Lisa Jane School Of Dance - Notices
Can't wait to get back to normal times in the dance studios! I hope you have had a great summer and recovered from our fabulous show! Thank you so much for all your generous comments.
It's a busy term - we've got ballet, modern and tap exams all before Christmas - fingers crossed with a real examiner and not filmed. We will be hoping to start all the extra classes as soon as we return to classes. You will be notified if your child is to be considered for an exam. Remember we never enter children until we feel they can reach their potential at that grade.
Please check the timetable as class times have changed. Hopefully, we no longer need to have a gap in between classes. We are however, encouraging parents to drop and pick up from the car park at Old Basing and in the areas around the hall at Lychpit. It worked well for the last year.
Fees have remained the same for this term. Fingers crossed hall hire doesn't increase too much in January!
In the summer term we will be holding our Choreography Competition, so get your thinking caps on for any music or ideas that might come to you.
Once again, thank you for you continued support. I hope your children continue to enjoy their dancing. I am always available to talk to about your childrens progress - email is the best way to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome back to our new dance year. I can't wait to get 'back to normal' in the dance studio. We are still going to keep a few measures in place. Hand sanitiser will be available and parents will be asked to drop off at the door. Thank you all so much for your support.
DVD’s and USB sticks and photos are all still available. Your need to contact Big Yellow Feet for the DVD and USB sticks and Carmel Jane for photos
RAD AND ISTD EXAMS 2021
We are excited to see you all back at dancing, and hopefully working towards an exam in the forthcoming dance year. We will contact you by email to let you know what we are thinking of doing in your child’s dance class. In some dance classes we are going to wait and see how much of the grade work they have remembered.
If you fancy trying a new discipline, please email me for a trial lesson. We are starting a brand new Junior Commercial and Contemporary class this will replace the current Junior Street dance. Monday afternoons 5.45-6.30pm at Old Basing Village Hall – age 8 upwards
On Friday evenings from 7.15pm-8.15pm we will be offering a brand-new Free Ballet and Pointe Class for everyone in Intermediate and above. This class will work on technique and strength and free enchainements, as well as regular pointe work.
On Saturday Inter Foundation Ballet will increase by 15minutes to ensure pointe work is practiced every week. Pointe work will no longer feature in your graded classes.
THINGS WE LIKED ABOUT COVID AND ARE KEEPING!
Entering and exiting classes has been so much easier. We would like to keep the present arrangement; it works so well. We are able to start the classes as soon as the children enter the studio. Everyone enters together which is so helpful. We will change the times, as we will no longer have to clean everywhere once the children have left (I hope), so we will allow about 5minutes in between.
