All the tables were beautifully decorated with high Martini Vases and Fish bowls, with the flowers of the starlet colours purple, blue and yellow. After the meal a few thank you speeches from the Principal Louise and her mother Paulyne to all who have followed them on what has been an amazing journey! Entertainment was the wonderful ‘Jersey Guys’ who all put on a fantastic show!

Once the entertainment came to the end in true dance school fashion everyone was up dancing until 1am! It was a truly fantastic and enjoyable evening by all.

Saturday 1st October 2011 - Henley-on-Thames

Starlet Dance School was contacted to provide dancers to perform for Arlene Phillips ('So You Think You Can Dance' Judge and ex-Strictly Come Dancing Judge) at Henley on 1st October 2011. The children chosen to perform were aged between 7-14 years old.

 

The day went really well.....with an early start at 7am to meet at the Dance Studios for hair and make-up to be done (Thank you to Amy & Becky Lewendon!). Parents and children then made our way to Henley to the Kenton Theatre. When arriving the children met with Arlene and had their photos taken. Once the Theatre was full, Arlene read from some of her children's books and the children then performed their 'street dance' routine for her. Her comments after were "Sensational.....simply sensational" and the "best dance group I have seen in a while, whilst touring around the country". She then spoke to the children and gave inspirational feedback and comments - all positive! The children then got their books signed and more pictures taken with her and again she commented on how amazing the standard of the girls were!

 

You should all be very proud! Well Done Starlets!!
