Does your child dance and sing around the house? Let their talent thrive at Telford-based MD School

I found this on several well established, reputable dance school pages and thought I’d share it.

Dance parents I have some advice for you.

💜Allow your dancer to grow up in the same studio. Consistency, a support network and personal touch is priceless.

💜Withstand the grass in greener feeling and allow yourself to trust the teachers, the studios and their program. Sharing your studio time with another dance school will always end badly as it’s unethical and simply not acceptable.

💜Give it time.

I come across both sorts of dancers; the ones who've been there since they had no front teeth and those that switch studios more often than I change our sheets. Whilst all are talented and working hard, there is a special something with those who've been in the same place for a period of time. Loyalty means turning up every week. Dedication is not letting your team down and commitment is everything .

(Obviously this isn't relevant if you move house or your studio doesn't provide for your dancer)

One very proud dance teacher and 3 brilliant competition groups have qualified for Regionals after our successful performances at Wrekin Dance Festival⭐️

The joy on their faces is the reason we do it, so to see their hard work pay off and get them to compete at regional standard is one incredible bonus. You’re all wonderful and you should be so proud of yourselves.

Please join us in congratulating every single student on their recent RAD Ballet and ISTD Tap and Modern exams, with yet another 100% pass rate. Furthermore, we are ecstatic to announce that 75% of students achieved the top mark of Distinction, an amazing achievement 🌟

This outstanding accomplishment would not be possible without the dedication from not just the students but their parents/guardians and their unwavering support, for this we will be forever grateful.

As we are following industry recognised examination boards RAD & ISTD, these enable many of our students to obtain much sought after UCAS points towards their academic futures to secure a solid foundation for their next chapters.

We are now enrolling for our new term with lots of events, competitions, more exams and preparations starting for our annual MD Showcase where every student gets the opportunity to perform on stage.

Free taster sessions are available upon request.
