The 43rd year certainly wasn't a dull one for our Kercher family and resulted in our annual show being a huge success as always! We thank everyone who took part, those who came to support and of course our wonderful team of staff as without their hard work and wonderful choreography it could not have been such a huge success!
Moving forward into another jam-packed year ahead. We have some very exciting changes coming, new additions and of course lots to offer for all of the dance family. Do check out our new timetable for all class details but if you are new to the school or have friends who would like to join us why not come along to our FREE TRIAL WEEKEND!
All the details are below but this selection of classes gives you a real taste of what the school offers, allows us to see you in action and suggest levels in which to join us at, find something that you love to do and meet the teachers whilst even being able to work with and see current students perform. Do email us to book your place as we always find these to be popular.
We look forward to you joining us!!!!!
The new term with our Kercher family is already almost upon us and after another successful year we head forwards looking to another exciting one ahead.
Again we must say a big well done to everyone who took part in the end of term show Destination Dance as it was a wonderful family event seeing all our pupils from 2yrs to adult enjoying themselves and working so hard to wow us in more ways than one. Congratulations again and many thanks to everyone who made the weekend and end of term go out with a bang of celebration!
Now onto the new term........
We welcome all our current pupils back and also extend a warm welcome to our new members joining us for the first time. We also encourage any new pupils and current pupils to take the opportunity of our free trial classes which we are holding on the 7th/8th and 10th in all subjects and age groups!

DANCE, LEARN, BELIEVE!!!!!!
From the States to Europe our KT is currently over here and literally since stepping off the plane she hasn't stopped. After visiting us on her holiday ... yes thats right holiday..... she doesn't know what rest means!!!! Managed to find time (after she was personally invited) to be on an audition panel and then taught 3 musical theatre masterclasses in Gozo (nr Malta) Despite the high temperatures of 40 degrees+, KT gave her insight of the arts to over 60 pupils from the local Victoria community from ages 10 - 21 years. KT loved every minute of it and it was a pleasure on the sidelines to see the joy and fun all of the students from the Centre Stage Dance School were having. KT looks forward to working with them again as she was thrilled with their amazing work ethic, hard work mentality towards their craft and such passion for dance it was thrilling to watch as they worked in the studio space

Here's looking forward to another exciting term ahead and we thank all our pupils and parents for your continued support.
This was a very busy weekend involved with our Kercher Family!
Firstly our Saturday pupils had the option to dress up as their favourite superheroes! So many were so creative from comic book characters to their own imagined superheroes that were going to save the world!
It was a great atmosphere in all classes and even those who didn't dress up supported the cause by still donating into our fundraising buckets! So well done Saturday pupils for making such a great effort!!!!
Secondly Miss Rcahel has been working hard on a Thursday since the beginning of term with our Kercher Tappers who all wanted to take part in the Record Breaking attempt "Tapathon". Members of the school age 4yrs all the way up to 84 took part. Some were complete beginners (including our very own MR T) all the way through to our advanced tappers in the school. We joined forces with Sargent & Plester and The Constantine Dance Academy at the Chesham Elgiva Theatre and performed along with others all over the country at 1pm! It was a wonderful turn out from all our tappers and was a super fun friendly tap event! Congratulations to everyone who took part!
Overall this weekend from both fundraising events we raised a massive £650.24!!!!!! So proud of what our family, fun school can achieve together!!!! :-)
After gaining the prestigious Artist Visa and being back in the U.S literally only 24hrs, our very own School Director KT Thomas was the 1st masterclass teacher in a "Guest Artist" series flying the Kercher Flag in Lewes, Delaware with Cape Henlopen High School students. KT took two days of varying classes in Broadway / West End stylised masterclasses to the 13-18 year old students. It's wonderful to see KT spreading her diversity of knowledge and ability worldwide whilst learning and bringing new varieties of teaching skills and disciplines back to enhance at home in the UK to our pupils here at the Kercher School of Dance. KT is establishing links with schools and theatre schools across the U.S so watch this space.......... there is more to come! Check out the wonderful article below!
