Welcome to the website for the Susan Handy School of Dance

This is the place to find out what's going on and coming up.

Well what a term! Our summer term was a very busy one; we have had lots of exam sessions with fantastic results and a 100% pass rate!  

We have performed some wonderful dances at various events including the Hurlingham Show, Datchet Fete, the Royal Windsor Rose Show and Wisley Arts Festival if you managed to get along to any of them we hope you enjoyed them.  


We also had the priviledge of supporting the Jane Bardos Charity Performance which helped raise over £5000.00 for Reuben's fund which is an amazing amount.     



Term has now finished and we will return on Saturday 16th September.

From September we have a new intake for GCSE Dance across the school so make sure you enrol for that, and coming to Woking a brand new Body Conditioning class (for those in Grade 3 or above).  If you are interested in either of these please get in touch with the office to find out more and put your name down. 

We hope you all have a wonderful summer break and look forward to the start of the new term on Saturday 16th September.


We would like to congratulate some of our students who have been awarded scholarships for Cecchetti Associates based on their performance in the classes this year.
Elsa Eastmond whose scholarship was given by London Children's Ballet, Phoebe Medcalf given by Chelsea Ballet School and Harry Weston given by Anthea Sanders School.

Congratulations to Marnie Cox-Harrison, Amelia Marriott, Ophelia Almeyda, Ellen Pickering and Maia Perkins who have all been awarded Cecchetti Classical Ballet Scholarships.
And the following have been accepted into Cecchetti Associates : Iris Gazet, Clementine Harris, Tabitha Shaefer, Emily Coomber, Tilly Medcalf, Georgia Biddle, Holly Tweddle, Jessica Schofield, Kitty Cox Harrison, Phoebe Medcalf, Constance Marriott, Margot Hoogers, Lavinia Bernstorf, Marnie Cox-Harrison, Grace Pearson-Hall, Megan Windsor, Stephanie Hockin, Emma Bullen, Harry Weston.
