Our bespoke t-shirts have landed!

After many requests from our dancers for a t-shirt that unites us and shows how proud we are to be Silver Swans and Tappers, we can finally announce our unique and newly commissioned designs!


The images were designed and hand-drawn by Cathy Thomas (@thelittlepaporium), a musical theatre performer turned highly successful artist and calligrapher. The shape of both the swan and the tap shoe are made up of dance vocabulary written in Cathy’s wonderful handwriting.

The designs can be ordered via I-Prints in Wokingham and are available as a t-shirt or vest. For more information on how to get your hands on one, click here.

We are so pleased with how well they’ve turned out. We feel incredibly special to have such wonderful tops specifically for our students!

Our classes may be having a break for the summer but that doesn’t mean Sonia has kept still! Last week Sonia officially became a student on the Masters in Dance Education at the Royal Academy of Dance.

The Masters course is designed to complement and work around her demands as a dance teacher and so will last 3 years, all via distance learning.

She’s had a baptism of fire with heaps of reading to get through but has found it's been great giving and receiving support from her new peers across the world in the USA, Canada, Malaysia, China, and Australia!




Here's what we've been up to...
