We are delighted to announce that Monarch Studios has been nominated for UK Dance School of the Year 2017, with winners announced on Friday 28 July.
Now in its 5th year, the Dance School of the Year Awards were founded by Anne Walker MBE to celebrate the achievements of theatre dance schools that so often do not receive the recognition they deserve. From the thousands of dance schools, entries were received from schools of all sizes across the UK and Europe, with 34 shortlisted.
Monarch was founded in January 2014 by Jennifer Read, a mother of three young children. It has grown from a single location with 25 recreational students to thriving schools across five locations serving over 680 students. Monarch has enjoyed a number of significant achievements including:
- Founding an exclusive clothing line of high-performance dancewear for children, Mona by Monarch. Mona first provided dancewear exclusively for Monarch but now claims a growing list of external dance studios across the country. Mona also allows company students to participate in the design of specific items each season.
- An award-winning competitive team whose victories includes winning the Can You Dance UK Junior Championship in Bath, making them eligible for the National Championships to be held in October 2017.
- The teaching team at Monarch Studios is unique and truly inspirational. Monarch has a roster of world-class teachers and choreographers who come from all over the globe. Beyond teaching dance to a very top standard, Monarch's ethos is to instil a belief that with hard work and a great attitude anything is possible; that success begins with high selfconfidence; and that performing to an audience can lead to great interpersonal skills students can carry with them outside the dance studio. Whether your child is new to dance or very experienced, Monarch Studios' passionate teachers will nurture and inspire your young performer. Contact Monarch Studios to discover the possibilities! With ten studios over five locations, they are sure to find and design the perfect schedule to meet the needs of your busy family.
We wish Monarch the best of luck. Click here to find out about Foxhills' after school activities.
