Congratulations to the children who took part in the Hounslow Dance Festival 2019. We haven’t entered a Festival for more than 25 years. Cara took “Annie” from our recent show and worked very hard alongside the children who also gave their all.
Cara said of their performance: “The other groups were very mature in look and their dances. Ours looked teeny, but I think ours had the most fun”
Comment from a parent “The girls and Daniel did so well. They danced brilliantly! Please pass on thanks to Cara for a job well done – she got them dancing so well!”
Babel Company Class are travelling to Disneyland Paris to perform!
They have worked so hard and passed the audition. We travel on 8th, perform on the 9th and home on the 10th April 2020. Families are travelling together for this exciting adventure. We are performing Bond and Come Alive from our show this year and taking 3 new pieces as well!
I am so proud of all the children and students who were totally committed to the audition process and to Charis and Sharon for their complete dedication to achieve our goal. We have a lot of work to do, but what an adventure we are embarking on!
The last week in July saw 42 children and students from as far away as Sydney Australia have a great week. The theme was The Greatest Showman. Routines and songs were learnt. A huge banner made in art and craft. A day trip to Covent Garden in London. On the last day, parents and friends came and watched the fruits of the week’s labour.
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.
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 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.
Congratulations to all students who performed today at Hayes and Harlington Community Association Open Day. A lovely warm afternoon, lots of fun, plenty of food choices, displays to watch, singers to listen to. A real community day, thank you to everyone who helped, took part and enjoyed themselves!
The girls met at Kings House Sports Ground in Chiswick on Sunday 19.6.16 along with over 600 other people to rehearse for The Big Dance that will be performed on 2.7.16 in Trafalgar Square. It was a great day, very hot in the morning and breezy in the afternoon. The rehearsal was led by Jen and Jose and watched by choreographer Akram Khan. Akram Khan spoke very emotionally about losing 2 friends in the Orlando attack and wanted to show the world through the Big Dance, that the human spirit could not be quashed. This was received with cheers and loud applause. It was very inspiring. All the performers came together and worked very hard. All ages and abilities from 14 – 70+ years. There was a disabled group, professional dancers and everything in between.
We are now looking forward to going to Trafalgar Square for a rehearsal on 1.7.16 and then the performances on 2.7.16.
