THANKS FROM MISS MELANIE

Dear Parents and Students! 

I just wanted to write to you all with my sincerest thanks for all of the gifts, cards, flowers and the extremely generous collection that you've all kindly given me. My house looks somewhat like a florist! 
I read all of the cards when I got home after my last Saturday and to say that there were a few tears would be an understatement!!! Floods more like! The messages and good wishes were lovely and very heartfelt! 
I will certainly miss you all, but do not fear, I'll be around! To visit and watch the show for definite and most likely after, I don't want to miss anything!! 
I will let everybody know ASAP once the bump arrives! Exciting times! 
Good luck to all students for the remaining show rehearsals and the show itself, I know that you'll all be wonderful and that parents will, as always, be a tremendous help backstage. Can't wait to see it. 
Lots of love and thanks, 
Miss Mel and Bump!

SHOW CLOTHING
As we have done in the past years, we will be ordering some clothing as a momento of the shows this year, but also the items can be worn in class.

We have zip up hooded tops this year in the school colours of black & red.  We will also be doing show T shirts in two different colours. The entire cast names will be printed on the reverse of the clothes.

Please download the examples of the clothes/colours.

Any orders need to be made by MAY HALF TERM so that we can get the items made and delivered before the show.  Anyone ordering after this date may not receive the items before the show and WILL be subject to an additional £10 charge as the printing plates have to be remade.

These are usually very popular with the children and I hope that you like the choices this year.

Best wishes Susan Handy

Please note that all trial classes must be booked in advance by emailing the office or calling 07515 270432.

If your child decides that this is not for her/him, there is no charge or obligation.

For your trial class, please dress your child comfortably. Girls, if you don’t have a leotard please wear leggings or a skirt and T-shirt. Boys, a pair of shorts and T-shirt is appropriate. If ballet shoes are not available the trial class should be danced in bare feet.

If your child needs your presence in the classroom during the first class, this is fine. Once she/he is settled in class, however, we do prefer that you leave them to it, except for music & movement classes where you are able to watch each week. 

If you would like to continue with classes then you may join for the remainder of the term and will be charged on a pro rata basis. You will need to complete the Booking Form (downloadable) and send it to Susan Handy School of Dance, 20 Eton Road, Datchet, Berkshire SL4 9AY, together with the Registration Fee (£20), once received an invoice will be sent to you for the terms fees.

Once you have joined, please be on time for each class! Being late disturbs the children already in class and often makes the latecomers uncomfortable.  If you are late, please ensure that your child is completely ready before quietly entering the room. Parents are asked not to interrupt the class once it has started.

Please be advised that the taking of photographs in the classroom is strictly prohibited except on our special “Watching Days” at the end of each term.
