Familiar Faces Return

It was great to see 7 of the girls who moved to senior school last September return for the February Half-Term Workshop.

They have obviously kept up with their practice and were great support and inspiration for the younger members of the Club.

Well done and thank you.

Goodbye to Year 6 St. Dominic Savio

A day of mixed emotions. 


We said goodbye yesterday to our first set of girls who have been with us for nearly three years. There were certainly a few moist eyes but we are very proud of the determination they have shown and the development they have achieved. Not just in their dancing but as individuals.


At our last session, we simply ran through all the fun dances - at least once!


Senior school next year and we wish them all the best for the future. And a big thank you to them and their parents who have been extremely supportive.

With the addition of Year 5, there were twice as many dancers as last year. 


After performing their latest  competitive Waltz routine, Debbey Newman and Erich Ludwig joined our judges panel. Both said that they were very impressed by the high standard achieved by the girls.


Mr. James Broadbridge, Chair of the Judges, praised the girls and insisted on this being an annual event.


Rachel commented that the quality of the dancing and the smiles on the girls’ faces gave her goosebumps.

25 children from St. Dominic Savio and 10 from Calcot (including 3 boys) participated in the Festival.   They obviously enjoyed the day and achieved some excellent results - including 3 winners. The sportsmanship, teamwork and support for one another was inspiring.


Anya and Yasmin danced beautifully to win the Waltz competition.
