Elite Academy of Dance Newsletter – September 2016


Unfortunately Tom and Mark have informed us this week that they are no longer able to continue with tumble classes due to other commitments that they have with their gymnastic club. Therefore we are very sad to say we will no longer be able to run these sessions, but we will however take what we have learned with them and continue to use these skills in our Acro classes.

Timetable changes:

We will therefore need to make some changes to our timetable and these changes will start from Monday 12th September 2016. This will mean that some children will now need to come on alternative days, we hope that this will not be too much of a problem for anyone. We do regularly need to alter our timetable in order for students to progress through the grades. The new timetable will be available from the Elite Reception desk and will also be on the school notice board and website. If you do have any questions regarding the timetable please do not hesitate to speak to us. Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.

Festival Dancers

For those of you who have been offered a place at the festival this year private lessons will be available on a Wednesday evening in studio 2 with Miss Hannah. These will be limited to half an hour slots and you can book yourself in on the Elite Notice Board. The festival timetable is still to be confirmed but as soon as we have received it we will inform you of your day and time.

2017 School Show: Save the Date!!!!

We have the date for the show. Show week will be 30th Jan 2017 – 4th February 2017. Please keep this week free if you would like to take part in the show. Full details will follow after October half term.

December ISTD Exams

We will not be running ISTD Tap and Modern Theatre exams this December, however students will still be working towards them. We feel that as the grades get harder the children need more time to learn the correct technique and we do not want to rush them through. As well as the festival and the show we will now be running just one exam session a year instead of two (unless students are ready then we will submit them for examination, they wont be held back) we feel this will be more beneficial to our students development.

IDTA Exam Results and Award Presentation

We will be holding an exam presentation again this year. Please keep Saturday 24th September free (provisional date) if you took an IDTA exam in the summer. We are awaiting confirmation of this date but will let everyone know for definite ASAP.

Miss Lisa’s Maternity Leave

Miss Lisa will be popping into dancing and teaching a few hours again over the next term, however she will not be returning back from maternity leave full time until December. Miss Lisa would like to thank you all for understanding and says it has been lovely for her to spend quality time with her newborn baby. I know we are all very excited for her return!
