Welcome back everyone! We have been back in the studio for a couple of weeks now... and it feels like we have never been away! Lots and lots going on already, dates to put in the diary in this months newsletter:
Here at Bojangles, we are excited to announce that our pre-school classes are having a bit of a rebranding make over. But don't worry, they will still be taught by the same fabulous and qualified Bojangles teachers!
Baby & Nursery Ballet will now be known as 'Petite Feet' with the new addition of 'Pop Tots', an introduction to street, Jazz & hip hop for little ones.
A special discounted rate is available to students who take more than one preschool class, so if you're already signed up for ballet, why not take advantage of both classes?

2:30-3:00 Petite Feet Ballet (4yrs+)
2:30-3:00 *NEW!* Petite Feet Ballet

Fabulous Dancing, well done!
Some of our students were asked to perform at Lichfield Gotta Dance at the Garrick theatre this week. Our students performed some old favourite routines from our own last show, Jellicle Ball from Cats The Musical & My Boy Lollipop, a tap dance.
Our pupils dance wonderfully (or course!) and really smiled their socks off! It was a great to get back out and perform again. Thank you to all involved; students, parents & teachers.

Well done to all our pupils who took part and competed in the Leicester Festival this week. You all danced wonderfully! We were so proud, and especially since a lot of you had moved up an age category this time making it even more difficult!
