Essex Branch Launch Party

Our Essex Branch Launch Party was a resounding success. Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a special day. We had some great workshops delivered by our Essex and Ipswich Branch teachers. The Mayor of Southend very kindly opened the School for us and he and the Mayoress were treated to some wonderful showcases by our budding stars of the future. They stayed afterwards to tell us how very impressed they were by all of your fantastic dancing!

Strictly Dance Mum and exams

This morning was a flurry of activity in my house. It is the day of the NATD medal tests but in typical dance mum fashion, that is not the only thing we have to prepare for. My youngest (10) Little Dancer LD has a dress rehearsal for a dance show that she is doing for her school dance troupe, her last show as she has now moved to a new school. Of course, the times overlap! So at 9am this morning I am sorting her costumes for that, getting her stage makeup on and braiding her hair before my husband, the dedicated dance dad that he is, drops her at the first venue. Now I am getting dresses, pins, shoes, socks etc ready to take with me and my eldest to the medal test later. My husband will then
