Each year the entries increase and the standard gets better and better.In the heats the children have to learn a class very quickly and perform it to a high standard. The judges then choose some of these candidates to perform again in the finals.

LITA’S ISTD BALLET AWARDS EXPERIENCE

This year we were very proud of Lita who represented the June Glennie School of Dance at the ISTD Ballet Awards.which were held at the Hawth Theatre Crawley, West Sussex on the 2nd and 3rd March 2013

LITA’S EXPERIENCE

: We’d just finished our warm up and now this was it! There was a lot of us I remember thinking to myself, about 20 or so in each group and three groups for the Grade 4 section. I walked onto the stage and stood with my feet in fifth breathing deeply to try to control my nerves. The curtains rose up and I was on stage… I love that feeling!

I loved it. So much! We all practiced the exercises and enchainments set by the teacher then did them row by row, three of us at a time...

A Little Note From Victoria

image(2)

This picture is of me at my first festival in February 2013 at Sudbury, I was very nervous however I really enjoyed it. I have had many other awesome dancing experiences as well they include performing in the pantomime in Lowestoft 2011and doing it again in 2012. This pantomime was called Mother Goose in Gorleston. At the beginning of April I and many others are doing the strictly come dancing tour, I’m sure it will be full of fun.
I hope to have many more amazing dance experiences to come.
Overall, I really enjoy dancing because it’s fun and I get to see my friends, plus the teachers are really encouraging.

A Little Note From Ellie

My name is Ellie and I’m 6 years old and I go to June Glennie School of Dance, I have been going there since I was 3 years old. I am being taught ballet, tap and modern, and I enjoy them all. We have to take exams to help us get better so we can learn harder steps and get better at dancing. I am now grade 1 in all three classes and my teachers think that I am doing really well. We have to wear a purple catsuit for tap and modern and we have to wear a black leotard with a skirt on for ballet. I have made lots of new friends and we help each other if we get stuck with difficult steps. We are now practicing for a show this year to show off what we have learnt and I am really looking forward to performing on the big stage again as this will be my second show I’ve done...
