Newsletter September 2014

Dear Parents and Students


I hope you have all had a good summer break. We look forward to seeing you all back in your classes and welcome to all the those who have just joined us. I hope you will be very happy at the Academy.


EXAMS Congratulations to Miss Sophie and all those who took their exams in July. The results were excellant, well done to you all.

ODYSSEY Well done to all the students that took part in Odyssey Youth`s production “Summer Holiday”. We all had a great time and looking forward to working with those that will be joining us next year putting on the production “ Bring it on” For those that are interested and between the ages of school years 3-8, our new group Odyssey Juniors has their taster day this Sunday 7th September at Carrdus School 2pm till 4pm.For any more information  please go to


STANDING ORDERS  I have sent out all your new monthly fees for the next school year and have spread this out over 12 months. Some of you have not changed the amount from your standing order. Please can you do this as soon as possible. When setting up your standing order please ensure that you put your child’s name.


AUNTY KATHY Unfortunately after many years of being there for all our babies when they take their first dance steps Aunty Kathy has now retired. I’m sure you will agree her and Aunty Sue will be sadly missed. We have been so lucky to have had such a wonderful lady helping make so many children`s first years such an exciting time and to help give them confidence at the beginning of their lives. To show our appreciation we are holding a surprise tea party on Saturday 11th October 4.30pm till 7.00pm at Bodicote Church Hall. It would be lovely for as many of you to come along and say farewell although I’m sure she will always support our Academy and come and see us in whatever we are involved in. If you are able to bake a cake for this occasion please can you let us know.

I am pleased to say that although we will miss Aunty Kathy we are fortunate in having Kieron Galliard from Odyssey to be taking over playing for our Babies and Pre-Juvenile classes. I’m sure all our babies will take to him like so many did to Aunty Kathy.


MUSICAL THEATRE We have changed the format of our Musical Theatre class making sure the students are getting the benefit of all that is involved with Musical Theatre. The class is Mondays 5.15 till 6.45 and costs only £9.00 for the hour and a half lesson which is an extremely good price if you look around at other Musical Theatre available. We also have Kieron Galliard joining this class to concentrate on the singing and I will be there with Miss Rosey to cover drama and movement.

Kieron also offers Private tuition for Singing and Piano teaching. For more info contact Kieron on 07939363553.
