She offered a short acceptance speech to thank everybody who’s helped us along the way:
“I’m truly touched by this award, especially with the amazing work that Louise and Jaina [SIC – the other ‘Rising Star’ nominees] have been doing in the world of dance. I want to thank all of you at ‘One Dance UK’ for this selection. 
Skylark School of Dance’s first year has been a blur; a few mats in a civic hall, now a school of 70+ students, working with Bromley’s national theatre. I work hard – nearest and dearest would say “too hard” – but the collaborative spirit of everyone involved and their desire to turn Bromley into a wellspring of ballet-talent, has been instrumental to our success.

Thank you to our wonderful students, “the skylarks”, their supportive parents and our fantastic team; without them there’d be no school. I feel blessed to be working with such amazing people. Of course I’d also like to thank my family, for their patience and support along the way. In particular, I want to thank my son Leo, who’s been the inspiration behind all of this.”

La Fontaine Academy Performance

Congratulations to our Skylarks that took part in this Saturday’s performance at La Fontaine Academy! We are all so incredibly proud of you, it was amazing! Next stop, Churchill Theatre.

Today our students meet the Moscow City Ballet!

A fantastic start to the new term! Today our students had a wonderful opportunity to meet the Moscow City Ballet dancers and watch the company’s rehearsal. We are also privileged to be able to watch them perform two iconic ballets this week, ‘Romeo and Juliet ‘ and ‘The Nutcracker’. Such an amazing source of inspiration!

30th Anniversary of the ‘People Dancing’ Foundation for Community Dance

We had the honour of being invited to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the ‘People Dancing’ Foundation for Community Dance yesterday.

Hosted at the legendary Cecil Sharp House in London, this memorable evening celebrated the unique successes of community and participatory dance and looked forward to an exciting future.

We are very proud to be involved in an organisation that believes that dance can change lives and transform communities. We share their vision of a world where dance is a part of everyone’s lives and our mission is to make dance important to all individuals, communities and society by promoting excellent dance practice.

Skylark School of Dance’s Christmas party

Thank you to everyone who came to Skylark School of Dance’s Christmas party, celebrating the festive period and our first term of classes. It’s hard to believe that we only started a couple of months ago!

As director, I want to thank all our wonderful students, “the skylarks”, their supportive parents and our fantastic team; without them there would be no school. I feel truly blessed to be working with such amazing people.

I hope that everyone gets some rest and has a lovely time over the Christmas school break; I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year. We’ve got lots of exciting stuff planned for next term!

Anya xx
