Blackpool Grand Final 2023

Our first Blackpool for all of the children, and I couldn’t be more proud. For many of us, it was our first return to the hallowed floor since Covid, and the first for the children to feel the silky dance floor underneath and what a professional floor feels like.. I do get a little excited about floors!

Having only competed a few times this year, Blackpool is a big step up, and I wanted to remind the children, that everyone competing here, are already finalists in the regional competitions. 

All of the children had recalls, some a few times over, and a few were finalists!

Blackpool 2023

ISTD Area Competition Berkhamstead October 2023

 A new and local venue for us, as the lovely Ashlyns School! A new and lovely floor to dance on, a couple fo fun competitions for even the parents to join in, and I think some of the children were suitably impressed by their mums and dads capabilities ! Yay! 

All good for competition practise, one of the crew came along to watch for the first time in preparation for starting next year, and fun was had by all.. we even had the juniors giving it a go in the couples section! 






Berkhamstead Comp

Gillingham Area Competition July & August 2023


The Summer months brings slightly quieter competitions, so another two events to practise in this arena, and get used to the nerves and the pressure..

As always, the kids danced well.. each event we can see the improvement and it all adds to the day of dancing. August was a competition with just the boys, and I couldnt have been prouder.. one winning both his categories and getting that much wanted Blackpool qualification under his belt. Fantastic! 

As always its a great bonus to win, but equally important to learn from each opportunity, and grow in confidence.. we can really see that happening. 

A local event next, which is unusual and exciting and then the big weekend in Blackpool awaits!



Gillingham Area Competitions

Fleet Area Competition May 2023

Everyone came today with excitement, a few nerves, but with the overall feeling of enjoyment and to get used to competing.

Competition can make things happen that never happen in practise, make us aware of where we need to work harder, or just give us the belief that we can do it, and it feels great afterwards!

Some firsts for us, our youngest qualifying for Blackpool, our newest competitor winning her category, and a few taking the opportunity to dance with their friends in the couples events, just for the experience. I love that, and it makes us all better dancers in the long run!

Well done kids.. another competition under our belts, boxes ticked and more pride from your teachers.. we really couldn’t ask for more (well maybe the odd pointed toe!)


Fleet May 2023

Grays Area Competition 2023

Back at Grays for some, and a first for others.

There was a great atmosphere, and the kids danced really well again.

We had 8 children participating, with 2 newbies qualifying for Blackpool, and another competition experience under our belts.

Again we couldnt be more proud of our youngsters, its a big step for all to compete and its a pleasure to watch them make memories and create new bonds with their friends.

Fleet Area Competition 2023

Another first for some of our kids attending the Fleet Area Blackpool Qualifier competition. 

The day was busy! For me it was the busiest since pre-Covid times, and again the children took it in their strides.

We had 3 of our boys attending, and one girl, all managed the get recalls in the busiest sections of the competition, and our two juniors were finalists, qualifying to dance at Blackpool in November.. truly amazing..and super proud teachers and parents all round.

Jubilee Dance Competition 2022

This was our kids first ever competition with children ranging from 5yrs – 15yrs. None had ever competed before, and most have only been dancing with us in the last few years over Covid, and as teachers we couldn’t be more proud.

Competing is way more than just the results. It’s learning how to deal with pressure, timings, waiting for others, supporting other dancers, having strangers watch, not being familiar with surroundings or the music, nerves that arent usually felt, etc etc. .. the list goes on, and the children were amazing. I couldn’t be more proud!

As you can see medals and trophies were won, but more importantly experience was gained and on the feedback from the children in class, they all enjoyed it and want to do it again, so it looks like the 2023 calender will be full!
