Surrey Dance School Awards

Surrey Dance School Awards

Our Surrey Dance School Awards took place in the theatre at Hazelwood School on Sunday 25th November.

All ballet and Funky Feet modern dance pupils performed to a packed auditorium filled with family, friends and our adjudicator, Alison Dos Santos.

Events like these are a great opportunity for the dancers to perform on a stage in front of an audience, which is an essential part of learning and confidence building.

I am very proud of all my pupils who took part in the Awards performance….Well done to all the pupils who won an award or received a medal. It was a lovely afternoon of dancing and a great way to end the year and a very busy term!

Many thanks to all the help and support of my amazing team, your continuing support allows us to stage events, shows and demonstrations.

Surrey Dance School Awards

In May 2016, I launched our 1st annual event, The Surrey Dance School Awards!

The Awards were in the format of presentation classes, spread over 2 days.

Our guest adjudicator, Gaynor Harris, spent 2 afternoons observing and enjoying the children’s dance class demonstrations.  I was very proud of all of my dance pupils who took part and especially our trophy and medal winners.

The Funky Feet Awards were given to: Ayana Patel, Alice Bennett, Alice Wood and Connie McMillan.

The Ballet Award winners were: Evelyn Callaghan, Isabelle Cheshire, Florence Butler-Merritt, Poppy Scott-Taggart, Sadie Chelba and Connie McMillan.

I really feel these events are beneficial for the dancers to showcase their syllabus work and to experience performing in front of adjudicators and audiences.
