Welcome to the website for the
Susan Handy School of Dancing

 

This is the place to come to find out what's going on and coming up. There's always lots happening, see it here first.


The summer half term finishes THIS FRIDAY 22nd May. There are NO CLASSES ON BOTH Saturday 23rd and 30th May (with the exception of Woking who have classes 23rd May but not 31st May or 6th June)- so enjoy the sunshine! Classes restart on Monday 1st June.
Please ensure all your term fees are paid by Saturday 23rd MAY to avoid the £20 surcharge.

If you would like your child to auditon for the Elite Dance Team, please send back the form and entry fee of £5 by 7th June. Auditions are scheduled for Saturday 27th June but should you not be able to make this date - don't be put off as we will have another date the following week - more than likely to be the Friday.

Lastly, In light of the second earthquake in Nepal last week and the news that tens of thousands are without shelter following the disaster, and the likelihood of shelter not being provided in time for the Monsoon season; a number of parents have emailed the office to say can we perhaps do a second round of fundraising for the disaster fund.

We would therefore like to run another MUFTI WEEK for the first week after the half term break. Monday 1st June - Saturday 6th June. Again all pupils can attend any of their classes in their own clothes / costumes as long as they can still dance. Contributions of £1 would be appreciated (although I do understand that many of you already contributed more than this during the first week and if you would rather not again, this is fine).

Many thanks again for your support - to date we have raised £588 which is BRILLIANT!

Have a wonderful Half term break.

GRADES vs STANDARDS

Many parents ask what the difference is between Grade exams and Standard exams and classes. We have therefore included this information in our downloads section but it also has been in previous school newsletters. Many thanks.
