Well done to Moggy Strong who auditioned last month and was awarded a place on the Royal Ballet Junior Associate course. Well done!



We are holding an audition workshop for the JLD Summer Show ‘ONCE UPON A TIME’ on the above date.

We feel that this will give more opportunity to all students who would like to try for a bigger part in the different performing arts genres.

The day will be split up as follows:

Contemporary/Classical & Jazz/Commercial – 10-12am

Tap & Musical Theatre – 1-2pm

Nothing needs to be prepared and the idea of the day is to enjoy yourself and meet the rest of the cast. The groups will be split according to age and no one will be asked to dance/sing solo.

You MUST put your name down at the office to attend.

Important!: The above workshop is not compulsory and you may choose to come to part of the day or all of it. If you choose not to audition you will still be a huge part of the show and will not miss out. However, I urge everyone to come along. The day is completely free and will be lots of fun!

So come and join us! We will be looking for our Evil Queens, Hansel & Gretel, Snow White, Mad Hatters, Prince Charming, Red Riding Hood and many more……..


We hope you have had a wonderful Easter and welcome you back to the JLD studios this week. Please find the new timetable on the classes page and the term dates on the left hand side.

If you haven’t signed up for the Summer School already email Miss Hayley or the office to secure your place :)

We are delighted to announce the JLD SUMMER SHOW 2015:

Once Upon A Time……..

27th July – 9th August

One girls journey through a storybook and into the woods. Full of magical items, evil queens and familiar characters …….

 This is the highly anticipated event in the JLD calendar, only happening once every two years, it is set to be our most exciting show yet!

A two week workshop working with JLD teachers and guest choreographers in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, Commercial, Singing and more. Concluding with a whole weekend of performances including a Gala Preview night for the JLD Charitable Trust.


This year we will be holding an audition workshop day, which is free to everyone who has signed up for the show. It will feature Ballet, Tap, Jazz/Commercial and Musical Theatre classes. It is set to be a fun day and we will be looking for our main characters in all age groups.

If you choose not to audition you will still have plenty to do in the show!!! But I would suggest coming along anyway for some free classes.

The workshop is £245 per student

This includes two full weeks of classes and rehearsal, all costume and one complimentary adult ticket. If you would like to sign up please add your name and age to the list on the board or email info@jldschoolofdancing.co.uk.
