September 2010...

Welcome Back Everyone!

Although the English weather hasn't been the best I hope you have all had a lovely Summer break and are feeling all refreshed ready for another term ahead.

Well what a year for Premier it has been so far! We had our I.D.T.A examinations back in March where we got a pass rate of 100% :-) I was extremely proud of you all and all your hard work and commitment paid off in the results as we achieved an amazing mark of 99% of distinctions! What more could I ask! A very special well done to April Whiting, Sacha Buitenhaus, Katie Ball, Emily Gander, Bethany Sayers and Kirsty Harper who all achieved an outstanding mark of 98%.

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Premier had its first ever party / presentation evening back in May and oh what an evening it was! With over 200 people who attended the atmosphere was electric and memorable so a huge thank you goes out for all of those who supported this event.

It was so great to see so many of my non competitive dancers take to the dance floor in front of that many people. To have that sort of confidence to get out there and dance was truly fabulous as some of you have only been dancing a couple of months - you made me proud.

As always all my dancers showed each other real support and I'm delighted to say that alot of my non competitors will now be joining the competitive side of the dance school in September now.

The highlight of the evening had to be the parent / child competition! All I can say is I can clearly see where all these children get their talent from :-) Thank you to all of those parents who got up and strut their stuff and a huge congratulations to Angie Whiting and April Whiting who won this event.

It was a superb night which was full of fun and laughter from beginning to end. Bring on next years !!

Selsey - Best Weekend Ever !

Well the title says it all!

Premier attended the Selsey championship weekender away back in June and came home with an astonishing 127 medals between 23 dancers!

We had an amazing 11 dancers qualify for the dancers of dancers competition where all dancers had to compete in disco, street and slow. Out of all those 11 a magnificent 7 dancers made the grand final!

Throughout the weekend many lifes were lost but a special mention must go to Chelcie Butler who not only become an champion but then went on to win 'Intermediate of Intermediates'! Winning a portable sound system :-)

Please see all of Premier results below. I think its fair to say its one we will all never forget! Absolutely fantastic - Well done!

Teacher of the Year 2010 !

I was truly touched when two of my pupils Katie and Nancy Ball nominated myself in the Worthing Herald as 'Teacher of the year 2010!'

It was such a wonderful surprise and meant so much to me that you both in your spare time sat down and wrote in. A very big thank you to both of you.

Camber Sands Festival

I can't believe that the Camber Sands Festival is now upon us. We have 2 squad days, Sunday 19th September and Sunday 10th October at the Sidney Walter Centre 10:00 - 1:00pm

Squad days are not optional. If you are attending this years Camber you must attend squad day.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my dancers who will be attending thr festival the very best of luck. Have fun, loads of smiles and the main thing is ENJOY IT !!


New Uniform - Competitors Only!

I am delighted to say that as of September 2010 Premier will now have a set uniform for all competitors to wear in dance class costing around £20 - £30.

The Premier tops you can purchase off myself however the bottoms I would like just plain black jazz pants or genie pants, No Leggings!

All Premier tracksuits must be worn at competitions.


Christmas Party

Premier's Christmas Party for all competitors has been booked for Saturday 11th December 1:00 - 3:00pm at the Aquarena in Worthing.

A Maximum of 40 people are allowed in the pool. I have arranged to have all inflatables out and flumes in use.

After an hour in the pool we will then have food and drink in the tea room followed by secret Santa!

As always there will be a Christmas mums meal too, so parents if any of you have any suggestions where to go this year then let me know.


Extra News

I would like to congratulate two of our Premier mums Tessa and Amanda on the birth of their beautiful baby boys. Kai Buitenhaus was born in June and Ryley Searle was born in August. There absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't be happier for you both - Congratulations.
