February 2012...

Hello Everyone,

Boy does time fly! Its half term and what a fabulous 6 weeks it has been for Premier already. We've attended 3 competitions this year so far and dancers have achieved amazing results!! Not only that but we have welcomed 12 new beginners on board too:) A special mention must go to our new beginner Tiana Blackwood who has danced in 3 competitions and already lost 2 lives on her adfp card, simply amazing!

A small group of us attended the Grays competition in February and we came home with 8 1st places, and 9 top 3 places! Well done to everyone who attended from Premier as we drove through that horrendous snow to get there. Sasha Archibald attended her first competition with Premier at Grays and went on to win her solo section and become an intermediate! Emily Gander and Nancy Ball back in January went on to win the Dorest championship title with Emily now starting her 3rd Premier championship adfp card. Premier also attended the Maidstone competition in January in which all soloist dancers achieved the top 3 places with a handful losing lives and coming home with another 8 1st places! Florence Manns and Abigal Lobo then went on to win the 'Beginners of Beginners' pairs section :) So a pretty good start to 2012 I think it’s fair to say.

As you’ll all be aware it is Exam term! Exams are being held on Sunday 25th March at the Sidney Walter centre. All times and prices will be finalised very soon.

As always a party night will be arranged shortly afterwards where all certificates and awards will be handed out as well as having a fun competition night including parent and child, (My favourite) Seeing where all my dancers get there talent from :):) This is a night where all family members can attend and have an evening full of fun and laughter!

On Sunday 19th February a former pupil of mine is coming back to Premier to hold a street/hip hop workshop! Michaela has been training at Tiffinays dance college in Essex and is coming back to her home town to teach PDA the latest moves! This will take place at the Sidney Walter centre 10.30-12pm DONT MISS OUT!!

The new Premier tracksuits will be going on sale around Easter time and can only be purchased through myself. These are to be worn at every competition please! Hope you all like them!!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that another Premier dancer has become sponsored! Nancy Ball an under 12 champion dancer of mine has won a sponsorship with Spizzle Dizzle! Congratulations Nancy and well done on winning your 2 1st places this year already. Keep it up! Also Congratulations to Emily Gander who in October had her sponsorship renewed for the third year running and again on winning your 2 1st places this year already!

Back in December myself and a handful of pupils attended the outstanding Disco Kid competition held in Blackpool! And we came home with trophies!!!! This is the competition of the year and the standard is just jaw dropping! So inspiring to watch! A special to mention must go to Katie Ball and Emily Gander who competed out of 57 competitors in the under 16 champion supporting category with Emily Gander making the semi final of the top 11 and Katie achieving a fantastic 4th place in the final!! I couldn’t have been any prouder girls and you represented my dance school in nothing but style! You done the south proud! What an achievement! Also a huge well done to Sacha Buitenhaus and April Whiting who also made their street duet final gaining 4th place and semi finalists in the slow duet category with over 45 couples in! Also congratulations to Chelcie Butler who was also a semi finalist in her solo over 16 champ category. Bring on next year!!
