We hope you all enjoyed the sunny bank holiday weekend. Some of our primary members took a break from the sun to join their fortnightly Dance class with Leila - these are currently taking place live online. Here are 2 of our dancers demonstrating their moves 😊

One parent kindly sent in this message of thanks;

“He thoroughly enjoyed himself as usual in his Primary Dance Zoom session today. Thank you Stepping Stones DS for giving a little bit of normality in an otherwise strange world at the moment.”
