Please Invite your family and Friends

The theatre is large and there are plenty of seats so please invite lots of family and friends so that the students have a good audience. We operate on an open seating system so you can sit wherever you wish.

I am confident that it is going to be a fabulous show! Suitable for all ages the ballet has a delightful story line with lots of drama and promises to entertain and enthral. The students have worked very hard to perfect their dances and they are all dancing well and really engaging with their roles. And as always, just wait till you see the costumes!

Helpers Needed Please

Please also remember that we now have our Show Information Noticeboard up on line as a Google doc and you can access this and volunteer to help by following the link below:

We need lots of help please and couldn’t put on this show without your support. So please help us and volunteer for something. Thank you to those of you who have already signed up for a job. 


Large Group Dress Rehearsals at Torbay Community Hall: The Princess and the Goblin ballet has a lovely story line and soon we will be ready to put the whole ballet together. The ballet is divided into colour coded scenes and the classes dancing in each scene will need to rehearse together so from 31st October onwards we will be holding large group dress rehearsals instead of normal classes. The venue for the large group rehearsals is the Torbay Community Hall.

From Tuesday 31st October till the show please only come when your class is required as detailed below on the large group rehearsal schedule. The only class that will run as normal that week is the adult ballet class.  

At these dress rehearsals students need to wear costumes with hair tied up as requested - but makeup is not required. Please bring all items as listed on your costume requirement notice sent out last term.

Below follows the detailed schedule for the weeks leading up to the show. Please make a special effort to attend. It is really important as we will be putting the whole ballet together and we need everyone there.
