June 2018 News

 

Lots of hard work paid off for our wonderful Grade 1s. They travelled to Ballet Cymru for their exams, after much exam practise, and came out smiling having done their best!

Fantastic to hear that Josh has been accepted into the Brit school in London to follow his dream of musical theatre.  We all knew he would after bringing so much talent and enthusiasm to all the shows he did with us!  After being accepted into Tring but not being able to take the place age 11, he worked solidly at school and in musical theatre groups to prepare for 16+ places.  Good luck Josh, you so totally deserve it!

February 2018

New adult ballet classes starting!  All welcome.

January 2018

December 2017

Congratulations children on a fabulous performance! The Blake Theatre was such a great venue to dance at, lots of excited faces and smiles as the lights and music started.

 

 

Thank you to our fabulous narrator Reueben for being such a great Charles Dickens.  And thank you to Amelia and Dawid for guest starring as young Scrooge and Belle. How wonderful to have past pupils dancing with us. Amelia and Dawid are both studying full time at Elmhurst Ballet School in Birmingham but wanted to dance with their old ballet friends and be with us for the day, just lovely!

 

 

And of course huge thanks to the wonderful parent helpers, who made the day go very smoothly for the children.

 

November 2017

Costumes ready, photos sorted, props being made (thank you parents for being fabulous as always)

Grade 2 mock exams went very well indeed. All the children feel ready and confident for the real thing.

Grade 2 exams – fingers crossed they went well. The children felt they did their best which is the most important thing. Dancing at Ballet Cymru, Newport was as always such an inspiring venue for the children.
