Best of luck to Miss Marie and all the dancers this weekend!
Hi, does anyone need a pair of tap shoes (size 12)? I have some that are in good condition and happy to find them a new home. I can bring to Tilehurst on Wednesdays and Fridays, just let me know. You can message me on 07899 790405, thank you x
Has anyone daughter from Marie’s Friday 5pm tap class at the cornwell centre accidentally swapped taps shoes? My daughter has come home with a pair of 1 1/2 and hers are a 13? Thanks
Is anyone interested in these? Size 0 and 1. Might be good as a spare for someone. Free on collection from tilehurst.
What an amazing show. Well done to everyone involved. So many stars all guided by Miss Marie ###

Children can start from as young as the age of two and a half, learning Ballet throu

[02/26/21]   **Returning to face to face classes**

26th February 2021

Dear Parents

I am delighted that we will be able to return to face-to-face teaching after the Easter holidays. Face-to-face children’s lessons will resume the week beginning Monday 19th April and it is extremely likely that the same procedures and practices that were in place from September - December will be in place when we return. More details and class time-table will follow nearer the time.

Unfortunately, I have made the regrettable decision to cancel the dance show that was planned for May this year. I'm sure you will understand that this wasn't a decision I made lightly. Restrictions are not due to be lifted by the 16th May and this would have meant that the show wouldn't have been a fun and enjoyable experience for the pupils. I'm hoping our dance show in 2022 will be the biggest and best one yet! This is planned for the 5th and 6th March 2022, please put these dates into your diary.

I look forward to seeing you all in person very soon.

Kind regards

Miss Marie 💜

[01/02/21]   ****This term update****

02/01/2021

Dear Parents

As we start this New Year facing a period of uncertainty, I wanted to reassure you that over the next few months I will do my absolute best to keep us dancing! Unfortunately tier 4 restrictions mean that face to face classes are not allowed to take place. When we move to tier 3 face to face lessons can resume.

This means that I will return to teaching classes remotely, via zoom, from Monday 18th January. For the first 3 weeks these classes will be free of charge to make up for lessons cancelled in November. Following this I will invoice you for all future classes. Classes will cost £3.50 per 30 minutes per student. I understand that remote dance lessons do not work for every child. Therefore, if you wish for your child to opt out of dance lessons, I ask that you let me know this after the initial 3 weeks. There won’t be any online teaching over February half term.

Zoom instructions and what class your son/ daughter will be in, will be emailed over the next few weeks.

Exams are unfortunately not able to take place in January/ February. For those students who were booked in for these, I’ll be in touch very soon.

The show is still booked for the 16th and 23rd May. This term we will be working on the new show dances in every lesson, something fresh and new for the students to look forward to.

I will, as always, do my absolute best to keep the students dancing and motivated in what is a challenging time for us all.

Stay safe and hopefully I will see you all very soon.

Best wishes,

Miss Marie 💜

[12/24/20]   Thank you for all the wonderful cards and gifts, Miss Marie has been thoroughly spoilt this year. I know it’s been a very different year but I am so grateful for us to of been able to dance face to face in tier 2 and 3. Let’s hope we can be back there again very soon. Here’s a little video I put together, please note the pictures of students together are siblings.

I wish you all a very safe and Merry Christmas and will keep my fingers crossed that we can return and dance in the New Year.

With love,

Miss Marie 💜

[12/19/20]   19/12/20

Please note ALL CHILDREN’S DANCE CLASSES can still go ahead in tier 3. Dancing is on as normal today.

With love,

Miss Marie 💜

[12/14/20]   14/12/2020

Dear Parents

I hope you are all well.

As this week is our last week of dancing, I will be taking photographs and videos of the students. I will then share these with you via the Dance Sensation page.

This week will be a fun and festive week and I would like students to wear something Christmassy in their hair. This could be festive hair clips, hair band, tinsel or a Christmas hat. (If wearing hats, please can you secure the hat with pins). Please can you ensure your child has their hair in a bun or plaits and wears their normal dance uniform.

Next year’s shows will be a little different. We are unable to hire the theatre for a full weekend but the shows will run over two Sundays instead. Please save the dates of the 16th May and 23rd May for the show.

Dancing will resume the week commencing the 4th January 2021 and further information and invoices will follow shortly.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all a very Happy New Year.

Kind regards

Miss Marie 💜

[11/24/20]   After the government announcement last night, I am thrilled that we are allowed to return to classes from next Wednesday 2nd December. Miss Marie can’t wait to get back to teaching, I have missed the students and Adult tappers so much. I’ll be sending out an email tomorrow to all parents, look forward to seeing you all next week 💜🩰💜

10/11/2020

When you receive this 💜feeling so honoured, thank you it’s made Miss Marie’s day 💜xx

[11/01/20]   1st November 2020

Dear Parents

You will have all heard by now the announcement that was made by our Prime Minister last night. Whilst I am absolutely devastated by the news, I recognise that we must do all that we can to fight this virus. With this in mind I have made the decision to cancel all dance classes from the 5th November onwards. My plan is to resume classes again on the 3rd December and to add an extra week of lessons before Christmas so teaching up until the 19th December. I will confirm this nearer to the time.

I have also made the decision that I will not be running zoom classes during the period of the lockdown but we will have a four week break instead. However, I am very aware that some students have their exams approaching and therefore I will put together some individual dancing videos which I will send to you via a private Whatsapp message. Please do encourage your child to watch these and to practice.

I am aware that you have paid for dance lessons during the four week break but won't have paid for the additional week before Christmas. Therefore I will deduct the cost of three weeks fees for dancing from your invoice for the Spring term.

I am really looking forward to seeing the students on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week and hope that everyone keeps safe and well during this time.

With very warm wishes

Miss Marie 💜

[10/21/20]   21/10/2020

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for all the wonderful support, positive comments and emails I have received regarding my classes. It’s been amazing to teach and see your children over the last 7 weeks and returning to some normality.

There will be no classes running over half term from 26th-31st October.

Classes will run as normal until the end of the week, with classes taking place on the 23rd and 24th October.

I hope you all have a wonderful half term and will look forward to seeing you all very soon.

With love,

Miss Marie 💜

Dear Parents and Students,

You will have seen the news about no more than 6 people gathering together socially. At the moment I believe that this does not apply to my dance school as schools and sporting associations appear to be exempt. However, I will wait for the full list of exemptions and if there are any changes I will let you know. As things stand, I will continue with dance lessons as planned.

Best regards,

Miss Marie

[09/07/20]   **Our Dance classes are back up and running today from Monday 7th September ***

Please arrive and pick up on time. Take note of the signs and sanitising station. Entrance for students today at The Westwood Club is as normal but students will be exiting by the front door.
