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……..
