Another Welcome to the coolest kids in town! LIL BEATZ
Another welcome! Lil Beatz has recently started using our studios for their street classes, open to children aged 2-6. We are so happy to be working with them and love seeing such smiley faces when the students arrive for their lessons. Mr Ryan is now teaching for Lil Beatz Blackpool, as well as continuing on with our street classes at AVR. We can’t wait to watch those little stars take to the stage!
During the last lockdown a large amount of building work has taken place throughout the AVR leading to the renovation of studio 3 (previously studio 2) and a fantastic green room for our students. Work is continuing to add another new studio (studio 4) to our facilities, with the aim that this will be ready for September, providing more options and benefits to all our students. Throughout lockdown we also renovated the sports bar downstairs and continue to work on the lounge.
You may also have noticed the bowlers. We officially purchased the bowling green and pavilion 2 years ago and we are thrilled and very proud that it has now been restored to it’s former glory as a bowling green. Downstairs is now a members bar, however parent’s are very welcome to apply for membership. Membership will give you discounted drinks and discounted entry on some events. Please speak to Denise for more information.
Competitions – We are extremely proud of how well our students have done with online competitions during lockdown with lots of medals and trophies awarded. In our most recent competition, all 4 of the group dances entered placed in 1st, with a number of our soloists placing in the top 3 for their categories too. We are already looking forward to being able to compete in person again this year and our show teams are working super hard in preparation. Big thank you to Kirsty for organising our competition teams.
Performance Team – We are looking to add students to both of our current Performance Teams. Please enquire at Reception or with Miss Amie for more information.
Privates – Limited slots are still available for private sessions. Please enquire at Reception or by messaging AVR directly if you are interested.
