What’s on at a glance and feedback

As well as our regular dance classes each week (see bottom of home page) this is what’s coming up over the next few months and feedback to all our dancers:

  • Thank you to everyone who supported New Life Dance at our Summer Dances, workshops, ISTD medal classes and regular classes. ISTD medal classes will be running most Saturdays starting at 1.30pm or 2pm (speak to Martin or Elaine for details). Photos are on Facebook. A big thank you to Kate and Ronnie for their amazing live singing spot and all helpers including Cathy, Cliff, Jim, John and more. Great to see all the people who regularly come to classes, workshops and events. More photos of workshops and classes to follow.

  • Also thank you to all the dancers who have registered to take their Medallist Exams at the London Centre (Urdang Studios, Finsbury Town Hall, Rosebury Avenue Clerkenwell EC1R 4RP – provisionally starting at 1.59pm) on 18th November 2018. Almost enough to hold our own exam day! Maybe next time which will be around March 2019:)
