Nothing is More Revealing Than
The Dancers School is the oldest established dance school in Gorleston. The school is run by Jayne King, a fully qualified teacher with the I.S.T.D., holding Fellowship status with the society. The school mainly concentrates on classes for children in ballet, tap, modern theatre & jazz dance, with a small selection of adult classes available. There are also singing & acting classes for children at the school.
Hope everyone is ok and keeping well and happy!
I am still looking at using Zoom for some online classes, but waiting for a new router to arrive which will hopefully improve the quality, as there have been a few issues with the trials I’ve had with it so far.
I am also putting some pre-recorded classes online on The Dancers School website at specific times – these need to be started within 30 minutes of the start time or you will not be able to watch all the video.
If you are interested in watching/doing these classes, please text me to receive the password. PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THIS ON SOCIAL MEDIA - IT IS JUST FOR PUPILS OF THE DANCERS SCHOOL, & I NEED TO KNOW WHO IS USING THESE VIDEOS. The sound quality on these is not brilliant (if you can put it through external speakers, it will be a lot clearer) but I have ordered some more equipment which should improve this, hopefully week beginning March 30th (depending on post).
If you have paid for the half term, then these classes are clearly free until the new term, but if you pay weekly, please keep note of how many & which classes you do, and then we will sort out payment somewhere along the line.
Hope this is a bit of a help. I am working on more videos today, and will hopefully have a timetable up here ready for next week.
Coronavirus update - see below
In line with the latest government advice to stop the spread of coronavirus, I have made the difficult decision to close The Dancers School at the end of classes on Saturday March 21st until further notice, in order to protect the wellbeing of all pupils and their families.
Exams for the school were scheduled for two days in May (Tap - Primary, Grades 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6), June (Ballet – Primary, Grades 3, 4, 6) and July (Modern – Bronze Jazz, Grades 1, 2, 5, Intermediate).
In light of the current situation, the ISTD have cancelled all exams until mid-June, and I am clearly unsure how much of a delay this will create in getting May dates rescheduled, although I am re-applying for July dates.
I will update you as to when classes can start again as soon as I have that information, and will let you know any confirmed exam dates when I receive them.
In the meantime, let’s hope we all stay fit and healthy, and can get back to some degree of normality relatively soon.
Please text or email me if you have any questions, and check the website for any updates.
