Poppets Show - Holidazzle

Deadline for performers 30th September

It has been a dream of mine for a few years now to produce an annual Poppets Show every Christmas season. I had it all booked for 2020 but sadly had to cancel - I'm hoping 2021 will be the year.

As our Poppets classes have been so popular since lockdown, I am excited to announce that our first "Holidazzle - A Country Christmas" is booked for Sunday 5th December at Blenheim High School, Epsom.

This production is for our Poppets classes only - Twinkle Toes & Tappy Feet, Hip Hop Poppets & Rosettes - emails to these specific classes will be sent separately.

September 30th is the deadline for all poppets interested in performing in our first Holidazzle production.

Halloween Week

Dress Up Week Saturday 16th - Sunday 22nd October

All children are invited to dress up for Halloween in their dance classes - we always have lot's of fun during this week of dance.

Show 2022

As many of you know - we had to cancel our 2020 show "Life is a Dance Floor" due to the pandemic. We really hope our 2022 Show will go ahead as planned - an email will be sent to all graded classes in the next week or so. The deadline to opt into our show is Friday 22nd October.

As we are producing a Poppets only show in December, our main show next July will only be offered to Pre-Prep classes and above.

Show Dates are- Thursday 14th, Friday 15th & Saturday 16th July 2022 @ The Harlequin Theatre, Redhill.

I have recently qualified with the Royal Academy of Dance to teach their Silver Swans programme. I will be starting classes after half term but in the mean time - please join me for a magical afternoons dance class - dancing with your Nana, Mummy, Auntie, Daddy or your Grandchild. Spaces will be limited so it's first come, first served. No experience necessary - come & share the magic of dance with a loved one.

Christmas Jumper & Charity Week

Christmas Fun Week

Our last week of term will be our Christmas Jumper Charity Week. All students are invited to dress up for Christmas & bring £1 donation to our chosen charity, which for this term is Shelter.
