Dear Parents and Students of Simply Dance Academy,
At last, we have the pleasure to announce that our Bi-Annual show will be taking place on the 19th and 20th March 2022 at the People’s Theatre in Jesmond : Let’s Dance
Students from Pre-Primary and above will be given the opportunity to perform a dance routine, with their classmates, in the dance style they study. This means that if your dancer studies three dance styles (or takes three classes) then they’ll perform three dances.
We’ve been asked by the Theatre to reduce the amount of people we have back stage in any given show. This means we’re going to split the Academy over the two days.
Dancers who take class in Westmoor will perform on Saturday 19th March 2022
Dancers who take class in Earsdon will perform Sunday 20th March 2022
A very small number of children take classes in both venues. These children will perform on both days, doing their Westmoor class dance on the Saturday and their Earsdon class dance on the Sunday. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
The senior Grade 4 and Grade 5 dancers participate on both days.
Students will be bringing home a permission slip and health questionnaire which must be completed, signed (by an appropriate adult) and returned before they can take part in the show. Please look out for it in the coming weeks.
As you can imagine, this is always an exciting time for the students and teachers alike. The students learn so much at this point in our academic calendar. However, we’re unable to access this experience for the students without the valuable assistance of chaperones and helpers. If you’re able, and would like to help back stage please let us know.
Tickets usually go on sale roughly three months before show weekend and can be bought from The People’s Theatre box office. We’ll let you know the exact date as soon as we get it.
The performance will be costumed and as in previous years, we’ll try our utmost to keep costs down for parents.
Please note that the children in Nursery class will not be participating in this event. It’s too long a day for the little ones.
We look forward in seeing the children’s confidence, performance skills and musicality develop over the rehearsal period and hope it will give them fond memories that last a lifetime.
The Simply Dance Team
