‘Learning to dance and dancing to learn’

Covid-19 update
A message from Jill

Our online classes for the Summer Term have now ended.  Well done everyone for dancing at home with enthusiasm, commitment and focus.  

I am delighted to announce that we will be re-opening our school and returning to our different venues for the Autumn Term 2020.  The team and I are greatly looking forward to seeing everyone again as we embrace the challenges of the new ‘normal’.

There is an abundant amount of activity ‘back stage’  to prepare for our return and as soon as I am able I will be emailing out our timetable, individual venue start dates, class selection forms and safety procedures.  

Thank you everyone for your support and kindness throughout this period.

It will take a while before things go back to the way they were, but we shall work together to ensure that all our students enjoy their dancing experience at the Jill Bridger School of Dance.

Enjoy the summer break and keep safe
