Mother’s Day 2017

Our Mums were invited into class this week to share a class with their children. With preparation for exams happening we had great fun teaching our mums our exam exercises (especially hip sways) and watching them be fairy ballerinas.

Thank you mums for everything you do especially taking us to and from dancing, organising costumes, doing our buns and make up and supporting our dance dreams <3Mothers Day 2017 4 Mothers Day 2017 3 Mothers Day 2017 2 Mothers Day 2017 5

What an amazing day of talented dancers! Congratulations to dancers, student teachers and teachers for all of their hard work. A huge thank you to Kelly Miller our fantastic adjudicator and all of our volunteers, Siobhan, Mairead, Stephanie, Bridget, Kathleen, Melissa, Sarah and Dave.

I was thoroughly impressed with the standard of choreography our dancers performed on the weekend. It was very inspiring to see the creativity of our Studio D dancers and the way in which they executed their dances.

Congratulations too, to our special performances! It was wonderful to see what you have been working on in class and to see such great work so early in the year.
