School News


Another term has flown by and what a busy term it’s been! Well done to everyone who took part in our School Showcase and helped to give Jenny such a fabulous send off. We were overwhelmed by the love and support and we cannot thank you enough.

Congratulations to all our pupils who have taken Ballet, Tap and Modern exams this term as well as those who have been busy showcasing the school at outside performances. We are delighted to announce that everyone achieved merits and distinctions.

We would also like to take this opportunity to officially welcome ballet teachers Summer Campbell and Nicolle Rushton who will be joining our team.

Our Annie Jr! Summer School was a wonderful success so thank you to everyone who took part and came to watch the show. Well done to our four students who have spent time at the Surrey Youth Ballet Summer Intensive.

INVOICES:  We have gone paperless! Invoices have been sent out via email. A new payment structure has been implemented, introducing multiple class discounts in place of our current system.

We have the following new classes lined up for September 2019:
Progressive Ballet Technique – a strengthening class focusing on core stability and ballet technique.
Adult Ballet – This is an open level class suitable for those who are new to ballet or those who have some dance/ballet experience. 
Knaphill Acro – We are introducing another Acro class, at our Knaphill branch. Suitable for ages 5-12 yrs.
Senior Freework & Conditioning – This is a non-syllabus class which focuses on technique, strength and conditioning as well as giving students an opportunity to try a number of dance styles. After our warm up, stretch and conditioning part of the class, students work on across the floor movements such as kicks, turns and leaps before moving on to choreography. Styles of dance previously covered include fosse jazz, commercial, lyrical & contemporary and students work on one dance for a few weeks before moving on to another genre. This class is also involved in numerous optional performances throughout the year including INNOVATE (a contemporary dance platform), WOKING SLAM (Hip Hop dance Show) and Woking Party in the Park.


The exam dates for ISTD Tap and Modern Exams are Wednesday 11th and Friday 13th December 2019. 
RAD Ballet exams will be held between 15th November 2019 and 30th November 2019.
Our Next Show is scheduled for Friday 3rd & Saturday, 4th April 2020 @ Rhoda McGaw Theatre, Woking. Students taking part will be required to attend a full school rehearsal on Sunday, 15th March 2020, as well as rehearsals in the theatre, week beginning Sunday, 29th March 2020.
