Thank you parents who have been in touch regarding how much your children are learning and enjoying Miss Sophie’s classes. Our gorgeous Grade 2’s are already on to learn their dance after such a short time and via zoom on top of that ! 
Miss Sophie’s classes are true to our KH ethos in so many ways. ❤️

In RAD Ballet classes we have been honing into technique with arm & hand placement along with syllabus exercises with students jotting down notes to progress the following week. Keep up the good work ! Places are still available in the RAD classes please get in touch.

All allowed under strict rules and regulations as a vocational pupil. 
Massive thanks to Miss Sophie for helping me with the technical side that comes with the filming. 
Sophie stated “I’m so happy about my result especially with missing lots of dance practice due to covid. Thank you to Miss Angela for getting me ready and organising the exam, and Miss Sophie for filming it xx “

Former pupil update - Caitlin Walker.  
How lovely to hear what Caitlin is up to these days. 
Caitlin is working on the island of Jeju South Korea at the international school. It is amazing where dance takes you. 
She is at the International school (NLCS) on the graduate programme and is helping in the dance department working with 8-18 year olds.  
She should have gone out in July but because of COVID everything was delayed until January. She is there until June initially and has the option of a further year. She got a first in her degree at Laban which is amazing. 
Congratulations Caitlin from everyone at KH. Stay safe and Keeeeep dancing.
