Mothers Day Gift Workshop

Join Miss Lynda for some creative fun!

I am so excited to let you know that I am hosting a Mothers Day Gift Workshop - the children are invited to come along for a two hour craft session with me to make a beautiful Mothers Day gift & card.

I have collected glass beads since I was a child & I love making window rainbow catchers with them. I’d love to share my passion with your children & help them create a lovely gift for their lovely mummy.

The workshop will be on Sunday 3rd March, in our Stoneleigh Studio - 12.30-2.30pm. The price will be £20 (inc VAT) per child & will include all materials to make the glass bead gift & card. Booking form will be emailed in the coming weeks.

Exam News

Next Exam Session Saturday 16th March

Congratulations to all those that took exams in November - results & awards are in! You all did brilliantly so well done - we are very proud of you.

We will be hosting our next IDTA Dance Exams sessions, in our Stoneleigh Studio, on Saturday 16th March from 1.30pm (classes are as usual in the morning).

Dance Exams are a great way to keep your child's skills sharp and ensure they're ready for any opportunities that come their way. They offer a chance for children to test their skills in front of an examiner, and also gives them the chance to work on their technique as well as their confidence.

Easter Bonnet Parade

For all Twinkles & Rosettes

When we wrap up our Easter theme for the term, we wanted to invite all your children to participate in an Easter Bonnet Parade on the last day of class! This is for Twinkles & Rosette classes only.

To celebrate this festive season in a fun and creative way, I encourage your child to design and make their own Easter bonnet to wear for our parade. More details will be emailed.

Charity Week

Last week of term Friday 22nd - Thursday 28th March

Please wear something Easter themed on last day of term and bring a £1 donation for our chosen charity for this term - The Royal Marsden Hospital.

Many thanks for your donations last term - we raised £160 for the Single Homeless Project.
