We are excited to welcome Alice Jarvis to the FASBAT team. Alice will be starting 2 new classes with FASBAT at Cordes Hall, Sunninghill.
Get Up and Dance with Alice, is a fun and friendly dance class for both adlts and children. Each week Alice will be working on a new and different musical theatre or music video routine. The adult class on a Wednesday will be pay as you go and the junior class on a Thursday will be a termly fee. Dancing is so good for the body and soul - do come and join us.
Our Seniors class will be performing a newly written show about Cinderella. The show has been written for us by Chris Towndrow and the story starts with the Prince's Ball!!
March also sees our annual talent show at Cordes Hall. This is definitely one of the most entertaining evenings of the year and always full of surprises.
As Easter is so late this year, this term is going to be very busy. We will be producing shows for the Martist Schools, The Ascot Heath schools and the Cordes Hall classes. More details to follow.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be collabarating again with The Quince Players during their panto run in January of 2018. On Wednesday 17th January 2018 FASBAT will be attending a special workshop with the cast and crew of Tommy Tucker. All pupils are invited to join us for the workshop and then to sit and watch the show. If you would like to join us for the workshop and show then please email us through "contact" on this website. Places are limited so don't delay!!!
We are delighted to be raising money for our 2 charities during the last week of this month. Our adult class will be performing in the production of Jack and His Giant Stalk, written by Chris Towndrow. This prodcution is currently on its run in Guildford by The Guildford Fringe. It is an adult themed show with lots of "carry on" style inuendos. Great fun and a good fund raiser!
With an early Easter this year we have a lot to cram into this term. We will be opening the doors to parents for our last lesson at Ascot Heath Infants and Cranbourne Primary School, with a short presentation and an insight into what happens in class. Ascot Heath Juniors will be busy rehearsing for their annual show and then we have one of the hight lights of the year. Yes, the 2018 FASBAT's Got Talent Show. Can't wait!!!

On Friday April 28th at 7pm the Marist Preparatory School will be performing in TIME. This is the new production for the younger years of the FASBAT pupils. The show takes the audience on a journey from Once Upon a Time all the way through to Star Trek, Back to the Future and Time Warp. The girls will be appearing at Cordes Hall and are all extremely excited.
FASBAT'S GOT TALENT 2017
I really don't know how our pupils do it! Every year the talent show gets better and better and the acts get more inventive. The evening kicked off with the 5-7's 8+ and 11+ classes performing Is This The Way To Amerillo. Swiftly followed by a fantastic clapping routine by the Seniors Class. This routine as been done by Michale Barrymore and more recently Bradley Walsh at the London Palladium. We were to clapping as Riverdance is to dancing. It was a spectacular start to a fabulous show.
The judges this year were Sabrina Capes, an actress and a disney princess, Alex Coppola, an professional actor having just graduated from GSA and Lucan Mills, a rapper who has performed with the likes of Ed Sheeran . They had a very hard task to pick the Most Entertaining Act of the evening but came to their conclusion very quickly. Each judge commented on every act that took part and imparted their expertise and their wisdom.
Winner 5-7 Years Class - Emily Moss singing about a Pea
Winner 8+ Class - Jecca Millie Cooper with a monolgue from Cinderella
Winner 11+ Class - Amelie Barker with a self written monolgue that had an interesting twist

Winner Seniors Class - Ruby and Eve with a self written duologue about an Irish counselling session
Winner of Most Entertaining Act 2016 (As voted for by the judges) - Peter Flower with his very funny Rowan Atkinson monologue.
