Curtains Up – nearly!

Hi all,

Just to let you all know we are in classes as normal this Saturday. Dress rehearsal is this Sunday, 1st of July from 10.00am at St Michael’s. Please bring all costumes and accessories.

Next week on Friday 6th July we will have another dress rehearsal from 4.00pm at St Michael’s. This will take place instead of the Saturday classes on the 7th.

Please make sure that you arrive at about 5.45 before each show.

Make up will be needed. A decent base, blusher, red lipstick, eyeliner and blue eyeshadow.

Tinies – hair in pigtails

Primary and grade ones – Two french plaits for tap and jazz, for ballet grade ones will need a bun.

Grade 2 ballet – Dutch plait across the front of the head and into a bun. For their modern dance just take the bun out and put into 2 low pigtails with the red ribbon.

Primary ballet doing Moana will need white knickers over their tan tights.

Older students I think are sorted with how they’re having their hair.

Please make sure all hair accessories are gripped in tightly. Especially the wigs for Trolls!

Hope you’re all looking forward to the show, I’m sure it’ll be fantastic.

Thanks everyone

Hello everyone,

We are very close now to the curtain up on ‘Hooked on Dance 2018’ ! I’m sure that you and all the children are looking forward to what I’m sure will be another successful show!

Some of you may not know this, but I am about to enter my 50th year of teaching! (The school was opened in 1969). I hope that you can all realise how proud I am of that!

My pride extends to all pupils, past and present, who have experienced the joy of Dance.

There have been many successes in professional capacities — West End performances, Cruise Ships, Pantomime etc.

As always, there will be a priority sales day when you can choose and buy your seats for any of the performances, this will be on 2nd June at 10.00am and will be held at St. Michael’s High School, Astley Rd. Chorley PR71RS. Make sure you’re there to make sure you get the seats that you would like (all are numbered). Please note that payment must be by cash only — cheques will not be accepted.

Many thanks to you all and a huge thankyou to all staff for their hard work throughout all the exam sessions recently and of course, now, the show!
