Festival of Lights Performance & Workshops

Alison and I are very proud of the students who performed at the 'Day of Dance' for the Festival of Lights on Sunday, after three days of rehearsals - you all danced so well! An especially big well done to students who saved the day by filling in for others who couldn't make it - particularly Anika, who learnt the Bolshoi choreography for 'Dance of the Hours' (Coppelia) in less than three hours and had it perfect on the day!!

We also had a lot of fun taking open workshops for ballet and jazz, and we hope everyone who came along enjoyed themselves, as we certainly did. Once again a big thank you to senior students Amber, Anneka, Sydney, Ella, Anika, and Charli, who volunteered to help. Now it's on to another year of dance - the studio re-opens on Monday 4 February, and if you're new this year we'll see you for Meet and Greet on Saturday 2 February. Keep a look out for an email from Alison regarding time slots.

In the meantime, here are some of the pictures myself or Glenn were able to get from the side.
