CTS CLASS Closure 2020


Due to government guidelines all CTS classes have now stopped !

Classes are due to start back after the Easter holidays . However I will be following government guidelines so please check our Facebook page, web site and emails.

I feel very torn about making this decision, but feel the main priority at this time is everyone’s health and well being.

Please spread the word and see you all on the other side .

I have given students scripts , if they have lost them and want another, so they can learn their lines , please email me or message me. .Fingers crosses our show can still go ahead in July.

I may do a couple of short videos so students can keep up with their basic drama skills during this time .

Keep singing and dancing : )
