Hi Leanne- I hope you are well, are classes back this week? Xx
A huge thank you to Leanne Mackay and helper Jodie for hosting a brilliant dance party for Emma's 10th birthday. Emma gave her quite a challenge with the music, but Leanne came up with a brilliant dance for the girls to learn for both dancers and non dancers.
An excellent facility in our local community, thanks again Leanne xx
Hello, Ellie has accidently picked up Rosie MacDonald's Frozen water bottle from ballet today (it's the same as hers). Hoping to get it back to it's owner 😊
Hi Leanne, a HUGE thank you for Holly's dance party earlier today. What a super venue, the girls all loved learning the choreography for Holly's tune combined with lots of fun games. Will highly recommend a dance party to everyone. Thank you x

[03/23/21]   PRE-PRIMARY BALLET ZOOM!!

There has been a problem with the scheduled class so a new link has been emailed apologies for the inconvenience and short notice only just realised when trying to find it to log in!

[03/18/21]   Wow 1 year ago!

These last 365 days have been tough and we have only managed 3 1/2 months of face to face classes, the dance school is still standing and our students are continuing to go from strength to strength on our digital Platform.

Thank you for sticking by us and hopefully we are on the home stretch and can get back to the studio next Month.

Miss Leanne and Miss Sarah ❤️

Good Luck to all our Families starting their home schooling journey again today.
Just remember you are all awesome and you got this.
.
.
Our term also kicks off this week on zoom. I am just finishing off the last bit of admin work and we will be good to go.
.
.
HAVE AN AWESOME MONDAY😃😃😄😄😄

04/01/2021

Today’s announcement although required is certainly not how I had wanted the new term to start. I am trying to remain positive whilst working out where to go next.
.
.
Zoom isn’t ideal but I know how much it helps the children when they are stuck at home. I am in the process of working out a timetable and will be in touch with all the details shortly.
.
.
We will get through this together and come out stronger. Take care

24/12/2020

We would like to wish all our students and their families a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
.
.
.
This year has been like no other but your support has helped the dance school weather the storm.
Sadly we will not open again as planned on the 11th but we are hopeful for the 18th. We have done it once so I have faith we can do it again.
.
.
Thank you for all my wonderful gifts and I will see you all in 2021

🎉🎈Happy 1st Birthday to LMStudio🎈🎉

This week marks a year of being at the new studio. I didn’t ever imagine when taking on and converting the studio that we would only get 5 months at our new home before having to close our doors for almost 6 months as a worldwide pandemic confined us to our homes and dance classes on zoom!
.
.
.
Thankfully due to the support from our students and their families we are back open and dancing in our studio once more.
.
.
.
Here’s to many more years of happy dancing feet gracing the studio floor.

Thank you for coming along the girls had a great time 😁

This morning I clocked up my 30th hour of Pilates teaching practice 💪

Last night I also had the pleasure of teaching an introductory Pilates class to some of Leanne Macveigh Dance Academy's senior ballet pupils. Thanks for having me!

06/10/2020

For the Arts to be deemed low-skilled makes me lost for words..........
This sector has some of the most skilled and dedicated professionals on this earth.
As a dance school with so many skilled students we will be taken part tomorrow evening at 7.30pm and urge anyone else who can to take part.

#morethanviable #supportthearts

Lots of our friends who work in the arts are struggling this year. They have been deemed low-skilled workers and told their careers are unviable. Many companies are facing closure, from theatres and production companies to studios and schools, and everything in between. Tomorrow evening a social media movement is taking place to raise awareness for how much the industry has been affected.

If the arts have made your life richer in any capacity, please join in at 7.30pm on the 7th October❤️

How are we doing?

Wow! I can not believe we have been back to classes for 4 weeks already! Time is sure flying and I am enjoying being back and I hope the students are too.
I have created a survey in order to check how things are going and to see if you feel there is anything else we could be doing during this time. So it would be gratefully appreciated if you could follow the link and complete. Thank you :)
https://forms.gle/GpbtNAwMu38x6PBz7

docs.google.com You chance to give us some feedback about our return to the studio and our COVID-19 guidelines

22/09/2020

Thankfully at this time there are no changes to report. As an organised activity and a COVID secure business our classes will continue to run as normal. As always the safety, health and well-being of our teachers, students and families are our top priority, therefore we will continue to follow guidance and update where necessary.
Thank to everyone for your compliance and support it means a lot.
