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!
