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. 



The summer term is a very busy one; we have lots of exams in ballet tap and modern scheduled for May and July and some wonderful dances being performed at the Hurlingham Show, Datchet Fete, Jane Bardos Charity Performance, Royal Windsor Rose Show and the Wisley Arts Festival.  If you can get along and support any of these events we guarantee you’ll enjoy them.

The auditions for Cecchetti Scholars, Cecchetti Associates and the Elite Group (Eton and Woking)  are also coming up, check out our events page for all the dates of these to make sure you don’t miss anything.



Earlier this month Freya Holt, Jenni Canali, Grace Pearson-Hall, Maia Perkins, Holly Lidgate and Ophelia Almeyda went up to the Guildhall, London for the Lord Mayors Charity Curry Luncheon to support the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers and raise money for the Soldier’s Charity. They had a very good (if tiring) day and got to meet Prince Andrew!    
A spokesman from the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers said  "Thank you for bringing the girls they really do look lovely and their participation adds a great deal to the success of our stall.  The other Livery Companies are very envious of us!!  This was again a very successful venture for the Fruiterers’ Company, where we could be seen actively “Raising funds for charity” and “Supporting the Lord Mayor and the City of London” which are two of our main objectives."



Our next workshop with guest teacher LEAH O CONNER is in Commercial Dance and will be on Sunday 21st May. We also are having a Performance Skills Workshop on Sunday 18th June.

If your son / daughter is interested in either of these and you would like more details or to book a space on the workshop contact the office on 07515 270432.







This Summer Miss Chantelle and Miss Helen will be running four days of different themed workshops which will include street,contemporary and musicals, see poster below.

Many of you ask the difference between the Grade and Standard exams and classes.  We have therefore included this information in the available downloads for your perusal below and on the Contact Us page.
