We would like to submit entries for this exam as soon as possible, and as it’s a busy time for all, please carefully look at the possible dates below and advise immediately of any impossible dates for you.
The proposed dates are:

  • Friday 22nd June, Wednesday 27th June & Monday 2nd July

If any of these dates clash with a commitment elsewhere please get in touch asap, otherwise we will submit entries on one of those chosen dates. Fees are non refundable after entries have been submitted unless there is an injury or illness at time of exam.
Thank you for your support with this.

Modern & Tap exams
We will be holding Modern & Tap exams on May 16th (TBC) and again in mid July. We can only have 1 day at a time so if your child is not selected for the session in May, they will potentially be entered for the July session. (Please refer to our exam submission policy on our website here.). Exam consent forms for the May session will be going out in the next few days.

Summer Leavers Showcase
Our leavers showcase will take place on Saturday 14th July at 1.30 & 3.30pm in studio 1. This is the last day of term except for any students taking Mod/Tap exams the following week. More details will follow next term.

New GCSE & A Level Dance course commencing September 2018
Any prospective students wishing to take up our new courses in September either GCSE or A level are invited to come to our choreography sharing at 3pm on Sunday 22nd April to see the work achieved by our current GCSE students.
There will also be an information evening in May (date tbc) for  enrolment and a discussion in more detail about the courses in September.
If your child is thinking about doing either course and is in year 8 or above for GCSE or year 10 & above for A-level, please email me direct on [email protected] with your interest.

GCSE Dance
The entries for the Summer 2018 exam have been submitted to AQA and I shall be sending an invoice home via students to cover the entrance fee.

The students are busily creating their choreography for submission in April. In the past we have always set aside a couple of hours to share their work with parents in preparation for performing their choreography to the external examiner. Therefore we would like to invite all parents of our GCSE group to attend a sharing on Sunday 22nd April at 3pm in studio 1.

The studios are available throughout the Easter holidays, let me know in advance so everyone gets to use the space. There will be extra sessions to rehearse your choreography on Saturday 14th April, please all do your best to attend as this will effect everyone. Times for this session will be confirmed at the next lesson on Wednesday.

All students: Please add the date of the GCSE written paper to your exam timetable: Tuesday 19th June 1pm. A confirmation of entry will be handed out when I receive them from the examining board.
