The First Break Week of our Fall Session is over, and we are very excited to be starting classes in our new location! Sunday morning classes with Miss Shoshana will remain in the same studio as before, but all others will now be in our new space.

Winter Recital is coming up especially fast this year, a 'Nutcracker-themed' show is back by popular demand and we can't wait to be back in the big theater with all our dancers and some guest performers! Students - please don't forget to register for the recital online or in class before October 23rd.


We are currently on Summer Break - and working hard to organize the Fall schedule! Classes will be available online in our Parent Portal this Friday August 5th for you to choose from and register. Fall session will be starting August 29th. Thank you for your patience!

Miss Natalie is currently in Germany undertaking a teacher training intensive with the Royal Academy of Dance, and will be responding to email queries whilst away, so please feel free to get in touch. 


We are also working to complete our new studio in our current location over the summer, and are so excited to hold classes in the brand new space soon.


Finally, a huge congratulations to all our dancers that performed in our summer show "The Enchanted Forest" - we are so proud of you all. Please feel free to share your photos and videos with us, and get ready for the stage again in December!
