What we did in 2019
Last year was another busy year for the dance school.
We attended several competitions and returned with lots of trophies and medals. Some of these can be seen in the 4 Stars Dance Studio. Our own freestyle competition held at Melksham Assembly Halls was a huge success and a really enjoyable day.
Students were entered for Theatre and Freestyle Examinations throughout the year and once again we are proud to announce that we had 100% pass rate which goes to show that the students and teachers are all working really hard to get things right in amongst the fun times.
Some of our teachers were invited to dance at a Charity Event organised by Hayley Fletcher and they helped to raise money for Dorothy House Hospice.
Great fun was had by all at the Calne Carnival this year. Several students of all ages joined the teachers to dance through Calne and once again we had the support of Rob Williams and his wonderful music system.
Junior Summer School was a real success with lots of fabulous dancing and craft activities. The students who attended breakfast and after school club enjoyed outings, nail painting, craft and chill out time. Staff and children thoroughly enjoyed the whole week.
Money was raised to help to improve the studios by students, parents and staff taking part in a sponsored walk along the cycle track, Calne to Chippenham. It was tough but they completed the walk and raised much needed funds. Coffee mornings and the medal holder competition also helped towards fundraising. The studios and waiting areas were given a lick of paint to brighten the place up and more mirrors were purchased and fitted.
We finished the year with the amazing show at the Neeld Hall in Chippenham. The students who took part had the best of times back stage as well as performing and we have heard from several spectators that they thought everyone was fabulous. It was a perfect ending to a fabulous year.
