In 2016, Langshaw Dancity celebrates 48 years under the amazing direction of principal Bernadette Langshaw-Clark. To celebrate this milestone we are undertaking an exciting performance and education tour of the USA including performances at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, a guest appearance on a Carnival Cruise Ship and specialist classes in New York City.
Langshaw Dancity's aim is that students should enjoy their dancing, gain good technical dance skills and finish each year with a sense of satisfaction and the knowledge that they have achieved something worthwhile for themselves.
Students accepted for private lessons are entered for dance eisteddfods, if they wish. Langshaw Dancity's award-winning Performance Group is chosen from students who do ballet, tap, modern and jazz classes.
Students are entered for the Royal Academy of Dancing (RAD) Ballet Grades and Major examinations and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Tap and Modern Grades and Major examinations.
All students are assessed during the year and a decision made on their suitability to enter their respective examinations.
Normally there are two examination sessions per year. It is expected that students entering RAD examinations will attend two classes per week and at least three classes per week for Major examinations.
The popularity of Langshaw Dancity, has seen an understandable growth in requests for students to perform publicly.
