I hope you are all keeping well and managing to stay positive. I have had to make the difficult decision to suspend all of our dance classes. This is to support the governments drive to contain and delay the spread of Covid-19. The health and well-being of our students, their families, our teachers, pianists and assistants is our number one priority.
This is an uncertain time, but we hope we can resume classes soon after the Easter break, but will be guided by the advice from the government. Should our return to classes be delayed we are investigating the feasibility of delivering online exercises/activities/dances etc.
I would like to thank everyone for your kind words of appreciation and continued support throughout this time,
Take care, keep well and we’ll be in touch again soon,
Miss Faye, Miss Mandy, Miss Leanne & Miss Valerie
