Jasmine Dotiwala, one of Sara’s very first students, a Producer at MTV, has her own Radio show and travels the world to interview the stars of music and screen has declared Sara Ridley (nee Halder) her favourite teacher!
Our current GCSE Girls enjoyed a workshop, learning to move and dance with a wheelchair. It was given by Michael from Para Dance UK. It was great fun and truly inspirational.
Sharon will be joining our Saturday team in September (2017). She already teachers on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. A student of Babel as a child, she went on to earn a degree at The Royal Academy of Dance in Ballet Education. She will be a welcome addition to our passionate and skilled teaching staff on a Saturday.
24 children and students travelled to Theatre Royal, Windsor to perform with Wandershow Productions in “Making Memories” and that is exactly what they did!
A great day out. They performed Celebration and Silencio with great passion and enthusiasm. Sara, with Vicky, Maria and Neha looked after the children, their only misgiving was the 4 flights of stairs to and from the stage! Their legs are not as young as they were, particularly Sara’s!
Melissa Dobson and Tavneet Matharu both celebrated their birthdays whilst at the theatre. Birthdays they will never forget. Thank you to Jasmine Kochhar who very kindly brought a chocolate cake along, which everyone enjoyed.
Sara described this as a warm-up to our main event “Dance in Time” to be performed on the 19th March 2017.
Congratulations Babel girls, you did yourselves and the school proud
Congratulations to Andrea Jennings and Lily Saunders on passing their GCSE Dance, both with B grade. We are very proud of you ladies. Thanks to Sam Laing and Sharon Payne for all their help and support for the girls.
I can’t believe this term is almost over. We have had a very good year, this last term particularly busy, with Bobby Dazzler’s at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London, Big Dance in Trafalgar Square and over 250 exam entries. We are ready for a rest. The last classes will be fun and exciting, offering opportunities for the children to try something new.
When we return in September, we will be straight into rehearsing for “Dance in Time”.
Myself and all the staff wish you all a wonderful summer break and look forward to seeing you all, raring to go in September.
