Studios Reopening Monday 12th April

We have nothing but praise for how hard all of our dancers have worked on zoom, and the improvement is just incredible!  So well done to you fantastic young people for being so focused and positive!

To those of you who haven't been able to join us on zoom, we hope you are all happy and doing well and are looking forward to returning to face to face classes when the studios can reopen on Monday 12th April.

It is a real testament to our teachers, dancers and their family's commitment to NTDS that the school has survived this latest three month closure of the studios and we are so excited to see you all again in two weeks time.

Please confirm whether your dancer will be returning to their classes as soon as possible.  Thanks ever so, Jane & Daisy

Extremely proud of former student Thomas Varney, who is in his graduate year at Central School of Ballet and will be performing on stages across the nation as a member of the Ballet Central Tour, and also former student Sophie Bond who has recently graduated from The Hammond School and has just received her first professional nine month contract as a dancer/singer on board a cruise ship starting in January.

The School was very excited to be invited to perform at The Nottingham Arts Theatre's 70th Anniversary Gala Concert, with Senior Students performing two pieces during the show.

Next month Senior Students are all looking forward to performing a new contemporary piece entitled 'I Am Dust' choreographed by NTDS Teacher/Choreographer Daisy Moreton at the fabulous Unite The Scene 2018 dance platform.
