Hi everyone, I hope that this newsletter finds you well.

Who would have thought a year ago , we would be finding ourselves still in this predicament ?

But we are ….and the best thing we can do to get through it is to stay home, stay safe and stay in touch …..which is why I am sending this newsletter…the first one of 2021 x

I have been posting things regularly on social media, both Facebook & Instagram, but along with the fact that the algorithms do strange things and not everyone sees the posts…..I am also aware that not everyone is on social media and may not therefore be aware of things….

So ….in no particular order.

Following this weeks announcement regards return to school… it is very unlikely that we will realistically be able to return to classes before Easter. Please be assured that as soon as we are given the go ahead to do so, we will be putting a programme of classes together and unless there are any radical changes to the government regulations…..we hope that we will be able to offer the same timetable as we had when we closed in December….with some additions.

As you are aware, we are restricted to the number of students we can have in a set area in any one time….quite rightly so.

However, you may remember that early 2020 we announced that we had acquired an extension to the building and were hoping to expand into this. The plans were drawn and passed ……and then we were locked down.

We are still hoping to continue with these plans albeit that it will now have to be done in much smaller stages due to funding.

What its does give us though is the ability to offer another large space for dancing enabling us to safely offer additional classes to the timetable when we can return.

We will be working hard over the next few weeks to create that space for you so when we are back we will be able to utilise it.

To help with some of the funding for the building work…I have had several people offer suggestions of fundraisers, which I am truly grateful for.

Fundraising events

So the first event will be March 4 March-2 miles a day…………………

We would like as many students as possible to take up the challenge of walking/running/cycling 2 miles a day in March with a total of 50 Miles achieved  in the month.

If you could ask your friends and family to please support you, there will be a Tu Danse just giving page for donations. It’s a great way to raise funds and exercise at the same time.

If you would prefer not to participate then maybe you would consider making a donation to encourage those who are please. Every little will help with the renovation/ fit out costs and will be very much appreciated.


A further suggestion was a virtual quiz night, which is another great idea and I will be posting details of this on social media once the date and details are finalised.

February Half Term;

For a number of reasons we decided not to do regular online zoom classes…and we do stick by that decision.

However during the February Half Term when the weather may not be fantastic….we thought some online classes, with a chance to catch up with your classmates & teachers , would be lots of fun.

So I have enclosed a timetable of classes for ONE WEEK ONLY ….. with details of how to book, costs etc. Thank you for supporting this.

Our teachers are self-employed, this has been a tough time for them and we want to help them where we can….by booking into these classes you will also be helping them, thank you x


To confirm what I have said many times before…..anyone that has already paid fees for classes in January- Easter please do not fret.

 Your payment is safe and will be allocated to future classes as soon as we can confirm term dates.



We always have a raffle at Christmas & Easter with fantastic prizes.

Covid took that away from us last year……BUT NOT IN 2021

We will have three fabulous prizes for our 2021 Easter raffle…..

 The 1st prize will be an EASTER AFTERNOON TEA FOR 4 delivered to your home plus a bouquet of spring flowers  

2nd Prize A cuddly Bunny with a selection of activities and chocolate Easter eggs

and the

 3rd Prize A cuddly bunny & More chocolate …..

Tickets cost £2 per strip and can be paid via paypal friends and family anita@tudanse.co.uk or bacs please make sure your name is on the payment. I will then advise you of your ticket numbers .

Ticket sales will close on Sunday 28th March. All proceeds will be going to help with costs of the extension.

The draw will be done online on Monday 29th March and the prizes delivered that week to the winners… in time for Easter.

Thank you for taking the time to read this….. I hope it all makes sense…. I know I waffle on J…..
