Kids Stage Show – Wood Green, Newham Monday ballet classes, Stratford Performing Arts (5-7 years old)

“Never give up on your dreams” like Felicie from movie “Ballerina”.
We are happy to invite all our adorable ballerinas to take part in the upcoming performance.

Participation in the stage performance is a great way to build a child’s confidence and improve their self-esteem along with overcoming shyness. It also gives them an enjoyable and unforgettable experience to display their talent.

Date & TimeSaturday 22nd of June at 3.30pm approximately till 5.30pm.

Address for Rehearsal and Stage Show : Theatre Hall. Chobham Academy, 40 Cheering Ln, East Village, London E20 1BD.

To have a glance behind the scenes at preparation for one of our Stage Shows please watch our short video on YouTube

To attend the performance, tickets are required (note: your don’t need to buy a ticket for the actual participant/student, only for parents and visitors)

Tickets available here. 

Kids under three years old attend for free, but will need to sit on your lap. 
Please note: The tickets you purchase online will be handed out to you on the day of the performance.
This year we have a limited number of tickets available, so if you haven’t purchased yours yet please do it shortly.

Tickets will be available to buy online only until 17th of June.

Here is some information you need to know about the performance.

The performance usually combines:

  • A Ballet Demonstration – with participation of all our students, to show their learning achievements. Kids who prepared for their ballet exams will demonstrate the exercises from the exams, so you will have the opportunity to see their skills.
  • A Short interval. So kids have time to change into their special dance costumes.
  • Show time – This is the actual stage show, where kids will be dressed up in lovely costumes and dance on stage. Unlike most of other dance schools in UK we don’t ask our students to buy stage costumes (which are generally £40-£50 each)  to participate in a show. We offer our children free use of costumes on the day of the performance . The costumes will be handed out to children on the dress rehearsal and must be returned to the school staff straight after the performance. The failure to return the outfits will lead to a replacement cost of £50.00 per costume. After the “Show time” each child will be required to come back and put their costume into a bag allocated to them, so we can confirm that the costume with all its accessories is there.

Uniform.

You can prepare kids with nice makeup, using lipstick, eyeliner, mascara etc., as they are now performing artists!
Uniform: Ballet outfit, Ballet Shoes, Ballet Tights and Pink Hairnet. Ballet uniform should be clean and ironed to present a very nice professional look. 
Their Hair should be properly brushed and tied back in a bun. Use many hair clips and hair gel to make their hairstyle neat and pretty. Please use the pink hairnet. Here is a photo of the correct hairstyle.

Hairstyle

Jewelry must not be worn during the rehearsal and performance!

Please supply your child with a bottle of water during the performance, as it is a very long day. Write the name of your child on a bottle. (No juice or food is allowed, as kids can make spots on costumes and damage them. 

Photography. 

This year we have once again invited a professional photography company, who specializes in Quality Photography of Children, to ensure you can get beautiful photos of your child from the show. Professional portraits will be taken in their costumes during and after the performance. The photos will be then available for purchasing online. Buying photographs is entirely optional. Please note: occasionally we might use photos for our school promotion and marketing purposes.

You are welcome to take photos and short videos of your child dancing on stage during the performance, however please do this from your seat, and be respectful to other parents around you.  Please don’t put photographs on a social media platforms (unless it is a photo of your own child) .

Pushchairs and Buggies .

Unfortunately due to the fire regulations of the Chobham Academy pushchairs and buggies are not allowed to the theatre (you can leave them in a cafe area of the school) . Therefore we advise to bring with you a sling or carrier for your baby.

Parking.

Parking spaces at the academy are limited, however you can also park in Westfield Stratford City Shopping centre, which is approximately 10 min walk.

Please bring your child to the event 30 min before the performance, fully dressed in the clean ballet uniform and with perfect hairstyle!

We are looking forward to see all our students on stage

Lets celebrate this wonderful event together!

Happy Halloween! Half term holidays.

Dear parents,

Happy Halloween ! Just a reminder that there are no classes this week during the half term break, but you can still get them to practice their current exercises if they want to get a treat instead of a trick ;)

Hope you have fun carving pumpkins and parties with the family. To get you into the mood, here is one of our favorite pictures from our 2016 stage show, with two of our students Daria & Antonina  (now they are doing Grade 1 Ballet) from our Kingston branch, dressed up in costume as witches before their dance.

 

 

Welcome Back to Lyric Dance School, Ballet students from class of 2017

Welcome Back to Lyric Dance School

Our new academic year has started this week, and the Lyric Dance School team are excited to welcome back all our existing students, and look forward to meeting our new students.

The photo is of our Grade 1 Ballerinas from the summer stage show of 2017. With some of them commencing dance classes with us five years ago, its so nice to see them growing professionally
