We are looking forward to welcoming our dancers, both returning students and new students, to the studio starting Monday September the 8th for the 2014-5 season. The year is shaping up to be an exciting one, with RAD exams early Dec, ISTD exams Feb, Spring Performance opportunities for our performance groups, and finally our annual production, this year entitled “The Little Mermaid” in May!
Attention Steps Ahead Dance Students age 10 – 17!

In our aim to respect the environment, we are heading toward a paperless production. This year there will be few printed programmes available at the theatre. However, if you wish to save this document for your personal memories, or pint your own at home, the choice is yours. The Bunch will have free wifi all weekend.

The art of stage make up is to allow the features of the face to be seen and not washed out by the lights – but at the same time, to look as tho the dancers is not wearing make-up!
