I'm very proud to announce that the winner of the ISTD's Imperial Award for The Theatre Faculties 2013 is Diana Clifford, for services to the ISTD. When Paddy Hurlings, Artistic Director of the ISTD, called to tell Diana that she'd won this award, Diana was (in her words) "gob smacked". She was very honoured to be considered for this award as some great names of the dance world have won it in the past . In her speech Diana was keen to make sure that everyone who had contributed to the success of Anthony Clifford Studios over the last 19 years was thanked, her parents who have stood by us with support and advise, myself for, well, just being me, our children for putting up with the chaos that we live in most of the time, to our fantastic team of teachers, and lastly to the parents and pupils of the school, who without their commitment we wouldn't have this amazing school that we are immensely proud of.

Brilliant weekend of competition, adults joined us for the first time this year and came away with a few first places. Myself and Diana (and Charles, Debbie and Julie) were overjoyed with how everyone danced and you should be very proud of yourselves.
A big thank you to all parents for supporting your children and the school this weekend.

Congratulations to all that took part at the competition. Once again you all did us proud, with more qualifications for Blackpool Grand Finals. Again the couples shone, which goes to show that your dancing is never in question. You looked amazing, you danced amazing and in the words of Gabrielle you were Legends.

I've been asked quite frequently about taking some formal photos of students, in their dance wear, competition costume, or if requested a show costume.
If there are any interested parents or students please email me email@example.com just to register your interest.
I'll will set up my photography studio in one of the dance studios, it doesn't have to be just your son/daughter, you could have a family portrait, or if your an older student getting ready for auditioning for dance college, you want to start your portfolio.
All photos can be viewed and chosen on the day, there is no obligation to get any and no charge for the sitting.
If you think it sounds a good idea just email me above and I'll try and set a date to suit the majority.
