What I love about Linzi Grace School of Dance

Updated: Mar 14

Welcome to our new blog page, where you can find all things "Linzi Grace School of Dance"

I thought I'd make the first article about what the students love about the dance school, their classes, and being a part of the close knit Linzi Grace School of Dance family.

To start with I'll share a bit about what I love the most about being Principal at the dance school and the best bits about the school for me.

It sound cliché but my favourite bits are seeing the students progress - whether it be big achievements like a student getting accepted into a great college to continue their studies, an ex-student landing a great dance job, someone finally achieving that extra turn in their pirouettes or improving on their flexibility, right down to a pre-schooler finally joining in a class unassisted after holding mums hand for weeks on end. The big wins/the small wins: they all feel amazing!

Another favourite thing is our summer show. It takes a full year and many hours of choreo, organising, sewing, stress, tears and sleepless nights, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I love producing the show and creating dances the students can feel proud of. Seeing them beaming on stage, loving themselves and seeing how much they enjoy performing is everything!

I also love the friendships we make over the years. By the time the seniors leave in their final year to go off to college or university, it really does feel like family leaving the nest and I feel lost for the first few weeks of the next term without them. I love seeing the strong bonds and friendships formed between students who wouldn't have otherwise met as they go to different schools. We are so much more than just a dance school - we are a dance family and I feel fiercely proud and protective of all my amazing family members.

As a LGDS Dance Mum I can see over the years how much more confident Chyna has become and alot of that is from being part of the Linzi Grace Dance Family. Watching her on the stage be it with the Junior Squad or The Dance Fusion show is always a proud moment. Chyna has made long lasting friendships and for me i love the social chats I get to have with my fellow dance mums.

Thank You Linzi for all you do!!
