We have had a fantastic start to 2022, making the very best of the situation we remain in. As we head into February preparations are well underway for our students to take their examinations.
We have a full day of exams booked in for Sunday 13th February, with most students taking at least one exam. Including our first session of Acro Dance exams for our SST students, who have been working so very hard with their new syllabus and are going to get outstanding results. We are already looking ahead to our next exam session already, as we have plenty of students who are so close to being ready to take their next grade, we are aiming for late Spring/early Summer but will keep you updated as and when that date is confirmed.
It isn't just our dancers working hard into 2022, our cheerleaders have been smashing it with their competition routines, as we head to Stoke-on-Trent for the event on 26th March. This will be the first time all three teams will be participating, what does that mean? We have cheerleaders from age 4 to age 18 heading north to represent the Strong Feet family (that's a whole lot of energy to organise). With all the preparation they have put in we are confident we will be bringing more trophies home to add to the studio collection.
As we look ahead to the summer months we are optimistic about hosting a summer show, to allow parents and families to see all the effort our students have put in to class in the studio and on zoom of course. The show may look a little different to previous years but we are hopeful we can take to the stage once more.
Finally, we remind you the studio remains a parent free zone as we continue to keep ourselves as safe as possible during the pandemic, if you do have any questions, queries or interest in joining another class please drop us a DM on Facebook or email us.
Lots of Love and Jazz Hands
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to the studio from Monday 6th September where things are slowly returning to normal.
Timetable and covid....
As most of you are aware the class timetables have changed for this term to accommodate individual genre's, however the bonus is we now no longer have shortened times for cleaning!! Please rest assured though that we will still be cleaning high touch points throughout the day and students will still be expected to sanitise on arrival. The boxes remain taped out in the studio although we will be allowing cross over of boxes whilst still maintaining 1m social distancing where possible (boxes are 2.5m x 2.5m).
We are keeping the studio a no parent zone for the time being, the exception for this is for the drop off of the 9am Saturday beginners class and parents of new students for their first class only. Please wait at the bottom of the stairs for a member of staff to collect/drop off your student. As we no longer have a 15 min break between classes it is extremely important that you are not late for your child. If you are going to be late for any reason please text Miss Michelle as soon as possible.
I know many of you are desperate to find out your exam results, as yet they have not been returned to me. As soon as I know there will be an announcement on Facebook and via the portal and students will be given their results in class.
I know many of you have been awaiting the navy cross over cardigans.... well I finally received a delivery this week. I'm hoping that it is complete but at the time of writing this I am yet to go up to the studio to sort through the order slips... fingers crossed!
I will be doing a uniform order at the end of every month. Please make sure you get any uniform orders in via email before the end of the month. I do keep some items in stock though so it's always worth an ask if you miss the deadline!
Shows & Competitions...
We are hoping to book our 2022 show and cheer competitions in very shortly. Keep your eyes peeled for more information coming soon.
Please can you email me, or message via the Facebook page if you have any class/uniform related questions. Please only text/what'sapp/call if it's an emergency. Emails/messages will be responded to on my admin days so please bear with me if you don't get a reply straight away.
We have limited spaces in some of our classes so please get in touch if you want to try something new or if you have a friend that wants to join the Strong Feet family.
Looking forward to seeing you all next week!!!
Lots of love and jazz hands,

We're back in the studio!!!
We are delighted to be back in the studio for our children's classes. It's been a very strange year but hopefully things are now looking up.
We are in the process of assessing where the students are in their training and looking to book an exam session shortly. We are also looking forward to getting a show and a cheer competition or 2 organised... watch this space!
If all goes well with Boris Johnson's roadmap we are hoping to have our adult classes back up and running at the studio from May 17th.
We do have spaces in some of our classes so if you or a friend are wanting to enrol in something new make sure you get in touch to secure your space.
Once again, thank you all for your continued support. The strong feet family has been wonderful to me over the last 12 months and I'm really looking forward to seeing you all again.
Lots of Love and Jazz Hands
