We’re closed next week! There will be no lessons on 18th-24th February due to half term.
Rehearsal Times Reminder – please remember that the main Dress Rehearsal for ‘COME ALIVE’ is Sunday 25th February at Heanor Gate Science College. Please arrive for 9:30am promptly to be signed in and prepared for a 10:00am start, for full information please click here to see the events page.
- Please remember, bring nothing that can stain! Please no felt tip pens, Ribena, or anything that could accidentally stain costumes.
- Shoes and Tights, if you’re not sure whether you have the correct shoes or tights for your routines please contact us or ask a member of your troupe! Shimmer tights, Ballet tights, and Satin Ballet Shoes are available on www.jld.mydancestore.co.uk.
JL Dance Costume Bags (with name printed on) are available for £12.50 and can be ordered from reception, or ask Martin in the Facebook group.
No Classes on Show days – for those of you who’re new to JL this year, we need to make you aware that there will be no classes on Friday 10th Match, Saturday 11th March, or Saturday 17th March due to all staff and the majority of the students being in the annual showcase. These days will automatically be deduced from next term’s invoices.
Show Classes run until Friday 16th March – there will be no Show Class Friday 23rd March, these will be deduced from invoices. A workshop or block of private lessons may be planned instead.
Show T-Shirts (£10) – If you’ve not already given us your size and told us what name you’d like on the back of your t-shirt please get in touch as soon as possible!
Non-Facebook users – at this time of year when there is a lot communication going back and forth regularly, it highlights that not all parents are on Facebook. If you are a non-Facebook user please send me a quick email just saying ‘Hi I’m not on Facebook!” – as I’d like to make a note for future to make sure that you guys don’t miss out on any of the updates that, while important, don’t justify the writing of a school-wide newsletter.

Planning for the Summer Holidays – We’re looking to Summer already! There are some forms on reception that we’d like students and parents to complete to tell us what type of activities student’s would like during the Summer Holidays, as well as any preference on dates and times. These A5 forms are on reception, please complete one when you can and return it to Rob. When arranging any events during the Summer Holidays we will refer to these forms when deciding ideal dates.

All payments for next term are due by Saturday 3rd March. Please ensure that all bank transfers contain either the student’s name or the invoice reference number, and all cash payments must be in a named envelope. Late payments will incur a £10 late fee.
‘COME ALIVE’ posters! There are some posters advertising our next show that have been printed at the studio; if anyone is able to take some to be put up in shop windows or at schools please help yourself to a poster at reception!
Show Tickets still available! There are still seats available at all five of the ‘COME ALIVE’ performances, but they are disappearing steadily, if you’ve not got your tickets already please visit reception as soon as possible!
