Monday Mix Up !
December 9, 2018
As we approach the new year, you may have seen that we are offering a new class from January!
Natalie Dodd has taken the decision to move her career in way that takes her away from WDS on a Monday night. We are sad to see her go, but wish her the very best in her new ventures and insist that she is not a stranger to us!!
So, with Natalie moving on, we have been given the opportunity to mix up Mondays!
From January we welcome to the teaching team :
- Laura Porter ! She will be taking on the Beginners Courses at 6:30pm, and introduce a BRAND NEW Lyrical Jazz class at 7:30pm.
- Helen Ledsome ! Helen will turn her dancing shoes to teaching the Improvers Tap class at 8:30pm.
Gotta Dance! Montage
November 12, 2018
For the last few years we have started our shows with a 'Montage' of dances of different styles joined together with a single theme. This year we can reveal that the theme for the Gotta Dance! Montage is based on the musical City of Angels.
There will be three blocks or choreography, and we are looking for dancers to sign-up for the first and third part (yes, you can sign-up for both parts if you want).
The three Parts and the relevant Choreographers are as follows:
- Part One - With Every Breath I Take - Laura Porter/Sharp
- Part Two - Fiesta (Men only) - Jen Dyson
- Part Three - Finale - Jen Dyson
For this show we are making a change to the way in which the Montage choreography is taught. Instead of fighting for class time with other pieces all of the Montage choreography rehearsals will be held on Sundays.
The dates for the rehearsals are 13th January, 27th January, 3rd February, 10th February and 3rd March 2019 and the rehearsals are at 10:00am to 11:30am for Part One, and 11:30am to 1:00pm for Part Three.
If you are interested, and you can commit to the Sunday dates, sign-up sheets are on the studio notice board.
Please sign-up before 1st December.
