Summer School & Holiday Camps
Our 2019 Summer School runs for two weeks in August at Orleans Park Secondary School, Twickenham.
5th – 9th, 12th – 16th and 19th – 23rd August 9am to 4pm.
SUMMER SCHOOL INFORMATION:
Marble Hill Dance Studio Summer school is a week of dance, drama, musical theatre.
Summer School is held in Orleans Park Secondary School, Richmond Road, Twickenham TW1 3BB.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENT:
The day is generally split into five or six – 45 – 60 min sessions depending on learners abilities.
Students normally have three breaks: a short 15 minute snack and water break, 45 minutes for lunch (which normally ends up with some kind of singing or dance off taking place; even though we tell them to rest) and then a short snack and water break in the afternoon.
Younger children will get respite from dance, either doing arts and crafts or watching dance or ballet on the enormous screen in the drama studio or if they just need some time out, they are able to rest and observe the older dancers.
As well as learning to act, dance and sing, the sessions are working towards putting together a performance for parents at the end of the week and students study all kinds of dance from ballet, lyrical, contemporary, jazz, Scottish country dance, singing, acting and drama.
In past years the two levels have worked harmoniously together, the older students are very nurturing and caring towards the littler dancers.
Teachers are permanent staff at Marble Hill but we do sometimes ask guest teachers to come along.
There are 4 teachers within the building at any one time with assistants on hand to help with any pastoral or emergency care needs.
Students go home happy but exhausted and excited to return day on day.
