June 2012...


Premier dance academy recently attended on the 8th June the Dancer of Dancer Championship weekender held at Hayling Island, ran by Jane Hollis and Derek Povey. We had 30 dancers girls and boys attend the weekender aged between 3-20 years old and I am proud to say that we came home in total with an amazing 161 trophies and 3 Dancer of Dancer WINNERS!!!! The whole weekend was a major success with numerous dancers winning their sections and moving up a category. On the Sunday night for the grand finals of Dancer of Dancer we had 12 dancers qualify and an amazing 8 dancers made the grand finals. A huge congratulations to Tiarna Blackwood U6 WINNER, Kacia Searle U8 WINNER and April Whiting U14 WINNER. Also congratulations to Sam Crouch, Jemma Redpath, Isabelle Wildman, Max Stephens and Nancy Ball who also made those tough finals. This was such a tremendous achievement and as the principal of the school all of my pupils couldn't of made me any prouder the whole weekend!!

It wasn't only the kids strutting their stuff on the dance floor this year. All of the PDA mums rocked the floor and got the whole crowd on their feet screaming and clapping along with their fitness class!!!. I would like to personally thank everyone who took part in the team, you were all such good sports. We all had such a laugh, bring on next years. A special mention must also to go Gavin Redpath and Owen Porter who out of 68 couples in the parent and child category gained a respectable 1st and 3rd place.

All the dedication and commitment my dancers show paid off. I think we would all agree as a school its been the best weekender and one we won't ever forget.

Champ Class

Due to Premier now having over 17 championship dancers in the school, I have now had to split the champ class into two. All senior champ dancers class is on a Thursday night a 8.30-9.00pm and the Junior champ class is now on a Friday night at 6.45-7.15pm.


Premier would like to say a big thank to Design By Janine for our gorgeous new tracksuits. Should you wish to purchase a tracksuit please get in contact with myself or Vicky. All tracksuits must be worn at competitions please.

Exams/Party Night

Back in March PDA took their IDTA Freestyle Examinations and achieved 100% pass rate. A special mention to Bethany Sayers who gained the highest mark of 97%, and is currently training for her student teaching. I was proud of every single one of you. Everyone looked immaculate and danced there socks off and I had such excellent feedback. All certificates and medals were awarded at the PDA party night which was held back in April. With over 200 people attending the event, the evening was a great success with an electric atmosphere and plenty of laughs.I would like to thank everyone for supporting me that evening and for those who unfortunately couldn't make it can hopefully make next years.

Student Success

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Max Stephens successfully audition for the part of Bruce in Matilda in London's west end. I have taught Max now for many years and his determination and hard work has certainly paid off and I couldn't be any happier for him. We will look forward to coming up and watching Max perform. What a star!!

Also I would like to wish a very big good luck to any of my pupil who are appearing in the summer production of Godspell held at Roedean Theatre, Brighton.

Final Note

All of Premier would like to welcome all pupils that are currently on their ban, and we wish you every success and happiness here at Premier. Welcome to the PDA family.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all my parents for all your continuous support you show my school. Please note if any of you should wish to contact myself after 3.30pm, I will not be available due to teaching every evening. So please contact me via the hours 9.00am - 3.00pm.

PDA are going from strength to strength and long may it continue. Lots of love Carla xx
