Annual Class Showcase - Saturday 14th December 2019

Each year we arrange an Annual Class Showcase in December. This is a very informal event, held at the normal dancing venue. Unlike the show, it is an opportunity for you to see the exam work your children have been working on. This work is much more technical and usually doesn’t get seen by parents which is why we began to hold these small showcases for a chance for you to see some of the unseen exam work. These performances will be NO longer than an hour.
Students should arrive 15 minutes before the start time and will be let in first. Parents, friends and family will then be let in on a first come first serve basis at £2 per adult and £1 per child. Each child needs to be signed in and out so please be patient with us when we do this. Children should wear their normal dance clothes and come in only with their dance shoes which should be labelled. Christmas accessories are welcome!
We have worked very hard arranging these and have aimed to give you plenty of notice as switching times will not, in most cases, be possible. If you are unable to attend, please let us know ASAP at info@highamsschoolofdancing.com
This will be the last session of dancing for 2019 and we return back to dance on Saturday 4th January 2020!
