As this term draws to an end, it's almost our show weekend and what an exciting finish to this term it will be! As students make their final preparations to perform on stage, we're already talking about summer holiday clubs...It's all go at the Amplify studio!
We're really looking forward to finishing this term with sparkle, when our students step onto the stage as a studio community for the very first time.
The children seem really excited about the adventure and production is looking very exciting. Just a couple more weeks left to practise, so in the meantime a huge thank you to all staff and parents for your continued support.
We're into the last few weeks of this term and the show is starting to take shape. Pretty much all choreography is now finished, so it's just a case of handing over to the children and linking everything together.
Alongside show production, we're also planning some summer activities just for fun! So watch this space...
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!
