“Being back in the studio again with all our students has been a joyful start to 2021,” she said.

“We have a large number of  students returning to their usual classes as well as lots of new students joining classes.

“There’s an energy and enthusiasm in the studio that’s very apparent.

“From the youngest students who have settled into their classes to the more senior students who are showing a renewed focus and passion for their weekly dance class, we’re excited and looking forward to term two.

“With our COVID-safe guidelines in place and parents who are extremely diligent in keeping children who are unwell at home, we’re confidently planning for our 2021 recital to be in October.”
