ZOOM CLASSES WITH JOEL
I hope you are all staying safe and well.
The new term is about to start (April 20th) and obviously it is not under normal circumstances, sadly. BUT I am happy to be able to offer an almost full online live class timetable.
I have found these classes are beneficial and a great way of improving. I hope they will be fun and keep you dancing in this strange time we are all faced with.
Please know that these classes are not compulsory and they do not affect your place in the school if you can not attend. Also this timetable is only while we are on lock down. See the timetable page for all class info.
Please email me if you have any questions on how to sign up and class fees etc
For this to work well you will need to download ZOOM and have enough space for your entire body to be seen on the camera. You will also need something to hold as a ballet barre. Also coming dressed for ballet with your hair done helps you feel like you are in an actual class!
I will be in touch with information on Joe’s modern classes asap.
Lets hope we will be back at Grange Road very soon!
Best wishes Joel
UPDATE 13TH APRIL

Miss you all lots but remember this is not forever!! Stay in and stay safe. Donna xxx
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 19TH MARCH
Due to schools closing we have been advised to also close our dance classes. The final class will be the grade 4 class 5-15 on Friday and the school will then close from 6-15. This is a very sad situation but we have no choice but to follow government guidelines. We hope to restart on April 20th. Best wishes to you all. Gillian xx
