Sapphire Dance Studios
Hi Dancers and Parents,
Welcome back and to our new term. For those of you that follow us on Facebook you might already know I’ve been
busy taking training courses throughout the summer to help make improvements for our studio. We are now
associated with the following dance organisations… IDTA, BDAF and UDO, this means we can now learn each
organisations syllabus and take recognised exams for all of them. Between now and Christmas we will be working
towards the IDTA Freestyle syllabus bronze award exams instead of working towards a Christmas show. More details
will be given out regarding exam dates and prices once the Examiner has confirmed the dates. All dancers will be
entered unless parents wish to decline, please feel free to ask me what the exams will be like.
No Christmas show this year but… We will be having a Christmas disco for all our dancers, their families and friends
this is to raise money for equipment such as crash mats for the dancers to improve their acrobatics helping them in
their Street dance competitions and exams. Tickets go on sale from October and we ask that all dancers sell tickets
to family and friends.
Competitions, our current competition crew has been adjusted and we now have 2 crews our under 14 girls crew are
now ‘Polished’ and we have an under 10s mixed crew are ‘Twisted’ so NO crew dance will be taking part at the
