Lost Property

We have a lost property basket in the changing room at the studio and all items left will be put in there.

Please note that this basket is cleared out at the end of each term, so please check if you have lost something.

Follow Us!

We are on Facebook and Twitter so please feel free to follow us to receive more updates and news.

Bun Kits For Sale

As a neat bun is advised for our ballet students, we thought it would be helpful to put together some bun kits to help make things easier. Each kit includes instructions and all the required hair accessories and can be purchased from the office for just £2.50.

Emergency Contact Number

We now have a mobile number which you can text or call to quickly contact us. The number is 07444 452924. Please store this number in your phones (or wherever you keep this sort of information!) and use it when:

1. You are stuck in traffic and will be late, or won’t make it at all
2. You collect a child from school that day because they are poorly and you won’t be bringing them to class
3. You are delayed for pick up at the end of class and want us to hold onto your child safely until you get here

We will use it to text or call you in the event of an emergency or a sudden cancellation of class - so by storing this number, you know who the call/text is from.

BBC Entertainment and Arts
This is a great page on the BBC website to keep an eye on. They usually have a few interesting videos and articles about dance, arts reviews and theatre.

Welcome Performances- ROH

Welcome Performances are for families who have never been to a ballet or opera at the Royal Opera House before. You don’t need to know anything about it either – just come along and give it a try.

Tickets are only £5–£20.

Check their website throughout the year for details of the next Welcome Performances.

If you would like further information, please call the opera house on +44 (0)20 7212 9684 or email

You can also find more information on their website:

Practise at home and on the go!

If you are thinking of practising ballet at home (which we hope you are!) we suggest downloading the RAD app which is a fantastic little tool. It includes all of the syllabus work for each grade so there really is no excuse not to practise!

We also keep a number of syllabus CDs in the office, this also includes ISTD classes, which you are welcome to borrow for practising at home.

Dance Ticks All The Boxes!
