Dance School News
We are so excited to be back into the full swing of term 2.
What a full and fun term it is going to be.
Family Fun Night
Fancy a night of free entertainment and hanging with the dance crew? Why not bring the kids out to see some dancing and a free movie? Meet someone you don't know and inspire the kids with some interesting dance items!
Some of our students headed out to Kingaroy over the last week to compete. From our 9 items that we entered ,we placed in 7 of them. The students should all be very proud of their achievements - despite the rural setting the competition was fierce.
New Staff Member
We are so excited to introduce one of our brand new staff members to you. Miss Micaela is one of our own students who is stepping into the other side of studio life. She will be involved with ballet classes, reception, dancewear fittings and much more. Please make her welcome!
Micaela began dancing when she was 4 years old. She started with Jazz but not long after fell in love with Ballet. She gave dancing a break to finish her Bachelor of Design
but soon after found herself back in the dance world. Micaela has experienced
many different styles and exam syllabi such as Royal Academy of Dance,
Borovansky, Cecchetti, CSTD and now Australian Teachers of Dance where she will
be completing her Intermediate exams. Being exposed to these different styles
has helped to evolve her classical technique. Classical ballet and contemporary
have always been favourites, however Micaela has always had a love for Jazz.
Micaela has danced and taught with many dance studios in the Scenic Rim where
she grew up. With experience in teaching students from ages 1 to 12 years
Micaela hopes to pass on her love of dance and inspire the students at
Classical Ballet Workshop
This is an amazing opportunity for our senior dance students to learn from an industry current ballerina. Please put in an expression of interest today so that I can finalise our numbers and times.
We learnt so much in our last workshop with Miss Jennifer. We can't wait to host her again at our studio. Even if you haven't done Irish before you are welcome to attend this workshop.
Miss Meg will let you know which group (1 or 2) to attend. Smaller groups, more one on one attention! Stay tuned for details.
Our soloists will be dancing this week at Toowoomba Eisteddfod. Good luck everyone have a fantastic time!
We do still have a some spaces for term 2 in some different classes.
