Summer Course

Summer Course

Oxford Academy of Dance and Vicky Jukes will be running a three day summer course entitled “Wizards, Witches and Ogres” at St. Aloysius school between August 26th and 28th.

The summer course will run from 10am to 4pm with an age limit of 6-14 years old. The price will be £90 and £75 for additional family members.

The summer course aims to create an active and fun environment for the student to build on their confidence, maintain a sense of performance and creativity and have lots of dancing fun! We will explore the world of magic within classical, pop and theatre music, create theatrical pieces with poetry and work on our PERFORMANCE skills through drama games and activities.

The children will have a chance to develop their confidence and creative skill while working in a fun environment with a professional director and choreographic team.

At the end of the three days there will be a performance which friends and family are welcome to attend.

A booking form can be found here: Summer Course 2014

Show 2014 – Congratulations

Congratulations to all the dancers for putting on such wonderful performances on Saturday. You were all exceptional.

Thanks also to everyone who helped in any way, it wouldn’t be possible with all of you.

The retiring collection raised £350 for SeeSaw so again many thanks to all.

Show 29 March 2013

Please can you arrive at Wychwood School for 3.30pm with make-up and hair done and with all of your costumes so that we can make a prompt start at 4pm.

Please also bring some water to drink and a snack to have between the two performances.

I’m sorry but there is no parking at all on the premises.

Good luck to everyone.
