Memorial Awards Dance Day
01 October 2017

Twelve students took part in the Memorial Awards Day of Dance
 in Stockton today where they participated in a ballet class and learnt a short dance. 
Some tricky choreography with challenging steps, all students worked extremely hard
and performed beautifully in front of parents and teachers.

Nash1

The School of Theatre Dance ran a one-week Summer School for children at newly-renovated community venue 'the NASH' in Hawes. The historic building behind St. Margaret's Church was filled with music and movement as the children danced a diverse range of themes including seaside, circus, moon landing, teddy bears' picnic and fantasy world. The children were also taught ballet and coordination skills. The sessions were fully-booked, with twenty-five children between the ages of three and nine taking part.

Well done everyone who took part and helped with our two matinee performances to sell-out audiences in December.  We raised 1600 which has been divided between The Old School House, Leyburn and Reeth and Gunnerside Schools.  A smaller donation has also been made to Reeth Memorial Hall.  These are the venues that support our School of Theatre Dance classes throughout the year.

EASTER DANCE WEEK AND
GERMAN EXCHANGE STUDENTS 2012




The third Annual Easter Dance Week with German Exchange took place in the week beginning 7th April 2012. Thirteen German students from Frankfurt am Main (including two boys) took part in the exchange enjoying classes in Drama, African Dance, Lindy Hop, Bollywood, Contemporary, Irish and Salsa. The classes were held in Reeth Memorial Hall, Low Row Institute and Muker Village Hall. As well as the classes, the students also enjoyed an afternoon swimming in Catterick, a visit to Hazel Brow Farm, a shopping trip to the Metro Centre and a farewell tea at the Dales Bike Centre in Fremington. In 2010 eleven German students from Janet Seymour's former school in Frankfurt stayed with current students from the School of Theatre Dance in Swaledale. Last year ten students from the School of Theatre Dance visited Frankfurt.
