I have a pair of white tap shoes available, ladies size 7. Can anyone use these?

Shoes are used but in good condition. They will be cleaned with anti-bacterial cleaner before collection/delivery.
This looks like a wonderful exhibition, "Inside the Archives of the Royal Academy of Dance" at the V&A from early December.

Immediately thought of you when I saw this!
Finally found the tapathon routine x
I hope you donโ€™t mind me posting this, but wondered if your students might be interested. Iโ€™m a local author, and dance teacher. I have just published my first children's story. Jasmine's Magic Dance Shoes.

Jasmine goes to a Ballroom dance class. She buys a pair of dance shoes which turn out to have a magic power, and her dancing improves overnight. Her dance teacher is so impressed that the search begins to find her a dance partner. They enter competitions, and win lots of trophies, then they get to dance in a competition at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, but will it go as planned?

This is a short story aimed at 4 - 8 years old with over 30 colour illustrations, but suitable for any age if they are interested in dancing, or just love a story with a twist. It is approx 4000 words, so older children can read it themselves, and younger children can have it read to them. When I searched for children's books about dancing, I found lots of books about ballet, but none about ballroom. It will give you an insight into the world of ballroom dancing with the extra sparkle of some magic.

Available to buy from The Book Shop, Lee on Solent High Street, PO13 9DD or order from both prized at ยฃ5.50

I will be on Radio Solent with Julian Clegg on Friday 14th June at approx 7.25am talking about the book. Also, will be doing a book signing at The Book Shop, Lee on Solent on Saturday 15th June between 11am - 2pm. Hope to see you there.
Do the children arrive in costumes tomorrow night, or bring them with them? Thank you x
Clever show experienced parents..... Where's the best place to park for The Point!? X
Oh no, we have a terrible clash!! Jasmine's (primary tap) first school disco is on Wednesday 27th March ending at 5.30pm ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ™ˆ. What the absolute latest she could come to rehearsal?! Thank you. Nicky Hayler
Wow Amazing opportunity, seniors take a look and see if you're interested xx
Does anyone have a pair of child size 9 or 9.5 tap shoes wishing for a new owner?

Please can everyone who went to the summer school check their kit for size one red tap outfit belonging to Theoni M-J. We could really do with having it back. Thank you! ###

Many thanks for everyoneโ€™s support with our fancy dress week and Tapathon event. We raised a fabulous ยฃ214.00 which has been paid to the Children in Need Charitable Trust.

Fancy dress week was absolutely great with a host of amazing costumes but the class prize goes to the originality of grade 6 modern who all came dressed as their Dads. Well done!! We await confirmation of our record breaking attempt for as many dancers tap dancing the same routine simultaneously nationwide - fingers crossed!!
Finally please book your tickets for our winter Spectacular. Now on sale from Thornden Hall. Do let us know if you can help to coordinate costumes
Thank you

Well done everyone who took exams today. Hottest day of the year but you all looked cool and super smart.
Now itโ€™s time for the fun to begin at summer school next week.



Laura started dancing at 3 years old and immediately fell in love with it!! She had much success competing in competitions, performing in shows and pantomimes before going away to the prestigious Bird College to continue her training. Laura realised that her passion was teaching and has now taught for local schools whilst training for her ISTD DDE exams as well as achieving Pilates teaching qualifications. We are so excited to welcome Laura to our school and look forward to working together.

As we draw nearer to the end of term I would like to announce that after many years Caroline has decided to move onto pastures new and take up a new position. I wish to thank her for all her work and dedication and wish her well in her new ventures. However, on a positive note we now welcome Laura Morris a dynamic and enthusiastic young teacher who will be joining us for Summer School and beyond.

We were delighted to visit The Rainbow Centre today and present them with a cheque for ยฃ2,500. Raised as a result of our amazing production of โ€œCharlie and the Chocolate Factoryโ€. Our talented performance group danced for some very appreciative parents and children who attend the centre and benefit from the great support this wonderful charity provides. Congratulations and a huge thank you to everyone who took part in or helped in any way to make Charlie and the Chocolate Factory such a triumph. xx ๏ฟผ


We are delighted to welcome Jenni Church to our team. Jenni was one of my original pupils who has had a career as a professional dancer and performer. I am particularly pleased that she is returning in the role of teacher. Many of you will already know her from summer school. Jenni is excited to bring all her experience and enthusiasm to the school.


Wishing everyone a truly delicious Easter break. Looking forward to seeing you all for an exciting summer term of dance and fun. First day back 25th April. See you then.


Today was incredible watching our dance show "Charlie and the Chocolate factory" on the big screen. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful experience with us, it was lovely to see so many of you. We are so proud of what everyone achieved. The hard work was immense but it was worth it as the show really was extraordinary. Thank you also to Lauren and her team for creating such an amazing video for us.
