October half term saw some of our pupils competing at Pershore Dance Festival in Worcestershire. The girls all worked extremely hard, and for Erin & Layla, it was their first time!
All our students attained marks over 80 which is such an amazing achievement... well done!
Layla came home with a silver medal for her ballet solo and we are all very proud of her!
Congratulations to Aimee, Evie, Charlotte, Erin & Layla!
With the holidays looming, now is the time to get booked on to our summer workshops and fun days! There is something for every level, with the summer holidays culminating in a summer party day with fun dance workshops and a BOUNCY CASTLE!
Junior fun workshop days are running throughout the holidays (please see attached poster for dates and timings). They are suitable for all children, (non Bojangles students included!) from Reception - approx Year 3 school class age. They will include themed dance workshops, fun, games, crafts and more! Early morning drop offs are also available upon request.
Senior summer school is also on again, Monday 30th July - Thursday 2nd August. We have guest professionals and also our own highly qualified staff teaching throughout the camp, with ballet, jazz, repertoire, musical theatre, drama, singing, theatre crafts, hair and make up along with our ever popular pointe shoe decorating course! This course is suitable for all Bojangles students who are currently in Grade 1 ballet and above.

Bojangles students compete at the Imperial Ballet Awards in London!
Last weekend some of our Grade 4 & 6 students were lucky enough to perform and compete at the annual ISTD Imperial `Ballet Awards in London. We had a fantastic day and the girls did fantastically well, congratulations to you all on your hard work!
A new school year begins...
Here we are again, at the start of another new school year. It doesn’t feel so long since we performed in our show, yet feels like forever since we had our usual graded classes! Hopefully we aren’t aching too much after week 1.
Some of you have started new secondary schools, maybe your little ones have gone into full time education, or you’re off to Nursery... hopefully the change has happened smoothly and without too many dramas. The first few weeks back are always especially tiring and emotional times. If you miss a class, don’t worry, just let us know if you want to make it up and attend another similar class in its place.
We have lots of new students joining us this term - our Petite Feet Ballet & Pop Tots classes look fit to burst on some days! A warm welcome to you all!
We also sadly said goodbye to a few of our senior students at the end of September. We saw some of you leaving to go to Universities, and some of you pursuing further dance education at prestigious schools. Well done to Mia (Abbots Bromley), Lucy & Jodie (BOA Performing Arts).
We have already had some fantastic workshop classes this term, with Miss Beth taking Musical Theatre classes this term, and Miss Stacey teaching superb Contemporary technique classes. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us all.
Lots and lots to look forward to this term. We have Pershore Festival during half term week, an exam session at the end of term, as well as performances with the Hatherton Canal Trust and the Folk Festival amongst others. We also have more social gatherings in the pipeline too (any requests or suggestions welcome) especially with Christmas fast approaching!!
We are looking forward to another great term ahead! 🕺🏻💫
