If you are around this weekend, come and see The Vision Project's 1st exhibition! It will be at The Healing Sanctuary in Shere from 2pm and for £5 entrance fee, you'll have a scone, a cuppa and the bar will be open too. The views are incredible but also you'll be able to see what's going on and look at the amazing artworks that people have done over the last few weeks. If you want to bring the family, please do and it's just £10 for the whole family to come along to.
Check out our website www.thevisionproject.co.uk for more information about the Arts Council project.

And to bring this back to reality, the 14th June is a good one for my youngest son George. It's International Bath Day (he would have three a day if he could) and then a good one or us all - National Cupcake Day. Maybe one in the bath would be nice. Oh and Alan Carr is 46 today. I love him and feel like we should be friends.

Have a lovely sunny Tuesday everyone.
The rumours are true - SUPER SATURDAY IS BACK.

Last call (sorry for those still twitching from airports last week) for Ballet Basics which starts tomorrow at 8pm. The perfect way of fast tracking in to a ballet class at the studio.

It's the 7th June today and the first thing I thought about this morning was thank goodness it is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day and Tom Jones' birthday, it's worth getting up today.

Have a lovely Tuesday everyone.

Good morning everyone.

How was your weekend? Feeling a little jaded this morning? How good was the concert! I'd like drones for the next show, I'll chat to Chris about that.

If you need a little energy boost, the studio is the perfect place today and also you'll need to escape the rain later on so here are the details for you of what's happening;

9.30am Technical Tap (Inter Plus) with Karen

10.30am Beginner Plus Tap with Karen

11.30am Drop Off & Dance with Karen

6pm General Level Ballet with Fran

7pm Contemporary with Diana

8pm Street/Commercial Jazz with Diana

Two big things are happening this week - there is still time to book a place on the BALLET BASICS course which starts this Wednesday at 8pm and runs for 6 weeks. And Katie will be starting her new SOLO LATIN AND BALLROOM class on FRIDAY at 11.30am.

If you can, this 6th June, you need to get out in the garden as it's National Garden Exercise Day. You can take a yo-yo outside as it's National Yo-Yo Day and it's National Thank God it's Monday Day. My boys did not say that this morning.

Have a lovely Monday and here's to a lovely week ahead.
Good morning everyone,

The garden had a nice watering in the night but the sun will come out later this morning. It doesn't look like it at the moment, but trust me on this one. Have I ever got it wrong before?! Yep many a time.

Bootcamp is now under way (well done campers) and then Stretch Flow will be taking place with Sophie. There is no Technical Ballet today but Technical Tap is on at 11.30am with Karen. It's your last red, white and blue chance and is the finale to our jubilee classes. National anthem at the end Karen?!

Here are the details for today;

9 – 9.45am LIVE STUDIO BOOTCAMP with Sophie

9.50 – 10.20am LIVE STUDIO Stretch Flow with Sophie

11.30am LIVE STUDIO Technical Tap with Karen

The national days today please me. June 4th is National Bubbly Day and National Cheese Day. I will of course partake. It's also National Hug Your Cat Day and unfortunately I can't partake as I'm allergic but it's a lovely sentiment.

Happy Jubilee Saturday everyone. Anyone going up to the concert tonight or are you watching it on the tellybox like me?
Good morning everyone.

How are your jubilee celebrations going so far? Well we have things happening at the studio today to make it all run smoothly for you. Adele is teaching a Jazz class this morning at 11.30am if you would like to go along and have a dance and then Sophie will be doing a red, white and blue Zumba class. There is no Drop Off & Dance or Zoom Ballet today.

Now, fingers on lips as I have some important information for you regarding Fridays going forward.

THEATRE JAZZ with Adele will not be running on Fri 10th or 17th June but from Friday 24th June, it will be at the NEW TIME of 10.30am on a FRIDAY.

Also if you were interested in SOLO LATIN AND BALLROOM with Katie, we have had to change the day from Thursday to FRIDAY and so from FRIDAY 10TH JUNE, it will run at 11.30am. So don't turn up on a Thursday, make it 11.30am on a Friday instead.

You could always do the triple eventually - Drop Off & Dance, Theatre Jazz, Solo Latin. Boom.

Here are the details again for today;
11.30am LIVE STUDIO Theatre Jazz with Adele

6pm LIVE STUDIO Zumba with Sophie

As well as celebrating Her Majesty, why not celebrate doughnuts, bicycles and cider too as it's all their respective national days. And for you history buffs, George V was born today in 1865. 10 points for the 1st person who can tell me how he was related to the Queen.

Have a lovely Friday and have a lovely weekend.
