Welcome to our Summer Newsletter.  We are working hard towards our exams on Sunday 6th July.

 Advance notice – Showtime 2015

 We are excited to announce that Showtime 2015 is going to be held at Bedworth Civic Hall on

Tuesday 26th May and Wednesday 27th May 2015.

Please note that this is during half term. Tuesday will be during the day and evening for rehearsal and performance, and Wednesday will be an evening performance.

 Mardi Gras

We will begin choreography for Mardi Gras from September 2014. If you have returned your slip with your contact details on, you have a place. Donna will be sending a copy of her choreography to audition to Mardi Gras in August. Assuming this will be a success, rehearsals will begin in September and deposits will be asked for soon after. Last time the deposits were £50 per person for all in your party (including non performers).

 We would like to reiterate the attendance rules regarding Mardi Gras. From September 13th 2014 up to and including August 1st 2015 dancers will only be able to miss a total of 3 weeks Mardi Gras rehearsals.

All Mardi Gras dances will be performed in our show in May. The compulsory dress rehearsals will be May 16th and 23rd. All dancers must attend on these dates.

Please speak to Donna or Debbie ASAP if you have any concerns with the above.

 Hall Closure

There will be no lessons on Friday 11th and Thursday 17th July. The bills for the term have been adjusted accordingly.

A polite reminder

Fee invoices are given out on the last lesson of term, these fees are due for payment on the first lesson of the new term. Payment can be made via cheque, cash or BACS. If you require the bank details, please contact Donna. If you pay via BACS, please text Donna on the date the transfer is made. Thank you.

Thank you for your continued support, as always
