END OF YEAR PRESENTATION & CHRISTMAS PARTY:

YAY! We will have some short performances from our stars, a disco, food, drinks and of course our annual awards. The event is to celebrate the wonderful year we have had as a studio, to get together and have some fun and to hold our awards ceremony in which every year we award trophies to those stand out students who have been working exceptionally hard and achieving amazing things in their classes. Everyone is invited to come along so bring the whole family! 🙂

DOES YOUR STAR WANT TO PERFORM AT DREAMWORLD?!?!?!?!:
Thats right.. would your star love the opportunity to dance at dreamworld!? Well here it is! Along with our elite teams we will be holding auditions for dancers that wish to be a part of our performance at dreamworld in the July school holidays on Thursday 11th July from 9am-11.30pm. We will be setting a group routine and the elite teams will be performing some of their competition routines in our 20min performance set. There is a cost involved of $40 per performer but this also includes a day pass for dreamworld to use all the rides and facilities (extra siblings will include a extra cost of $27 for primary school students and $38 for secondary students, adults are $48.. also able to stay at dreamworld for the day. There is also a option to pay an extra $30-$35 on the day and make your ticket a annual pass). We however can only have 40 dancers in total for the day so unfortunately cannot take everyone. Auditions are open to dancers 7 years + up. We will also be needing costumes for the performance but this will be something easy to find or that you may already have in your dancers wardrobe at home- the costume is denim shorts and a bright coloured top.
-Audition day is Saturday 15th of June and will begin at 9am and finish at 11am- cost is $10 per dancer.
-Rehearsal for ALL dreamworld performers Wednesday 10th July 9am-11.30am- Cost $10.

ADULT DANCE CLASSES:
Every Monday from 6.45pm-7.45pm we run a fun, energetic and hilarious dance class for all you adults! If you want to get fit, tone, have fun, socialise, learn a new skill well then this class is for you! Don’t just leave the dancing to your kiddies get involved!! It is a 8week challenge with a new dance style starting every 4 week block. Bring your friends along and have some fun with us.. it never to late to join!
POINTE INFORMATION EVENING:
Does your dancer dream of going up on pointe and being a ‘proper ballerina’? Yes….? Well we are holding a pointe information evening/class for all students looking or hoping to eventually one day go up on to pointe. This information evening will be in a classroom setting and will provide your dancer and yourself with the knowledge and preparation skills needed to go on to pointes, parents are encouraged to come in and watch and gain knowledge from our incredible ballet teacher Miss Dione and the dancers will take part in some ballet exercises they can use at home to strengthen for pointe work.
It is vital that we as teachers and as a studio look after our dancers and keep them safe and their bodies healthy and injury free. There are far too many studios out there throwing children up on to pointe with little to no previous ballet experience and whilst your children may now be saying “wow Erica has been put on pointe at her studio” there’s no saying what poor Erica’s feet and ankles may be like in 10 years or sooner when her dance days are over because she was pushed too quickly for a studios growth. We want to ensure we are doing everything we can for our dancers and providing them and yourselves with the necessary tools to create strong, happy and healthy dancers for years to come. Please come along to this class if your dancer is interested in pointe work even if they are too young now, at least they and yourself have some knowledge of the process..
-WHEN- Tuesday 14th May- $5 per dancer. Tea/Coffee and a biscuit/cake selection will be provided for observing parents.
One of our amazing LEA parents has set up a online garage sale page through Facebook , please follow and share the page with family and friends so we can start raising money for our very own studio.
For the month of May and June only our online garage sale is coming to you, we have 100 items already in the box ready to go starting today at the studio for you to go through. Any 3 items in the box for $10 we will add more every few days. We also have shoes at assorted prices.
All donations are greatly accepted you can leave with Sheree at reception.
DARKER NIGHTS & SAFETY OF OUR STARS:
As the darker nights are starting to come in as we did last year we will be locking the doors to the building at 5.30pm/6pm when Sheree leaves, this is to ensure that nobody that shouldn’t be entering the building can do so. If you are coming to pick up or drop your child off for classes we kindly ask that you wait outside with them until we can get to the door to unlock it, we will be opening it in the cross over of classes but will not keep coming to the door and disrupting classes that the teachers are currently teaching.
All children on the premises should be in classes or in the waiting room with a parent or adult supervision, no children under the age of 12 are permitted to be left at the studio without adult supervision, we are not a babysitting service and are not responsible for children left at the studio with no adults. Our teachers are in classes and are busy working and teaching your children and Sheree is not always on reception desk she also has work to do whilst at the studio. Please do not leave your children unattended. We also ask for the safety of the children that you please drop them in the car park and not on the road and walk them in to the studio especially children under the age of 12 years.
We thank you for your cooperation regarding this
BENOWA STATE SCHOOL MAYFAIR:

We would love as many of our stars to come and join us at this event and support our teams in their first performance of the year together. The event runs at Benowa state school from 3pm-8pm. We can’t wait to watch you perform stars!
