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.
Well done dance team on achieving some great results this weekend at the UKA dance competition. We had a really fun day. Check out my photos on our Instagram page. The next competition is on Sunday 14th February. Check out our events calendar here.
If you know anyone wanting to learn to dance we have beginners classes starting soon, email or call us today for more info.
Well done to every member of the dance team who competed last weekend. A top effort in the face of some stiff competition… You all deserve a medal!
On Saturday 3rd October and Sunday 4th October the UKA hosted its Premier Dance Festival at the Empress Gardens Blackpool. Kim and Bogdan competed on Saturday in the styles of Street Dance / Hip Hop. On Sunday the rest of the team competed in the styles of Ballroom and Latin. Dance schools travelled from all over the country and beyond including Scotland, Ireland and Portugal to show off there dancing in front of the judges so the standard of dancing was very high making for stiff competition even for the more experienced dancers. Under pressure you all performed so well.
I’ve only got a few photographs from the day. If you have any nice pictures you would be happy to share then please forward them onto me and I will add them to this post. email firstname.lastname@example.org
Dance school competitors..Keep up the good work and make the most of your practice sessions as there is now only 1 week to go before the UKA’s Premier Dance Competition. Also, please try on your outfits and shoes to be sure they fit! You don’t want an outfit malfunction on the day! If you’re new to competition and want some advice then don’t hesitate to ask Estelle or the more experienced pupils. We will be pleased to help. This event will be very busy so please arrive early to find where we are seated and allow good time to change into your dance outfits etc.
Estelle has the tickets for this event, if you have not received your tickets then please get in touch ASAP.
This year the school will have over 30 pupils competing in Ballroom and Latin American styles (on Sunday 4th October) and for the first time at a UKA Premier Event we will have a couple of pupils who will compete in the style of Street Dance! (on Saturday 3rd October). Good Luck everyone!
The UKA hosted another great dance competition at Wythenshawe Forum on Sunday the 28th June and we were their to join in on the action. Twenty Eight pupils from our school competed in both Latin and Ballroom dances including, Samba, Jive, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Waltz, Quick step, Foxtrot and Tango. As usual the event was very well attended and competition was strong. Elisabeth, Estelle and all the teacher team are very proud of every pupils performance. Well done, and keep up the good work. You all have new dances to learn for the next competition at the Blackpool Empress Ballroom in October. See you all this Saturday evening the 4th July for the medal presentations when many of you demonstrate dances in competition dress. Tickets for the event can be bought from Elisabeth or Estelle following classes.

The evening will also include some dance demonstrations by pupils many of which will be dressed in their competition clothes. Contact Elisabeth for more information and to purchase tickets.
Great team spirit today with everyone supporting each other. The team enjoyed some good results despite strong competition. Well done to everyone who got call backs including a number of you who reached finals. Many of you looked stunning in new ballroom dresses and Max and Olivia (brother and sister) danced competitively together for the first time today. It was brilliant to whatch, well done, you must do it again! Let’s build on this experience and with good practice more of us will enjoy call backs. Well done to you all, the effort you all put in is really appreciated. Thank you.
