🌟🌟🌟STOCKPORT AM DANCE-A-THON!!🌟🌟🌟 Guys can you believe it's only 5 WEEKS until our upcoming Dance-A-Thon fundraisers at the academy?! The Dance-A-Thon will take place on Saturday 14 April. AM Academy will do their sponsored Dance-A-Thon during academy hours. Remember guys, the point of doing the Dance-A-Thon is to: A) Raise a minimum of £25 to cover costume costs for your upcoming performance of Trouble's-A-Brewin' in the West End B) Increase your fitness levels ahead of our performance, to ensure you can handle your dress/tech rehearsal AND your show in the evening. As you might remember from last time, the day is long and can be fairly grueling, but don't worry - we'll have all students more than equipped to take it on! Please remember to bring your fundraising forms AND your fundraising cash with you to academy on the day of the Dance-A-Thon. Lastly, if you haven't already supplied us with your clothes size, please give us these details ASAP. We will begin looking at the purchase of costumes next term.
Good luck Alexander! 🎉

If your Academy is closed this weekend due to the snowy weather why not complete your own Film & TV Snow Day Challenge? (Thank you PQA Worcester for the wonderful suggestion!) You could: 1. Film a 1 minute silent snow film 2. A short snow report from your area. Watch local TV on location reports for ideas. 3. Shoot a short stop frame film of the process of snow building up on an object or the process of making snow art These challenges can be completed inside but if venturing outside to film please make sure it is safe to do so and remember to wrap up warm! Parents - we would love to see the films! ❄️🎬
