Normal classes this week
At the conclusion of term 1 and term 2 we opened up our studio for the parents to watch the final class of the term. However, there will be NO open class in term 3 as we are working on secret concert preparations. Sorry, this includes Simple Steps also!
This is the week for you to unveil the pieces you have been working on this term. I know some people are even working on fancy costumes.
Performance Teams, this week is your chance to show us your choreographic skills!
Don't worry if you have forgotten about it! We will re-run this comp again in the near future!
Carnival of Flowers
We would like to invite all students from Bronze Medal Ballet and above, Test 1 Jazz and above and Test 1 Tap and above to be involved with the Carnival of Flowers Parade!

Australian Teachers of Dance - Examinations
Congratulations dancers and amazing teachers. Our 2017 examinations were a huge success! We are so proud of all that we have achieved this year.
The examiner said she had seen studios who had been studying ATOD for 20 years not achieve as well as we did in our first year!
If you have not received your exam results yet, can you please check with your teacher at your regular class time!
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 18 November. 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.
