Look at the beautiful sunlight streaming through the magnificent windows of the Manhattan Style Loft Studio! 🥰🥰 Miss Lucy is our resident Ballerina and this studio is the HQ of Hawthorne School of Dance and Blossom Ballet. What an enchanting magical space to learn to dance! 🥰🥰
Introducing our very own resident ballerina Miss Lucy! Miss Lucy is the founder and owner of Blossom Ballet for pre schoolers and Hawthorne School of Dance. Her school has been open for 11 years. Miss Lucy trained at The London Studio Centre, and has taught for 18 years. Incredible!
Miss Lucy is so talented, she teaches right here in our church in the Manhattan Style Loft Studio. It’s our secret hidden gem! In the heart of Windsor, just a stones throw away from Windsor Castle, your child can be taught all genres of dance by the incredibly talented Miss Lucy and her creative team. Miss Lucy has been running her classes for many years from the Loft Studio and we all just adore welcoming her ballet family at the cafe. Lucy is the most amazing dance teacher you could ask for. Her classes are so beautiful and magical that parents literally cry with joy. Lucy thank you for choosing our building to share your magic within the community. We Love you! 🥰🩰

Hey everyone - just a little reminder, Jingle Jangle comes out tomorrow on Netflix (it would have been in cinemas too, if it weren't for the lock down !) ... it'll be a great family viewing night, and quite a few of us locals put our hearts into it. Hope you enjoy the magic and do tell me what you thought! xx Trailer here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYPUYVgwLWY](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYPUYVgwLWY&fbclid=IwAR35HnRaRz0D7UluE0ywBERF9XZw40BsvIISqIpx8IKDMKbZSLKANrNanD4) Oh and p.s. It's set at Xmas time, but it's not ABOUT Xmas ... so don't worry about being too early! And it's 2020 so what the hell anyway :)
If anyone has any ballet and contemporary uniform for a 10 year old they are selling please do let me know. Thank you. X

HSOD afternoon and weekend classes.

NO CARS - PLEASE DO NOT PARK OR HOVER ON RUSSELL STREET AT THE BACK GATES AT ANY TIME.

Let’s be good neighbours 🤞🏻🙌🏻🤞🏻

Unfortunately, the neighbours have expressed their annoyance (understandably) about the car congestion outside their homes in the evenings and at weekends.

We will now no longer be signing in/out any dancers at the back gates.

All parents must collect from the back door on foot only promptly at the end of class.

Please park locally and walk down the road to and from the studio.

If you are not responsible for the pick up/drop off, please pass on this message to the parent / career who is.

Please encourage other parents you see in their cars outside the studio to move away from the back of the studio and off Russell Street.

For the older dancers whose parents are happy for their daughter to walk to meet them off Russell Street, please email me to give this consent.

Thanks so much for your understanding

TODAY’S CLASSES WILL BE TAUGHT BY MISS CHRISTINA
(WHO THE DANCERS ARE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH)
AND ASSISTED BY MISS ANNABEL (WHO THEY WILL THEN SEE AGAIN AT THE THEATRE).

UNFORTUNATELY, I AM NOT ABLE TO TEACH FOR A FEW DAYS AS I HAVE A CENTRAL CORONIAL ABRASION IN MY RIGHT EYE WHICH IS QUITE PAINFUL AND LIMITING MY VISION.

IT’S ALWAYS A DIFFICULT DECISION TO TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS AWAY FROM THE STUDIO BUT I AM ADVISED TO REST IN DARKNESS AND AVOID SCREENS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO ALLOW FOR MY VISION TO RECOVER.

I’LL ALSO BE TRYING TO TAKE A DAY OR SO AWAY FROM EMAILS AND SHOW PLANNING BUT IF YOU DO HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL ABOUT THE SHOW, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I’LL GET BACK TO YOU LATER IN THE WEEK.

26/01/2022

In order to align our term dates with the local state schools, please be advised that we have amended our February half term dates;

We shall be closed and have no classes from

Saturday 19th until Friday 25th February.

The last class of the first half of term will be on Friday 18th February.

We’ll then return from Saturday 26th February meaning that there are no changes to the planned Saturday dates.

I hope this allows for less disruption to classes but apologies if this does inconvenience anyone.

Thank you

Call for Chaperones….

All of our backstage helpers are Chaperones; interviewed, supported and verified by the wonderful Children’s Services team at their local council. The Chaperones will proudly display their licences when helping at the theatre.

Thank you to the mums who have volunteered to be Chaperones, the show quite simply could not go ahead without you.

But…… We still need more help. Please, if you would consider being a chaperone for the May performances, please email so that I can forward you the details.

Huge thank you, Lucy

As always, the teachers and I are incredibly proud of the ballerinas who took their ISTD Level 1, Level 2 and Grade 3 Ballet Exams in December. The results are in, with 100% pass rate celebrating Passes, Merits and Distinctions. Congratulations dancers. It’s been a different kind of preparation for the past 18 months with lots of zoom and interrupted learning but your dedication and passion shone through.

Picture from July 2019 (when I was young and fresh) but it’s one of favs 💙

🌍 Did you know that we try our very best to re use and rotate the beautiful costumes so that all those gorgeous sequins don’t just end up worn once and then collecting dust?

🩰 Each year, we add to the collection buying good quality costumes that will last through the years and our lovely sewing mum’s update and adapt the costumes to refresh the look.

🌸 Reusing and recycling costumes also keeps the costs down for our families meaning that they don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds on costumes to wear just once.

💫 It’s always also so lovely to see the dancers excited and keen to try on and wear costumes worn by their older peers.

Today we welcome the very talented Miss Hannah to the team.

Miss Hannah will assist Miss Alice on Saturday mornings at the Old Court for classes from pre-school level to Grade 3. Miss Hannah trained at London Studio Centre (same as Miss Lucy) and has just ended a busy Panto season working as a professional dancer.

Welcome Miss Hannah, we look forward to many magical classes with you 🌸🩰💫
