The Christmas Dance Concert is taking place on Monday 9th December 2019, here at St Margaret Ward. The performance evening is an opportunity for the pupils to perform a showcase of their class work and dance club work this year and to display their talents in a formal setting ready for assessment.

The students involved (all GCSE dance students, all BTEC Performing Arts students, Y7 & 8 Wednesday Dance club and other selected 7 & 8 Dance students) will be required to attend an after school rehearsal on Monday 9th December 2019 in the School Hall 3.15 – 5.30pm, we will then have a short break for tea/snacks (students must stay in school during this break and they may bring in something to eat and drink) and then we will start the warm up at 6pm and the performance will commence at 6.30pm.

Costumes have been discussed with each class/club – students are aware of requirements. This term students have been studying the style of Contemporary Dance and so bare feet or foot thongs / nude or black jazz shoes would be most appropriate. Students should make sure they have all their costumes and PE Kit on the day.

The performance will take place in the Hall at St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy at 6.30pm and will finish at approx. 8.00pm.

We would be delighted to see you there and ask if you could please give your son/daughter permission to perform by completing the slip on the attached letter.

Tickets for the concert are available ‘on the door’ priced at £3.00 for adults and £1.50 for children/concessions. Any questions or queries about the event please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Page or Miss Lawton on 01782 883000 or via email using the following addresses /

Photographs will be taken on the day. If you prefer your child not to be photographed please inform us on the letter reply slip. These photographs may be used for publicity or social media purposes and shared on the school website.

We look forward to seeing you at a fabulous evening of Dance!
