I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful rain and staying safe and dry!
It has been a wonderful term and we are excited about all we have achieved.
Our newsletters will be emailed to you once per month, but you can access them anytime. You will find all newsletters on our website on the tab entitled News.
All invoices for term 2 have been sent. Please ensure that you have paid the balance prior to term 2 commencing (18 April) to secure your spot. If you haven't received your invoice please contact us today.
Both Monday and Tuesday performance teams will be dancing during the school holidays. Please click the links below for details.
Excluding trials - parents, grandparents, guardians and friends are invited to wait in the waiting area, on the benches, in the garden, at a coffee shop or nearby park during dance classes. Unless there has been an agreement with the Studio Principal, the studio is for dancers and teachers only. Please allow the classroom to be purely a learning space for the benefit of all participants.
We hope you all enjoyed our open week this week! We loved showing you what we have learnt so far this year:-)
Australian Teachers of Dance - Examinations
We have submitted our date requests for July/August examinations. These exams will take place at our studio. The students involved will require full uniform, a day off school and the ability to cope in exam conditions. To find out more please click on the PDF below.
To take part in auditioning for Radiance Academy’s end of year concert Puss in Boots.
Auditions are open to students from Silver Medal, Silver Star and Gold Medal students.
Auditions will be held on the 18th of May from 5:45 – 7:00pm. This means that
there will be no normal Thursday class on that day for Silver and Gold students. The audition process will be run as an open class in exam conditions in front of a panel of judges (our teachers). Students will need to be dressed in their full uniform with their hair neatly in a bun.

Thank you all for your patience and consideration of others in the carpark. We have a few options for parking at the studio on busy days.
We have the grass car park. We ask that you please supervise your children in this area. We don't want any children injured, so please check before reversing out. However, this is to be a strictly no play area for students.
There is street parking on Angle Street near the Church. There is also parking on High Street in designated parking areas.
We are not able to access the kindy parking spaces during the week. If all other parks are taken on Saturdays we are permitted to use this space.
Please contact the office if you have any concerns.
We have had sooooo many discussions over the last few weeks about the use of syllabus. What does it mean? What do we use? And how does it concern my dancer? To have a read of my blog regarding this topic, please click here.
We were recently notified that we were in the Top 25 Most Popular for Active Activities in our area! Woohoo! Get active :-)
Can we please ask a huge favour? As we share our bathroom facility with St Mark's congregation, can you please help me to keep them in good working order.
There is a nappy change table in the third cubicle. Please help yourself to this facility. We just ask that you dispose of nappies in the wheelie bin where possible. We will endeavour to keep this cubicle stocked with nappy bags for your convenience.
Exam prep is under way for many of our classes. Dates have been nominated and we are starting to prepare. Exams will be offered in classical ballet, jazz moves and tap this year. These are not compulsory!
Things to consider:
- Child receives a report, certificate and medallion
- They will require a day off school to participate at the studio (1 Angle Street Rangeville)
- They will require full uniform including hair ribbon, shoes etc
- Cost from $40 - $150
- Additional classes (July school holidays)
DVDs and Photographs
DVD's are ready to be collected from the studio. The photographs are up on the walls and ready to order from the studio. Please talk to your teacher to organise an order or collection.
