Its been a very busy couple of weeks for our pupils. On the 20th November we took our team to compete at the Wythenshawe Forum Manchester and then on the 27th November most of our pupils took their medal tests.
I have now posted some photos onto the schools Instagram page, click here to see. It was great to see so many of you getting involved and enjoying your dancing. On medal test day we also enjoyed some fantastic home baked cakes. Well done to all those who helped out raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

This is a personal message from Elisabeth:-
We have just got back from a fantastic Competition Day in a new venue in Huddersfield. It has been a lovely day and no doubt by now, you will have read about all the Dance School successes on facebook and seen the photographs on Instagram. Congratulations to all our Competitors. Winners one and all!!
I would like to say a special “Big Thank you”, on behalf of the Competitors and Parents, to Estelle, Jonathan and Jan for partnering ALL the competitors and helping them to achieve such a high standard of Dance. I hope all three of you can get your feet up and rest this evening before you all go back to work tomorrow. I don`t know where you get all your energy from.
We will see you all in class during the week.
Our dancers have enjoyed a very busy start to the year including two Ballroom and Latin competitions, a Street dance competition, Medal presentation evening with professional dance demonstration, trip to Blackpool Tower Ballroom and most recently the ‘Top Hat’ performance at the Opera House which was amazing. We are very proud of all our dancers who have worked hard to improve their dancing and who get involved with our events. You can see pictures of all of these events and more on the dance school instagram page.

All of our adult pupils, including our beginners and improver’s, are welcome to join us for a social dance on Saturday the 7th May starting at 8pm and we have all of our Medal Tests on Sunday the 8th May. Our Social dances are very relaxed, just bring your dance shoes and your own favourite drinks and nibbles. Its an ideal opportunity to practice all those steps you’ve been working hard to master.
To celebrate the achievements and commitment of our dance pupils top dance competitors Christian and Beth treated us all to an inspiring demonstration of all five Latin dances Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Samba and Paso. We were also treated to various demonstrations of dance by our own pupils at every age group and level. Everyone involved performed their routines with confidence. Well done dancers, your performances were great!
Thank you all Mums, Dads and Grandparents for your continued support. As Christian and Beth highlighted during the question and answer session, learning to dance requires both determination and commitment and the higher the level you wish to attain the more dedication and practice is required.
Following the demonstration Christian and Beth handed out awards to the schools pupils including Medal Tests Certificates, Competitors Medals and Special Achievement Awards. These awards recognise the skill, commitment, effort and general development of our pupils. We are very proud of the progress made by every pupil. Well done dancers!
