We’re trying to make our communication with you easier and more efficient. Please will all pupils collect and complete our new ‘Mareli Pupil Packs.’ Part of this pack will be for you to complete and return to us, the remaining part for you to keep. They will replace any previously held details we have e.g email addresses/mobile phone numbers. We will also cease using mail chimp, in favour of a normal email with a newsletter simply attached as a pdf.
It is with a heavy heart that we write this post. Dot (Judy’s Mom) AKA Great Mama passed away during the early hours of Sunday morning. She was such a huge part of our dance school, particularly behind the scenes – she spent so many hours sat next to Mom ‘cracking the whip’ as she’d call it!
97% of ALL people who took an exam in December 2018 achieved a distinction (highest award possible!
Congratulations to Krissy Sutch for achieving 90% for Advanced 1 modern and Katherine Lester for achieving 93% for Advanced 1 modern and being nominated for an I.D.T.A Scholarship in February 2020
Congratulation to group 6&7 for achieving 95% in their group
Over the years, many of our students have successfully auditioned for dance colleges and have gone on to pursue careers within the industry, both on stage and performing on cruise ships including Costa Cruises and P&O cruise ships.
Mareli was established in 1971 by current principle Judy Cresswell, and remains a family run dancing school. Mareli continues to evolve to reflect current trends within the dance and musical theatre industry. Our staff include fully qualified I.D.T.A dance teachers and ex-professional dancers and a PhD Dance Student. The diversity amongst our staff mirrors the diversity amongst our pupils and we are proud to teach students of all ages and abilities into our school.
