Friday 3 April 2020


What the actual heck is going on? It's so surreal and I just keep thinking I'm going to wake up from this bad dream.

My sister lives in Hong Kong so I was hearing about how it was all unfolding over there but I never ever expected it to escalate like it has over here. The worst part of it was seeing all the empty shelves in the supermarkets and watching the panic unfold, thankfully I think it's calmed down a bit now but I'm still unable to buy flour to use Luke's Christmas present and make bread. Never will I take it for granted again! It's scary times and worrying for everyone.

I was devastated when I first had to temporarily close down my business but after getting my head round it I'm much more positive. I know when all this is over, classes will be full and all the cancelled parties will be rebooked.

Everyone has been affected one way or another, Luke had a school trip to France cancelled, he was due to go last Friday so we planned a 'French' day and had croissants, pain au chocolat and hot chocolate! We have also had a couple of theatre shows cancelled too, it's so sad for everyone involved. Luke will turn 13 at end of April, we had a party planned at the Virtual Gaming place in Stoke but this has been postponed now too.

I am now actually quite enjoying lockdown, I've been busy clearing out cupboards and drawers and have taken up crafts again. I love sewing and after 2 weeks have still not got that set up but did get my wool and knitting needles out of the loft to start a project for Leighton hospital.

I have also jumped on the 'ZOOM' bandwagon and have been running online Zumba classes for 2 weeks. I also did my first Baby Sign/Toddler Dance session this week. It was so lovely to see all the children and hear them shouting my name. It made me a bit emotional and hope they don't forget me!

Can't wait to see everyone again!

Take care of you and your little ones and stay safe!

Love Sharon

020 DANCE FESTIVAL : The Roaring 20's

Last night I was invited to the annual 'O' Dance Festival at the Regent Theatre, Stoke. The theme was the Roaring 20's and dance companies from all over Cheshire, Staffordshire and the Mid-West took to the stage with their themed dances to celebrate the 1920's era. They celebrated Charlie Chaplin, Suffragettes and even Winnie the Pooh as well and dance styles included Jazz, Charleston and Jive.

The audience was buzzing with excited family members and for some would have been their first time on a big stage. It was a fantastic evening seeing all the brave and talented children of all ages, the choreography and costumes were stunning and you there was so much hard work put in by all.

The show is on until Saturday 1st February, its fantastic to see so many local dance schools showcasing their talents.
