(NB Membership is by invitation and audition only)

As you will notice, there are more sessions than usual this term (8 in total, with 3 this month, 2 in October and 3 in November).  I feel we have ground to make up, having had to suspend things last term.  I have also lengthened the session for both groups, and arranged for the younger children to have some Jazz with Nyroy, which I am sure they will love.

Fees are therefore slightly higher this term, at £195 for the YB Company, and £100 for the Apprentices.  For the increase in both the length and the number of the sessions, I hope you agree this still represents good value.
