Free Trial and Bring a Friend Week

by studioD on November 15, 2017 , No comments

To celebrate the end of 2017, Studio D is holding a free trial week in the week after the concert.  Any enrolled student or new interested children may attend any class during the week of Monday 20th November – Saturday 25th November. Students may also bring a friend from outside Studio D to class.

Studio D students should wear their normal class uniform to these classes. Friends and interested children should wear clothing suitable for dance, eg. bike shorts, leggings etc…

Teachers will ensure classes include the new students and are a fun introduction to dance. It would be a great idea for current students to attend classes they wish to be in next year to get a taste for the class. Please refer to the timetable page on the website for when classes are held, all classes will run at their normally scheduled time.

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.
