of the Modern syllabus, pupils are required to respond to music using an instrument. We are encouraging pupils to make their own instruments (anything you can shake usually easiest) and bring them in each week to use. This is especially important if your child is taking their exam in July.

PRIVATE LESSONS OFFER:
As several students have missed classes and/or extra coaching sessions, Miss Jo is offering extra coaching slots on Wednesday afternoons in the small hall should anyone wish to take them up. Each 30 min session will be priced at £15.00.
You can book a private 1 to 1 session for just your child or, if you want to get together with others in your exam set or class and share a session, £15.00 will be divided between you. Due to the size of the small hall, there will be no more than 4 permitted to share a session in order for it to be an effective practice!
Please email email@example.com to book a session and, if you want to share a session but do not have your classmates parents' contact details to arrange, please include this in the email and Miss Jo will attempt to coordinate. Slots available are as follows:
