Results just in......Phoenix JV's our junior hip hop company have just won the Internationals again - 3 years in a row!!
We are waiting on results for the Elite cheer team, and the Senior Phoenix company will perform/compete tomorrow.
WELL DONE DANCERS!!!!!!
We will be auditioning for 6 new company members for September, to replace members who will be moving up to the senior team. If you are 10-14 and can dance get in touch - it could be you winning in 2015!
Little message from Julian, the director of Aladdin (we have 7 students in the cast of 30) :
Congratulations to everyone who auditioned to be in our professional production of Aladdin at SHP this coming Christmas. We saw around 100 children and the standard of talent was particularly high. We had to make some very tough decisions. To those who didn't get in: be proud and keep trying. To the 30 who did get in: you've got a lot of hard work ahead of you. This year's show is going to be awesome!
After consoltation with Medusa, our teen company, we will be doing a brand new big musical in March 2015 (Good to be Bad), and at the same time start work on Les Mis in L.A.M.D.A, for a full show in early 2016.
'Good to be Bad' is being written specially for the Junior and senior casts, with everyone having speaking roles and signifigant stage time. The show will open at Henley's Kenton theatre on 28th March 2015.
Good Luck to Phoenix JV and Phoenix Seniors (our hip hop companies) and Artemis Elite (our cheer team) who will all be competing at the Internationals in Bournemouth this weekend The JVs are defending a two year International Champion title, and Elite will be taking part for the first time! The Artemis Fusion hip hop group of both JV and senior Phoenix members already qualified for the UDO World championships this summer, so lets keep up the amazing energy and go have a great time! See you all on the beach afterwards!
Pleased to announce that R.A.C.T.A, the full time sixth form project (for a specialist free academy in creative and technical arts for 300 16-19 year olds in Berkshire) has had a provisional 'Yes' from New Schools Network, who will help us develop our application for the Department of Education.
****We need your help though! *****
We urgently need to find a current or retired HEAD TEACHER who was or is at a state senior school or sixth form with a Good or higher Ofsted rating.
Spot a few familiar faces in this great new education resource from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. Artemis Agency helped supply adult and child actors for this film (inlcuding Gemah and Niki!), which is interactive and lots of fun!
Big thank you to Harper at the Globe for inviting us to be a part of a fun day of filming!
Congrats to Fusion, our blended Hip Hop company (invited members of the JV's and Phoenix companies) who qualified for the World Championships on Sunday. We are looking into the details now, and will be in touch with all 26 dancers shortly. Well done team!
