  1. ACORNS - Sunday Associates with Woodside Dance Retreat

    Hi All We are now registering interest for our very popular Sunday Associates class for September 2018. Being 'Woodside Dance Retreat' we call our Associates, our 'Acorns' and we all know what they grow into don't we........Mighty strong Oaks! So if your son or daughter has a passion for ballet, likes to work hard and wants a boost to their current training come along and join our Sunday Associates from September. We only have 16 per class to give personal attention to each student and to allow me to work on there trouble areas of Ballet. Every Sunday 10am-3pm from our studio in Sevenoaks. We provide lunch for all students and also include a bit of personal choreography for each student for every class, all for just £45 for the day. This gives parents plenty of time to drop them off, know they are having fun and learning lots. Then parents head to Bluewater for breakfast and a bit of shopping, or to the many local tourist attractions in Kent for the day, or even back to bed for a while, safe in the knowledge that we are stimulating the ballet mind and body of their little superstar! Some students come once a month, others come twice. We are seeing incredible improvements and progression from every single one. Please see our Facebook and Instagram pages. Email me nicola@woodsidedanceretreat.com to arrange a FREE 45mins private assessment class so we can discuss your options, and what we offer while seeing your son or daughters ability and potential. We ask parents to stay for this first class so they can see how I work, and how I interact with your child and have a good chat. I am sure you will be very happy with what we offer, and I will always be honest with parents and child on ability and potential. I can't wait to hear from you all. Thanks Nicola Moriarty Principal - Woodside Dance Retreat / Woodside School of Ballet

We are looking for students with the right mindset, and right work ethic to train 10 hours a week with our Principal Nicola Moriarty (2 x 3 hours sessions in the evening, and 1 x 5 hours session on a Saturday). To show the courage and commitment to our programme to be the best they can be, while encouraging their peers along the way all within a caring small family school enviroment.
