SPRING TERM 2022 NEWSLETTER

Dear Parents,

 

I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the new year? We had a very successful Autumn Term with a large exam session in December, our students did extremely well given much of their exam work was learnt online over lockdown. 2022 is set to be a fun year for LDA, all of the show paperwork is signed and we look forward to starting the show process! Your show letters will be with you by the start of term and I can't wait to see lots of our students on stage in July. The show really is a special time where dance memories are made, and the experience remembered for years to come! Alongside the show, some of our students (covid pending) will be heading into London on the 9th January to experience a West End workshop and to watch “Bring it on” The Musical! More performance opportunities are starting to open again, which will allow us to offer more experiences like this in the future, and also allow us to restart our dance companies, auditioning around October. I hope you have a lovely Spring term at LDA, here’s to the new year!

UNIFORM


Our uniform supply is slowly getting back to normal. Thank you so much for your patience. The only item we are still out of stock of is the "pink skirted leotards". They were due in December but the delivery has been put back multiple times. We are still awaiting an update but certainly feel it will be in any day now. All other items are now available through Helen at the uniform shop or via the online shop. We have new dance shoe bags, which can be personalised!

They are only £6 and perfect for keeping Ballet, Jazz or Tap shoes together!
