  2. We've had a lot of interest in our Summer School this year, but many people are not available on the dates that we intend to run it. It seems there's a demand for something later in the holidays, so we're considering moving it to either the week of 15th August or the 22nd August. If you would be interested in attending and are available on either of those weeks, then please comment below or get in touch via our website www.catalystdance.co.uk. You can also find out more on our facebook page; Catalyst Dance. Aimed at dancers aged 9 and over, our Summer Session at Broomwood Schoo

She has a really good demi-pointe range and her pointe shoes are well broken in (but not broken) but she finds it impossible to make the transition from demi to pointe as she rises. She either has to do do one foot at a time or uses her upper body weight on the barre to get her up! Releve's are fine, she's ok once she's up, but can't control that rise. I thought

The class is sold out now, but we'll be there to talk to anyone interested in coming to our Summer School and to answer any questions about it. 11.45 - 12.30 Studio 2

  7. Thank you Janet, I'm sorry I missed that. I've made the signature now. I hope it's okay.
  8. I hope this is okay to post here. I realise there may be a few dancers still looking for summer dance sessions and I'm involved with organising one.
