DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
Keep an eye on both Facebook and Instagram for our regular online challenges.
Saturdays from 25th April - 23rd May - Live Online Classes
ALL dancers can tune in. See your emails for how to be a part of this and your allocated time. Please check your junk if you cannot find the details. We hope to do this every Saturday next half term (after Easter). There are also likely to be other surprises in the meantime so stay tuned!
Lots of Weekly Classes to Enjoy On You Tube
More will be released as soon as we return after Easter. Please watch these more than once in order to practice.
The International Elite Dance Championships - October Half Term
We are so fortunate to have been confirmed a place at the IEDC. Those in the International Competition Squad need to leave these dates free (Mon 26th to Fri 30th). You may also want to keep a day either side of these dates for travel just in case, as we don't have the exact itinerary yet and you can choose flights that suit you best. This is going to be the most fantastic competition in an absolutely fabulous venue! We simply can't wait!
Look us up on You Tube and Instagram
Next half term will run from 25th April through to 23rd May and we hope to hold online Saturday classes each week. For now, to help people at a difficult time, we have decided to charge a one off fee of £30 per household for classes during these dates. We hope this allows everyone to keep on dancing and it will also give you access to our YouTube lessons. To enable us to keep afloat, in addition, there may be some 'one off' online events for which there is a charge if you choose to join in.

SSA DANCE DATES
The next planned SSA performance - TBA
All choreography taught or created in our classes with the coaches assisting is the intellectual property of Gifford Dance Academy. Both the club rules and the competition squad contracts state that dancers should not
perform our choreography in shows, competitions or at public events without both permission from and credits to GDA. Thank you.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET
At the end of February 2020, Gifford Dance ‘mixed age’ competition team were in the GRAND FINAL of THE LARGEST GROUP DANCE COMPETITION IN THE UK. They performed at LIVERPOOL M&S ARENA which is a huge and prestigious venue. There were 22 heats, 4 all day semi-finals at Blackpool Opera House and approximately 220 routines in the Grand Final. Our team came 3rd in genre and 6th overall for their age out of everyone in the UK!!!!!!! Our dancers are absolutely excelling and what an outstanding achievement this is for them. Videos were tricky to film in such a large venue, so please don’t let the quality of the video put you off. We hope you will take a moment to appreciate the quality of the dancing instead. Three of these talented dancers are only age 10! We are just beaming with pride. Well done!
