Newsletter March 2018

With another busy and brilliant term coming to an end please see below important information with regards to the end of this term and the upcoming summer term.

Term Dates
Last classes of this term are on Tuesday 27th March.

Summer Term commences Monday 16th April- Tuesday 17th July

(No classes w/c 28th May due to half term)

Open Classes
Due to exams for some pupils this term and the fact some classes are already starting show choreography I have decided that there will be NO open/watching classes this term for the majority of classes.

Parents are invited to watch the following classes only this term on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th March:
Pre-School Ballet Monday 1.50pm-2.30pm
Pre-School Ballet Tuesday 9.15am-9.45am and 9.45am-10.15am

Summer Show on Sunday 15th July 2018 @ Priory School, Lewes
Emails have now been sent to affected parents regarding the SLH Summer Show. Please remember this involves all pupils apart from those in Pre-School ballet. Your show consent forms must be completed and returned along with participation fee by Thursday 29th March at the latest. If you have not received an email please do let me know ASAP as without a completed consent form your child will be unable to perform.

A reminder that all children in Pre-Primary and above must wear the correct uniform to all classes. Please ensure that long hair is neatly tied up for classes and preferably in a bun for ballet classes. Jenny of Limelight our uniform supplier can be contacted at 01825 765555.

We had some more brilliant ISTD exam results last term for our Grade 1 Tappers who all passed with distinctions and merits. Well done girls I am very proud of you!
Wishing 2 of our lovely Grade 1 Ballet pupils Anna and Lola lots of luck for their upcoming exam during the Easter holidays
Grade 4 Modern pupils will be preparing for exams at the end of the Summer term

Snow Cancellations
Cancelled classes on Tuesday 27th February due to the snow will be made up at the end of the summer term on Tuesday 17th July 2018.
Cancelled classes on Saturday 3rd March due to the snow will be refunded on your next invoice.

Summer School 24th-27th July
Early bird booking for our popular summer school is now OPEN! 4 days of dancing fun during the summer holidays. Email has been sent round with more details and costs. Get in touch asap to book a place or book online at:

Pre-School Holiday workshops
I am also in the process of arranging a few one off holiday workshops for our younger pupils aged 3.5-5 years old during the summer holidays. Please get in touch to register your interest. More information will be released soon so watch this space!

Malling Centre Refurbishment
As you may/may not be aware the Malling Community Centre is due to undergo a big refurbishment to provide a brand new facility for the community. It is still unknown when this will be starting but when it does take place we will have to move venues during the refurbishment I am in the process of sorting alternative venues which is proving quite a challenge! If you have any contacts within the local primary schools for the use of their hall please do get in touch. As soon as I have more information I will let you know but rest assured I am on the case!

Terms and Conditions Update
To ensure SLH Dance Academy is GDPR compliant I will be updating/reviewing my terms and conditions policy during the Easter holidays. All parents will be sent the updated conditions in due course.

Thank you for your continued support and I hope you have a fabulous Easter break!!
Bring on a very exciting Summer term!
