Taster Week! (w/c 1st March)

All current pupils are invited to try any other class on our timetable for free as part of our taster week! If your child has always wanted to try a ballet class or loves to sing and dance then this is a perfect opportunity for them to try it out all from the comfort of your own home. We have Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Tap and Musical Theatre classes available so lots to choose from! Get in touch by Sunday 28th February to book your free taster class.

Bring a parent to class week! (w/c 8th March)

To celebrate Mothers Day on Sunday 14th March we thought it would be lovely to have a special week dedicated to all our wonderful dance parents!

We would love to invite our SLH mums (or dads/guardians) to join your child in their dance class for some special lessons w/c 8th March! Join in with your child’s dance class and celebrate this special occasion by dancing together in your own house! We have some special parent and child routines planned for this week for those who wish to join in 🙂

The Mothers Day dance along is open to the following classes:

Junior and Inter Musical Theatre

Pre-School, Pre-Primary, Primary, Grade 1 and 2 Ballet.

Grade 2 Modern

Performance Week! (w/c 22nd March)

We are really missing our usual end of term open watching classes! However we have decided to run some special performance classes the w/c 22nd March. Pupils will invite their household members to come and watch part of their lesson during this week! You can then see a small clip of what pupils have worked on this term all from the comfort of your sofa!

Photos/Videos

We have LOVED receiving videos/photos of pupils participating in their online classes last term. If you have anymore photos/videos of your child dancing at home that you would like to share on our SLH facebook page then send them in to slhdanceacademy@hotmail.com

SLH Facebook Page

Make sure you don’t miss out on our latest events and reminders by following our SLH Dance Academy facebook page which is regularly updated…

Give us a follow and let’s see how many new likes we can get this month!

Uniform

As always it is really important pupils are wearing the correct uniform for their classes even online please. It not only allows pupils to “feel the part” and feel part of a team but also allows teachers to see the correct alignment of the body which is very important in being able to correct technique and posture!

The only classes where uniform is optional is Monday and Tuesday Pre-School Ballet classes.

If you are unsure what your child should be wearing for class then drop us an email on slhdanceacademy@hotmail.com or view our list here https://slhdanceacademy.com/uniform/

Please ensure girls hair is tied up neatly off the face for ALL classes and in a bun for ballet.

Uniform can be purchased from our supplier Jenny 01825 765555 or

On our second hand selling page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/slhdancesecondhanduniform

Welcome Miss Lucy

Finally I must say an official welcome to our new teacher Miss Lucy who joined us at the start of the year! Miss Lucy is taking our Grade 2 Modern and Tap classes on a Tuesday afternoon alongside our special online stretch/routine class. She is a qualified ISTD Tap and Modern teacher with a bubbly personality and infectious energy! Lucy has really enjoyed getting to know some of our dancers online and hopes to meet lots more of you soon in person!

Welcome Miss Lucy 🙂

We hope your children all have a great term of classes and we can’t wait for all the exciting opportunities we have planned this term 🙂

Best Wishes,

Team SLH Dance Academy

Sophie, Zara and Lucy xxx
