Wow, term 1 is nearly over! We have had so much fun getting to know our new classes and learning all of the new work for the year. It has been an amazing term with so much growth seen by so many students.
Term 2 is nearly upon us. You don't need to rebook. All bookings roll continuously throughout the year. Only contact the office if you need to alter your bookings.
Term 2 fees will be sent to you shortly and are due prior to the commencement of term 2 on the 23rd of April.

Qld Ballet visited in February!
We had a delightful time with the company members from the Qld Ballet in February. The children who attended had such an incredible experience.
We will be having open auditions for students from Silver ballet and upwards.
You are invited to come and watch class the first week of April. We can't wait to show you how much we are learning.
First Singing Lesson Today
Today was the Musical Theatre classes first singing lesson with the well known Toowoomba singer/actor Jess Parsons. We thoroughly enjoyed having Mrs Parsons come and spend the morning with our class.
Streets and Lanes Festival
Easter Saturday our Performance Teams will be dancing at the Streets and Lanes Festival at the Civic Square near the Town Library. This is always such a fantastic day to grab the last of the warm weather and some sunshine! Come and see what our brand new teams have been learning. 10am start time (dancers will be required by 9:30am) more details to follow.
Our performance teams and possibly Contemporary 3 are heading to Brisbane July 10 - 13. We are excited to again compete at this amazing competition. Venue is QUT Gardens Theatre if you are looking at booking accommodation.

Retail Shop Open Hours
The shop is open every morning from 9 till 11am (except Wednesday and Sunday) and every afternoon from 3:15 to 6pm (except Sunday).
We are starting to order in our crossovers, legwarmers and tights ready for the cooler months. But thankfully the studio will remain at a constant temperature all through the year. We can just smile and wave at the soccer mums braving it in winter out in the parks while we sit toasty and warm with a coffee inside the airconditioned studio!!
