EASTER DANCE WEEK AND
GERMAN EXCHANGE STUDENTS 2011




10 Students from Janet Seymour's School of Theatre Dance took part in this year's Easter Dance Week held in Germany. The students had classes in Zumba, Hip Hop and Belly Dancing in Sim Aktel's Ballettschule near Frankfurt. They also enjoyed a river trip on the Main, a bowling evening, a shopping spree in the city as well as barbeques and outdoor swimming with temperatures of over 30 degrees.

Thanks go to the host families for making our stay so enjoyable. Some of the students visited the School of Theatre Dance last Easter and strong friendships have been forged between the English and German students. We look forward to welcoming them back again next year.
