Hello Students and Parents!

Spring is here!! Looking forward to some sunshine and lighter nights - don't forget clocks go forward on Sunday 31st March (which also happens to be Mother's day!)


This month rehearsals get underway for our trip to the Royal Albert Hall. Please make sure you collect a rehearsal schedule from the Studio as some of the rehearsals will be held at different premises.


Our student of the month for February is one of our senior students - Neave Henshaw. Neave has recently added Contemporary and Commercial classes to her usual Tap and Modern and excelled in her performance as a senior dancer in Sleeping Beauty at the Forum Theatre. Neave is also part of the group going to dance at the Royal Albert Hall. Well done Neave - Keep up the good work!


Not to be missed! Toby and Mollie Shellard are appearing in Half a Sixpence at Middlesbrough Theatre 21st-23rd March. We are organising a school trip on Thursday 21st March so if you would like to join us please see a member of staff.


The next set of exams will take place in Studio 2 on Sunday 24th March. Academy will still be running but will be held in Studio 1. Please see exam timetable on our noticeboard.


Be sure to get your entry forms for our Easter Egg Decorating and colouring competition and also for the Easter Hamper Raffle (winner will be drawn on Saturday 20th April) - Our Clairvoyant night on 11th April at Greys road Institute is now SOLD OUT - Thanks to Maxine, Rachel and the rest of the fundraising group for all their efforts!

Pirouette Dancewear

Our very own dancewear shop, Pirouette, launches its new range of Bloch dancewear and shoes this month. We keep our prices as low as possible for our students but we are also running a loyalty card scheme so make sure you get yours so you can save up discounts to spend in the studio. We really appreciate your custom as our shop supports our school and its teachers too!


In 2018 we reinforced our policy for students to attend class only in our uniform colours, except for Freestyle classes where we adopt a much more relaxed approach. Our uniform colours are pink and black and have proved very popular especially with our exclusive range and personalised material. Please see our range in our studio shop, Pirouette.

Are you interested in getting involved in some exciting fund-raising events? Friends of Heritage Dance Studio is a parents group who help to organise events to raise money for costumes, props etc. At Heritage Dance Studio we are dedicated to providing performance opportunities for our students and a little help goes a long way!!
