This has been a super short term. Lots of hard work culminating in dance exams on Sunday 20th March. This year due to the varying term times we are having a 3 week break for Easter. Returning on Monday 11th April, when we will be back at Acorns Primary school in Long Compton for Adult Tap also. Then the real hard work starts as we prepare for our bi annual show on july 9th.
Gosh is it me or have the summer holidays flown by this year?
The new term starts back at Dance with Dash the week begining Monday 7th September with our new timetable running from then.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all and getting back into some kind of routine. If you are thinking of joining us or maybe trying a new dance style then please get in contact to book a free no obligation trial class. If you are needing new dance kit for the new term then drop me an email as i will be placing an order Tuesday 1st september!
See you soon

Lots of new grades underway also following dance exams in June. Again 100% pass rate with fantastic results. 8 Distinctions, 22 Merits and 1 Pass.
I am now looking to September and the new September timetable and dates are now live. We have a new Pre-Primary Tap at 9.30 on a Saturday plus Adult ballet and a few time changes foloowing exams and higher grades. I am aware I am a pre school class short and am hoping to add another soon to a Monday afternoon?? Please dont forget to pick up a new time table and newsletter from me before the term ends.
Dance with Dash are also registered to take part in the Children in Need Tapathon, via The performers project again and we will start rehearsing for this over the coming months. This years routine is to 'uptown funk' Let me know if you want to take part, everyone is welcome whatever your ability.

I am running a free adult ballet class on Thursday 21st May 7.30-8.30 at The Townsned hall so please book on if you are interested. I am then hoping for this to be a regular class from Thursday 4th June.
To end the term on Saturday 18th July we will be having an informal sharing performance and picnic at The Townsend hall.
Looking forward to seeing you all and also some warmer weather!
