We're just coming up to halfway through the term and everyone has settled back into the studio swimmingly. Show preparations are going smoothly and it is looking highly likely that we'll be putting on two final performances in July, rather than just one.
We've started testing sample costumes and the children are really starting to get into character. We're also still welcoming new students to our community, as it's never too late to start performing arts!
Show rehearsals are now well underway and we're pleased to have such a committed cast aged just 4-14 years. Some of the routines are already finished, but lots of polishing still to do. The first sample costumes and our 'Narnia' wardrobe have arrived too. Busy, busy, busy, but looking very exciting so far!
We're all settled back into the timetable after an Easter break and this term is "showtime." Instructors are producing our first ever theatrical show involving students of all ages and abilities.
As we work towards the final performance, our studio principal is keeping a video blog to capture what's happening behind the scenes with only 10 weeks of rehearsals!
Time for the Easter break and we finished on a high with a smooth exam session and fun outing to Sutton Coldfield shopping centre with our Dance Performance Team.
We're looking forward to getting back into the studio in a couple of weeks to start producing our first theatre show! And we'll also be awarding those all important exam results at our annual presentation.
For now we'll enjoy a little break, well sort of...we're busily prepping show material and promoting ready for next terms registration. It's going to be an exciting term!
We've really enjoyed helping students prepare for their first competitions. Focussing on personal development, we believe that working positively towards a stage performance can help boost students confidence. And we're looking forward to seeing these kids grow as they learn more about performing!
Our positive approach to coaching is developing a fantastic culture at the studio. Students are growing in confidence while learning new skills and their parents are giving great feedback. A handful of classes are almost at full capacity, so we've designed some vibrant campaigns to also spread the word about our newer subjects.
