Dance Show 2022

On 2nd April we held our school dance show. We were delighted to welcome back our audience and showcase the beautiful dancing of our students.  PHOTOS COMING SOON!

2021

Christmas Eve Crib Service

Past and present pupils came together on Christmas Eve to perform a beautiful ballet dance for the St George's Crib service. Well done ladies- it was a lovely way to start Christmas!

 

Our special guest, Mario, was delighted to see you all. 

Tapathon

On Sunday 21st November, 15 of our tappers took part in the Annual tapathon. We are trying to beat the world record for 'The Largest tap dance in multiple venues' as well as raise money for Children in Need. Althrough we didn't beat the record this time, we did contribute to raising over £28,000 for Children in Need.

Compass Christmas Concert

Also on Sunday 21st November, our Grade 4 and 5 ballet and our Grade 5 modern classes performed in the Compass Christmas Concert.

 

It was great fun! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Dance show 2020 

Finally in July we were able to perform our (2020) dance show. The first lockdown came two weeks before we were due to do our show, so to ensure our hardwork didn't go to waste, the students continued to rehearse their routines once we were able to return to face to face classes and by July 2021 we were able to put the show on stage.

 

We weren't able to have an audience and we did have students missing due to isolation, but we filmed all of the routines and were delighted to finally have something to show for all of our hard work. 

2020

Summer workshops

Obviously it was a challenging year for everyone and we weren't able to do all the things that we had planned. 

 

However, we are very proud of the fact that we were still able to hold exams and 56 students took these and passed with great results!

 

Our other achievement this year was holding some face-to-face workshops during the Summer holidays when the restrictions had lifted. This gave us a chance to test out the new social distancing practices which we then used in our regular classes during the Autumn term. 

 

A big thank you to all the teachers, students and parents during this year!

2019

Christmas Eve Crib service ballet

Our lovely ballet students (past and present) took part in the Christmas eve crib serivce at St George's Church Hall. They looked absolutely beautiful. What a wonderful way to get in the Christmas mood!

Compass Christmas Concert

In November our grade 4 modern and grade 1 tap class performed at the Compass Christmas Concert at the Compass Theatre in Ickenham. 

 

Our students not only performed beautifully but also were very supportive of each other and the other community groups who were performing.

Tapathon

In November our tappers participated in the 10th annual Tapathon. We were attempting to break the world record for the largest tap dance in multiple venues which currently stands at 7596 people. 

 

In total across the country there were 7612 so we have in theory broken the record- we are just awaiting final confirmation from the Guinness World Record officials. Check back here for an update in the new year!

 

Regardless of the record, we are proud that the event raised £38,300 for Children in Need and we raised a further £135 on the day with a cake sale. 

Choreography Competition

In June we held our choreography competition. The standard was very high! Well done to all of our competitiors and thank you to Mary Vaughan for adjudicating. 

Hansel and Gretel Opera performance

In February some of our ballet dancers performed with Trinity Orchestra in their performance of Hansel and Gretel. Their routine was choreographed by past pupil Zara Lackenbury Brown. Congratulations to you all- it was brilliant.

2018

Christmas Eve Ballet 2018

Some of our senior ballerina's  (past and present) performed a beautiful routine for the Christmas eve crib service at St George's church. Mario and I were so proud of you.

 

We lit candles in the lady chapel afterwards to remember our beloved Wendy.

Compass Theatre Christmas Concert

Our lovely grade 2 ballet students performed at the Compass Christmas Concert in November at the Compass Theatre, Ickenham. They were fantastic and it was a great fund raising event for Ickenham Hall. Well done girls. 

Tapathon 2018

On Sunday 18th November, we attempted the world record for the largest tap dance in multiple venues. We didn't break the record this time, but we did help to raise over £36,000 for Children in Need. We are very excited to try again next year when it will be the 10th year! 

Dance Show 2018

On Sunday 25th March 2018 we held our school dance show at Hatch End High School. It was a tribute to our beloved Principal and founder Wendy Gandolfi, who we lost at the end of last year. She would have been so proud of you all!

Tapathon 2017

TAPATHON 2017 this year involved 7,518 tappers!!! What an incredible achievement for us all — every year we are improving on the previous year's numbers. We fell short of the record by just 78 people.

 

Each year, thousands of tap dancers come together all over the UK, each one determined to smash the record. It's all in support of a great cause (BBC Children in Need) and this year the event raised in excess of £38,600. Harrow Theatre Dance and Pinner Theatre Dance raised an additional £80 through our cake sale.
