An Easter message sent from Auntie Sue ( Director)
From an Easter reflection sent to Auntie Sue.
A book in the spirituality section of a school library jumped out to me the other day. Written by Nathan Bryon, ‘Look Up!’, encourages the reader to stop staring down at phone screens and look up at the wonder of creation in the night sky. . In the words of American poet, Mary Oliver ‘Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.’ I think Mary Oliver is encouraging all to look beyond the probable, look beyond the possible, to look up. Happy Easter everyone 💖

Sunday morning smiles-
Good morning everyone, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter break , whether you managed to have a rest from Taxi of Mum and Dad or indeed had time away.
I have news for you all and that is I have an illustrated children’s book coming out soon. It is due to be published at the end of the month and although I’m apprehensive, I’m also very excited. The book is called Rosie O’Hara the Theatre Cat.
Rosie lives at The Royal Opera House Covent Garden which is where she got her name due to the initials ROH. The book is for parents to read to young children or for those just starting to read for themselves.
I’ll keep you informed as I find out more details, as you can imagine,this is all new to me. It’s been a long time coming as I wrote the book years ago and John encouraged me to seek a publisher, something I didn’t do.
However during lockdown shortly after John passed away, I thought,why not try to get published as John always tried to persuade me.
I’m hoping children will love it and only time will tell but I can at least be satisfied that I did give it a go and starting with A from a list of publishers I sent off my manuscript to Austin Macauley Publishers and received a YES.
More info coming soon. Miss Angela

It’s good to be back - can you believe on this day in 2021 we were having to social distance and everyone had to remain in their 2 metre squares!
We’re still grateful to The Milton Rooms for their support as we needed 2 venues to accommodate the social distancing. Just look how much this gang have changed! 😃

What a great day at The Milton Rooms for the Rotary club involve event.
Thanks to Helen from Friends of KH and Miss Angela for manning our stall (as our other teachers were busy at KH). Thanks to our Dance Festival Team for performing so well (due to only a 15 minute time slot, we had to use first reply rule for anyone on Team KH to take part)
However our young performers represented the whole of KH admirably by the wonderful comments of audience. 👏👏

Sunday morning smiles- Here’s a lovely catch up from Romy.
Hi, it’s Romy here with a little update of what I’ve been up to in the last year. I’m currently nearing the end of my second year at the London College of Music, and I can’t believe it - it’s going by so fast. I feel so lucky to be training at LCM, I’ve grown so much as a performer and there’s still more room to grow. The teachers I have are incredible and I’m surrounded by supportive class mates which has made my time here so far inspiring. I’ve been absolutely swept away by life down here; I have everything at my front door… including the west end - I’ve seen so many shows I’ve lost count!
I am looking forward to see what third year has in store for me, I have to submit my auditions for the shows in June so fingers crossed!
I have to thank Kirkham Henry, of course, my training there has helped me to be the performer I am today. Also, thanks to all the girls in my old dance classes I miss you all!
Thanks for your update Romy -Keep smiling 💖

Here’s another lovely catch up from Sophie....
I am currently in my final term of first year at Addict Dance Academy and I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed, feels like yesterday we were getting ready to do showcase at KH!
There are a wide variety of lessons at Addict and in particular I am enjoying the challenge of taking classes in styles I haven't really done before such as commercial, hip hop and Latin.
I am currently doing assessments in my dance lessons and working towards the summer show that will be performed at the end of June.
I hope that everyone is well,
Hope you keep enjoying your time there Sophie, thanks for updating us all ❤️
