Well Done Dancers

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.

Elisabeth’s Message

Hiya Everybody,

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.

Love from
Elisabeth M.

Message from Elisabeth

Hello there,

This is a personal message from Elisabeth:

I have just spent three amazing weekends watching our pupils excelling in different events.

 First of all on Sunday 17th April they displayed  the beauty and elegance of the Ballroom and Latin Competition, on Sunday 24th April they “hit us “ with their energy and excitement at the Street Dance Competition and then Saturday 30th April….the icing on the cake their “pure magical” performance in the Hits 25 show at the Opera House Theatre, Winter Garden, Blackpool.

I am so very proud of them.

Since I started the Dance School over twenty years ago it has always been my aim to provide affordable lessons for any child who wishes to join us and learn to dance.

We do not audition or choose our pupils for any of our special projects like other schools do. If anyone wants to be involved, we take them.

We provide inexpensive small group workshops for our training sessions and due to the hard work of everyone concerned the results are remarkable . Other Schools only achieve this sort of improvement with very expensive private lessons.

We sincerely believe in providing a good standard of dancing for all. This is achieved with the warm co-operation and teamwork between us Teachers, the Parents and of-course our lovely pupils.

I look forward to seeing you all at our Medal Test weekend next Sunday 8th May  and  our medal Presentation on 9th July .

If you particularly enjoyed any of our special events please don`t hesitate to tell us.

Best regards to everyone,

Elisabeth

Awards & Demonstration Evening

IMG_9576

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!

Thanks to everyone who supported this event and we wish all friends and pupils of our dance school a happy and healthy New Year. 2015 was a fantastic year with lots of well supported events. Lets make 2016 even better. Check out some of the events we enjoyed in 2015… click this link.. Dance Events 2015 pdf Check out what we have planned for 2016 click here.

Beginners

If you’ve never danced before or you have just started to learn make 2016 the year you discover the wonderful and rewarding experience of dancing. There’s no better way to stay fit and healthy without feeling like you’ve exercised at all!  We have adult beginners classes running on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Check out our website www.kirkhamdance.com for more information.

new class adult
The ‘beginners’ class of October 2015. In 10 weeks these pupils have learnt to Jive, Waltz, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba and Quickstep. Very well done to you all. We are looking forward to taking your dancing to the next level in 2016!

Improvers

If you have some experience of dancing make 2016 the year you take your dancing to the next level. This might be for example, having some private lessons to get to grips with the Foxtrot, taking a medal test for the first time or entering a dance competition! What ever your dancing goals might be we are here to help you achieve them. Estelle, Elisabeth, Michael or Jonathan will be pleased to have a chat and discuss your requirements.  Our teacher team is committed to help you make your dancing experience as good as it can be. Our adult intermediate level class is held on a Wednesday evening. For adults who wish to compete then special workshops and private coaching sessions are available.

Sequence Dance

For those of you who enjoy Sequence dancing then we have a class which focuses solely on learning sequence dances on a Thursday Evening. Learning popular sequence dances is very useful as you are exposed to all the rhythms of the Ballroom and Latin dances and many social events are often a 50/50 mix of Ballroom / Latin and Sequences dances.

Social Dances

Looking ahead, we will be hosting many more social events (including trips to the world famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom), and more regular Saturday night social dances for Ballroom & Latin and Sequence dancing. These social dances really help develop your dancing and confidence and are a great opportunity to get to know your fellow pupils better. Check out our events page on our web site http://www.kirkhamdance.com for dates and times.
