Happy New Year everyone
As we prepare for the start of our new term, we have brilliant news to bring you.
We are very proud to be able to announce that Sophie Kemp has been selected to join the Young Creatives 2022.
Sophie is one of only twenty 15-19 yr olds who were chosen from a huge amount of hopeful choreographers throughout the UK.
After sending a video audition of her dancing her own lyrical dance choreography (of which Sophie won the section at the last dance festival) back in November, Sophie received the wonderful news just before Christmas and has had to keep it a secret until now!
Young Creatives is designed to develop, celebrate and promote the choreographic talents of young people from across the UK. It has been running for over 10 years and is delivered by One Dance UK.
The workshop series will be led by a range of industry professionals. The first session will be led by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, Choreographer for SIX the musical, and rehearsal director for Hamilton on the West End. Each workshop will have a different focus, with the aim not only of exploring different creative approaches and the communication of ideas, but also how additional features such as film, costume and lighting can be used to enhance choreography.
Sophie who recently gained Distinction for her Intermediate RAD ballet exam is very excited to meet and work with everyone.
We wish Sophie all the best in this new and wonderful choreographic opportunity.

We’re into our first famous ‘KH Saturdays’ of the term and boy what a great start we’re having.
These photos are from Summer ‘21 (we love KH photo challenge) when our seniors don’t rest but work over summer to achieve their dream. Great first week guys.
Well done Team KH 👏👏👏👏
KH Saturdays- What a great day everyone.
Here’s some photographs of mainly our Drama classes with Miss Allison but also singing with Miss Nicky and some Theatre Tots. We’ve thrown in an archive photo of some of our seniors to get the full age range of the day.
Thanks for a great first week back everyone and for your continuous support during our covid secure measures .

Our let’s pretend class are back to being able to dress up. Yippee 👏
We can’t swap yet but by wearing a costume these little ones can become anything they want to be. The imagination of a child is magical and by encouraging their story telling by being the character of their chosen costume brings out their best acting skills.
Places available 10.45 Mondays.

Sunday evening smiles....
and lots of them today as it was our long awaited IDTA exams, with a visiting examiner, ‘a real live one’ as some of our younger ones said.
Everyone looking lovely and smart in uniform, from our tiny little first time exam children to our seasoned seniors.
Good day everyone!
Thank you to everyone for helping our exams run smoothly .

A blustery day with lots of giggling children coming in this morning, a little windswept but ready and excited to work hard.

Another lovely week…

Sunday morning smiles
How can I not smile when I get a text last night from Sas my niece letting me know she’d managed to get former KH pupils seats for the final auditions of Britain’s Got Talent at London Palladium.
Former pupil Sas has been working on BGT and said she got Rosie and April seats at the front, right behind Simon Cowell.
I’m sure you’ll have had a blast girls.
Thanks for making me smile Sas.
