All Sorts opened their doors once more at the end of April, providing a great range of over 20 classes weekly at their Medway Centre Studio with strict compliance to Covid guidelines.
The classes for students aged 3-14 include Musical Theatre, All Sorts of Dance from Street and Cheer to Ballet and Ballroom, Drama, Pop Choir and Mini All Sorts. From 18th May the Adult Dance Fitness will also restart.
With the proposed roadmap relaxation of restrictions now looking likely, they are now looking to the future, planning summer holiday workshops to be held from 26 July to 13 August which can be booked on either a daily or weekly basis.
All Sorts also plan two live productions: The first in October, the second in November featuring songs from musicals and film for the 4 to 8 age group.
Stuart Principal of All Sorts said “During the lockdown we kept in contact with our students through zoom and when it became possible we held restricted classes in our studio. Now, whilst we don’t expect it will be quite the same as before, we can look forward to live performances with an audience - nothing can compare to the thrill and excitement of a live production.”
“We are auditioning for both productions now, so if you would like to get involved please contact us asap – there are lots of roles and back stage positions available.”
