Radiance Ravings - September 2016
Wow.... the best time of the year is finally here! It is CONCERT TIME! Our classes are starting, or have started our concert dances. We will work very hard on these over the next little while to have them ready for you soon!
Term 3 & Term 4
Dates for Term 3 are 11/7/16 -17/9/16
Dates for Term 4 are 4/10/16 - 10/12/16
As we are already in the swing of concert work, there will be no open classes at the conclusion of term 3. We don't want to spoil any of our surprises.
You will receive an invoice shortly for your end of year concert costume and your term 4 account. All bookings will be carried across for term 4.
Alice in Wonderland - Ticket sales
Tickets will go on sale at the box office at the Empire Theatre very soon. I will notify you via email, Facebook, Instagram and the website as soon as this occurs.
Each class will require a parent volunteer to help backstage at the concert. Each of these volunteers will be entitled to a discounted ticket. To put your name down to assist backstage and help with your child's class, please fill out the form below. Limited to two parents per class - first in best dressed :-)
Other options also.... we require volunteers for program and raffle ticket sales.
Recently our Performance Teams, Senior Fusion and Musical Theatre classes performed at both the Rangeville Fete and the TCC Language and Cultures Festival.
The performers did an outstanding job and we are so proud of their efforts!
Singing Lesson Changed Time
On the 3rd of September we will be hosting a double lesson! So the Group 1 & 2 will be singing from 1:00 - 2:30 and Group 2 will be singing until 3pm.
There will be no class on the final fortnight (Saturday 10 or 17 September). Therefore no open class will be held this term. Please see your previous email for details.
Living Dance International Dance Exams and Assessments
Our examinations and assessments went swimmingly on the 25 and 26th of August. Our examiner Sandra Godde was very pleased with the results. The students looked very happy and accomplished upon returning from their exams! We will have the results within a month and these will be given out during regular class time.
I am forwarding some Myer Gift Cards to five of our lovely families today. If you are named on a new students registration form... you will receive a gift card to say thank you!
