Our Minis enjoyed a fabulous Gymnastic Dance Workshop with Miss Bryony this afternoon.
A fabulous new offering for SSD students coming permanently from April.


Introducing our 2023 Dance Captains... Grace & Megan.

Always striving to be the very best that they can be, as performers they embrace every opportunity to shine, work well within a team and push themselves individually.
In training they take the positives and learn from their feedback. They support their peers, demonstrate work and ask for help and advice when needed.

They are true advocates of our school, and we are delighted to have them at the helm of our student support network.

Dame Beryl Grey, British ballerina with ‘all the gifts’, dies aged 95

So saddened to hear of the passing of Dame Beryl Grey, an advocate for ballet all around the world, Dame Beryl became a principal for the royal ballet aged just 15 before becoming the first British ballerina to work with the Bolshoi ballet of Russia.
Our thoughts are with her family and everyone who has been inspired by her lifelong passion for balletic arts...
RIP Dame Beryl

Dame Beryl Grey, British ballerina with ‘all the gifts’, dies aged 95 Shooting to fame as a teenager with the Royal Ballet, Grey won international acclaim as a dancer and was artistic director of the company that became English National Ballet

Amanda Pickard ooh la la


It’s big… it’s bright… it's a brand-spanking new production of ‘the original showbiz musical', 42nd Street!

Jonathan Church (Singin' In The Rain, The Drifters Girl) directs the iconic song-and-dance spectacular. 42nd Street is a timeless and inspiring showbiz fairy tale that combines breathtaking tap dance routines, backstage intrigue, classic romance and delightful comedy to dazzling effect. It’s simply irresistible!

Fresh off the bus from small-town America, young and beautiful Peggy Sawyer arrives in New York City dreaming of her name in lights. She quickly catches the eye of a big-time director and lands a spot in the chorus line of Broadway’s newest show… and when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy gets her shot at stardom.
