March 2017 Student in the Spotlight… Ellie-Marie Berry

Congratulations Ellie-Marie!

Ellie has been dancing at JC Dance since the beginning of 2016 and attends Ballet and Modern classes.

Ellie has been awarded Student in the Spotlight because of the progress she has made in that time in terms of her confidence. Her first few lessons were nervous and tear-filled but she stuck at it and quickly grew in confidence. Ellie took her first Ballet exam last summer and took part in her first show last November (and despite some initial nerves, loved it!) and now is a happy, positive and hardworking member of her class.

When I asked Ellie what her favourite thing about dancing was she said: “In ballet, I like the bend and pointe exercise and in Modern, the Puppet!”

Here she is with her certificate and winner’s t-shirt… Well done Ellie!

Introducing… Acrobatics!

I’ve been looking to introduce Acro classes for a while and am very excited to have found a brilliant, fully qualified dance (ISTD) and Acro teacher (Acrobatic Arts), Helen Clarkson who is looking forward to introducing the subject at JC Dance.

There will be two Acro workshops this term to give those who are interested in trying Acro the chance to have a go and see what it is about. The workshops are linked together, so students will attend both and in the second workshop continue work started in the first. Following the workshops, dependant on interest I hope to establish regular (be it weekly, fortnightly or monthly) Acro classes.

What is Acro?!

An Acro class includes limbering (stretching), strengthening, balancing and (in time) tumbling. The classes include partner work and are great fun. For dance, Acro is used to add exciting elements to choreography within a dance.


Sunday 14th May and Sunday 11th June at Poulton YMCA.

Each session is limited to 15 children and the price is for both sessions. The workshops are open to current JC Dance pupils only. Places are on a first come basis and only secure when payments are made. Any 4 year olds attending must be at school, not pre school.

Group 1: 1.30 – 2.30pm 4-6 years £14
Group 2: 2.30 – 4.00pm 7-10 years £22
Group 3: 4.00 – 5.30pm 11+yrs £22

If you have any questions please ask!

I’ve said it before but we really do love our adult classes here at JC Dance – when the school started with just two classes back in 2004 one was a beginners adult tap class (and one member of that original beginner’s tap group is still dancing… my Mum!) and adult classes have been on the timetable continuously since then.

Anyway, as our current lovely Monday Beginner Adult Ballet class are no longer technically beginners we are promoting them to “Improvers” and starting a brand new – absolutely FROM SCRATCH Beginners Adult Ballet class for anyone who has NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE but would love to learn and would like to be with others at the same level.

And of course if you fancy being a little noisier we also have 3 fab adult tap classes, all in the Holland Studio, Blackpool Sixth, which are all £5 per class, payable ½ termly.

  • Improvers 1 Adult Tap (up to 1 year prior experience) Tuesdays 7.45 – 8.30pm
  • Improvers 2 Adult Tap (1-3 years prior experience) Mondays 6.45 – 7.45pm
  • Inter Adult Tap (3+ years prior experience) Wednesdays 6.30 – 7.15pm


For those that have prior ballet experience, why not try our Improvers Adult Ballet class?
Monday 7.30 – 8.30pm also at the Holland Studio

  • Starting on Tuesday 25th April
  • Beginners Adult Ballet
  • Tuesday 6.45 – 7.45pm
  • Holland Studio, Blackpool Sixth
  • £6 per class, payable ½ termly


If you would like to try any of the above, please book a place with Joanna 07792 410490 or… Happy Dancing!
