Well 2021 is here and we are full of optimism for a brighter future. Despite not being able to dance together in person this term, it has given us so much joy to see huge amounts of effort and enthusiasm from our pupils throughout our online Zoom programme.
Just shows us what wonderful little humans we have at DTA and it makes us very proud.

IDTA Medal Tests
As mentioned previously we have started work on medal tests over Zoom. I am looking to book an IDTA Medal test session soon but will wait until we can have an examiner in person as we feel this will be of the most benefit to our students. These are performance based tests where we welcome an examiner for the day. All students in First Ballet & Tap upwards will be given the opportunity to take part. These are not compulsory but give our students something to work towards and are a low pressure fun experience. I will send out the date for this session as soon as possible. Obviously this is subject to Covid-19 but will postpone if not possible at planned time.
New Friday Sessions
I am delighted to say that I am opening new toddler sessions at All Saints Church, Ardleigh Green on a Friday. All new pupils are offered a free trial!
These will be as follows:
9.45-10.15- DTA Baby Primas- Parent toddler class - Suitable for walkers to 2 years
10.30-11.00- DTA Tiny dancers Parent toddler class - Suitable for 2-3 years
11.15-12.00- DTA Mini Dancers- Suitable for 3-4 years
Adult Ballet and Fitness classes online
These sessions have been a huge success and work so well on Zoom as parents have the convenience of getting fit in the comfort of their own home. The classes are mainly fitness based and include basic ballet exercises along with high intensity interval training exercises working on body tone and light stretch. We have a lot of fun and welcome anyone who fancies giving it a try with a free trial. The sessions take place at 8pm on a Thursday evening via Zoom. Please get in touch to join usJ
We can’t wait to see you all again! Thank you to all our families for your ongoing support.
