Autumn Term 2017 at React Dance Academy
Thank you all so much for a wonderful Intro week last week – we are so excited to get down to dancing now! So here is a brief overview of what is happening this term!
So we work as much as we can with school terms so we are on our half term break from ‘regular classes’ from October 23rd to 29th. But we will be confirming 3 workshops that week in the next couple of weeks.
So term has started properly and we are focusing on developing our technique. There may be lots of new words and phrases (some French) to learn, as well as practicing at home. Have patience – practice will help!
Half term workshops
- Monday 23rd October – Ballet and lyrical
- Wednesday 25th October – Modern Jazz and Street
- Thursday 26th October – Musical Mayhem – Play in an afternoon!
Christmas Showcase (times tbc)
- Run through rehearsal – all cast Saturday 9th December 11am to 1pm
- Dress rehearsal – all cast – Thursday 14th December 4pm to 6pm
- Show Day – Saturday 16th December – attendance from 1pm to 7pm. Shows at 2pm and 5pm
This first half of the term we will be working on technique – building our confidence with exercises, steps, and phrases. After half term we are in SHOWMODE!
Christmas will be here as we prepare for our “Christmas Memories” Christmas Tale – inspired by A Christmas Carol, The Nutcracker, The Grinch who stole Christmas, The Elves and the Shoemaker – filled with dance and christmas magic!
As mentioned – we’d love all dancers to have our leotard – two orders will be placed before they are required wear at our show (estimated prices £15-£20) so there is time to save or offer as a birthday present. Certain classes will requires shoes – ballet and tap especially, ideally all to have their own jazz shoes too
Order forms will be available at each class and via email – any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Attendance as often as possible is required for your dancer to get the most out of being part of our group, and also so they can keep up. Please do get in touch if regular attendance may be an issue!
