In May, we held our first show since 2018 at the amazing 'Hippodrome Theatre. I am so proud of everything these amazing dancers have achieved and it was wonderful to see them all together and having fun performing once more.

"You'll never stop us dancing!"
Lock-down was a tough time for many but also one of family & reconnecting. For us, at RAPA we embraced the change. I and my teachers were quick to get our classes online via Zoom and the children & parents responded amazingly. Even though some were in the wings waiting for classes to resume
Check out our videos to see what we got up to during 'COVID-19 Lockdown 2020/21', with our 'Loo-Roll Challenge' & 'Zoom Classes'
Also in 'lock-down'...
Miss Emma - 'Let's prep for Tap exams on Zoom!' I said.
'Yes!' the students & parents cried.
'Why not? let's go for it!'
Four of our fabulous students took their G3 Tap exam during Lock-down 3.0 with fabulous results.
All 4 of them passed with Distinction and we couldn't be more proud of their hard work, dedication, and resilience.
Smiles all around and what an achievement.
