Excited we can finally announce our Upper School Show for Classes 5+ get the dates in your diaries! We will also be having a Dress Rehearsal after school on Thursday 23rd June which you will all need to attend. All the times and details will be with you shortly.

Due to the new venue and the challenges we have within the space we have decided to place Class 4 in the Lower School Show this time until we have the logistics worked out with the older students. Their performances are on Sunday 12th June at Marsden Mechanics Hall. Again all details of times etc will follow.

Now let's get the choreography finished!!

Date for your diary 🐰🐣

Love this, our dance family is so much more than just learning to dance.
17/03/2022

Love this, our dance family is so much more than just learning to dance.

FROM A DANCE PARENT:

One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money and spend so much time running around for your daughter to dance ?" Well I have a confession to make: I don't pay for my daughter's dance lessons. Or her pointe, Jazz & tap shoes. Or her hundreds of costumes.

So, if I am not paying for dance , what am I paying for?

- I pay for those moments when my girl becomes so tired she feels like quitting but doesn't..

- I pay for the opportunity that my girl can have and will have to make life-long friendships.

- I pay for the chance that she may have amazing instructors that will teach her that dance is not just about movement but about life.

- I pay for my child to learn to be disciplined.

- I pay for my girl to learn to take care of her body.

- I pay for my daughter to learn to work with others and to be a proud , supportive, kind and respectful team member.

- I pay for my child to learn to deal with disappointment, when she doesn't get that score she hoped for , or fell during a move she has practiced a thousand times, but still gets up and is determined to do her BEST next time...

- I pay for my girl to learn to make and accomplish goals.

- I pay for my daughter to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight.

- I pay so that my daughter can be in the studio instead of in front of a screen...

I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for dance; I pay for the opportunities that dance provides my child to develop attributes that will serve her well throughout her life and give her the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen for many, many years, I think it is a great investment!

At today's Disney Workshop. Everyone worked so hard as we danced & sang to Peter Pan, Encanto, Frozen, Mary Poppins, Sleeping Beauty & The Lion King. Our Princes & Princesses decorated their own crowns and learnt how to dance at the royal ball. They all earned a certificate & took home some Disney colouring activities & pictures to design their own costumes this afternoon. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. Thank you for all coming along ☺️

Any students interested from Class 4 upwards please get in touch.

A good few years ago we successfully ran the Private Lesson Scholarship Scheme and have decided to bring it back. Each month a student will be chosen to receive 4 one-to-one coaching sessions sponsored by the Bernadette Heys School of Theatre Dance Scholarship Trust.

The trust was set up in 2009 and is used to sponsor our students for classes and workshops to go alongside their dance training. In the past it has sponsored guest teachers coming in to the school and paid for students to take part in summer schools and workshops etc outside the school too.

The past few years we haven't really done much within the trust, apart from occasional Zoom guest teacher, but we want to increase out fund raising and give more back to our students in 2022.

All students are eligible to be nominated by the teachers, for hard work and dedication.

We are also looking at booking some guest workshops soon too so watch this space...

Hello, Happy New Year to all at Miss Bernie's! Just wondering what the finalised date is for the 2019 Junior Show please? Many thanks ☺️

Can you help us promote this opportunity to your students? We are currently looking to cast young people aged 9-17 in our Christmas Pantomime Aladdin. If you can share we'd be very appreciative! Deadline is 2 July. Thanks!
Reports that Chain Road (Meltham to Marsden) is currently closed - apologies if we are late tonight.
Hi. I have sent you a private message Happy New Year to all at your dance school.

THANKYOU to all the teachers and helpers for yet another amazing show. Beth has had an amazing weekend being part of it and we've loved watching all the girls and boys doing their dances in their super costumes. X
Really must congratulate everyone involved with the show this weekend - another wonderful showcase for this lovely dance school! The staff have clearly worked so very hard, and all the performances from the children were fabulous. Thank you so much Miss Bernie & team! πŸ˜€β€οΈ xx
