We have been rehearsing these dances alongside usual class work in classes from January 6th.

There will also be some extra rehearsals and these will be kept to a minimum…please see below….

Classes that can combine rehearsals from March only

The following classes can attend each other’s lessons for extra practice for the show from the start of March- no extra cost. This is not compulsory and we understand you may not be available at these times, but as the students in these classes will be performing together it would help if they can come along to attend a few of each other’s classes to rehearse together where possible leading up to the show. We have seen in the past it helps make the students feel more confident, as well as the running of the whole run through rehearsal and dress rehearsal much smoother.
