Dear parent,


We are writing with heavy hearts to confirm that the school will close after classes on Saturday 21st March.

We wanted to thank you all so much for your support to date which has been invaluable in getting us through this past week. The school has grown over the last 12 years into what we are now and we truly hope that we will be able to reopen with the same amount of students, classes and teachers once the news is more stable and the future more certain.


The next two weeks

Over the next two weeks our lovely teaching team will be working hard to bring you videos and tasks to take part in at home, alongside some fun activities for the whole family! We hope to send these out from Monday so please look out for our updates on Facebook and check your emails regularly.


What happens after the Easter holiday?

Like you we are watching the news closely and hoping that the enforced closure wont be for too long. However we know we also need to be realistic. We are looking at what our offer might be after the easter holidays in terms of an online offering or home tutorials to keep our dancers dancing. We will keep you posted.


What about the show?

All we know at present is that the theatres are closed and therefore it would only be right to postpone the show until more is known. We will make sure the show is at the top of the list when we come to planning ahead and hopefully this won’t be too far away!


A note to all our dancers – for those of you who have worked so hard for your dance exams which are now postponed – we are so sorry for you, please know that your hard work will not be wasted, dance exams will be rescheduled when the time is right and until then keep practicing and perfecting your art. We know how much time and work you have put into your dance and this will be rewarded.

To all of our lovely dance family we need you to keep dancing so that when this storm has passed Southwell Dance School can be here to carry on with your dance training and keep working towards those dance ambitions and futures.


Please be reassured that all examination fee's have been ring-fenced and will be carried over once they have been rescheduled.


Sending you all our love and best wishes,

Amy and Melanie
