For over 40 years, the Janis Anderson School of Dancing has been actively teaching the pleasure of dancing to young people — and some grown-ups — in the Tarvin, Ashton and Frodsham areas. Ballet, Modern Dance and Tap allow young people, and the not so young, to develop grace, strength, flexibility and rhythm while encouraging creativity and self-confidence. Miss Anderson and her daughter Jennie, are passionate about passing on their love of dance to future generations.

Ballet classes do seem to have become almost a 'rite of passage' for certain little girls, and even a few little boys. Janis Anderson offers tuition to enable youngsters to take recognised examinations in all disciplines and has achieved a very high success rate. Not all those who follow the courses go on to make a career in Dance, but all will benefit from the rigour and discipline of the training, and grace and poise they achieve will be attributes that benefit them throughout their lives.

During the summer month some regular classes are suspended, but the School is still very active. In July from 27th to 31st, a week's intensive course will see the production and performance of Jack and the Beanstalk, a 'Gigantically Amusing Musical' by Roald Dahl. Not only will youngsters sing, act and dance, but there are opportunities for budding costume designers and set directors. The course is available for boys and girls from 6 to 12.

In the week August 24th to 28th, youngsters over 12 are invited to a Back to School Fitness Week with stretching, strengthening, fitness and ballet classes available to help shrug off summer's sloth.

For details of timing, location and costs please ring 07734 853336 or email Places on both courses must be secured by deposit by July1st.

The Community Centre is delighted to have the Janis Anderson School of Dancing as one of its most long standing customers and hopes that the connection will last long into the future.

(My own daughter and son went to the Janis Anderson School of Dance with my son achieving a higher grade in their first, and I have to say, only exam. Perhaps not quite long enough for grace and poise to be fully absorbed! — SH)
