Dance School News
Hello lovely Dance Families
Wow! Can you believe it has been two years? What an adventure:-) I am so glad that you have journeyed with us! And I know the best is yet to come.
Our newsletters will normally 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.
This week to celebrate our 2nd birthday... we are offering gift classes. If you book another class for any of your dancers this week they will receive a 50% discount on that class for the rest of the Semester! So... if Suzy has always wanted to do Tap but she is only booked into ballet, this week you can book her for tap at 50% off the usual rate. Deal ends 10 July!
Simply email the studio using the code "Gift Time" to take advantage of this offer.
*Conditions apply. Only for students with previous bookings.
Our Super Workshop timetable is now out!
See below our guest artist "Swan Lake" with the Mariinsky Theatre in Madrid, Spain.
Please click on the timetable below for more details. There are still some spaces... ONLY for the pre-school age dancers. If you still haven't booked your spot click July Super workshop bookings below.
Please make sure your dancer is dressed nice and neatly. Ballet leotard, skirt optional, hair up neat and tidy off the face. It is really important to show our special guests the respect that is required. (Senior girls please no pony tails! Ballet buns, braids, French rolls - no hair on the shoulders!) Please arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before your class ready to warm up.
Australian Teachers of Dance - Examinations
We learned a lot when we had our Australian Teachers of Dance Examiner here at the studio last week. All of our exam students are now more ready than ever. If any classes still need further tweaking some more rehearsals will be called.
The draft timetable for the exams is now out... please see below. This has been submitted now and I am unable to make changes unless requested by the Australian Teachers of Dance.
Please note ALL exam students will require their full correct uniform on the day of their exam. Classical Ballet Students Test 1-2 in ballet socks. Test Three upwards in ballet stockings. Jazz and Tap in Jazz socks. This includes the Lily Ribbon in your correct uniform color.
Our Performance Teams, Bronze Medal Ballet and some Fusion classes are invited to participate in the Language and Cultural Festival at Queens Park on the 20th August. Please keep the date:-)
Our teaching staff is already in full swing preparing for the concert! We are planning roles, designing costumes and much more. All students from Simple Steps to Gold Medal will be involved with the concert on Saturday the 18 November. You will receive an invoice for costume hire in term 3. Your children will really enjoy this amazing experience!

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.
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.
