Time for a breather

We hope you all had a gorgeous Easter and the bunny visited your house!

We’re enjoying a nice break and hope you are too.

While one of our Easter Holiday workshops is sold out, we still have places in the other three! We’d love to see your dancer there next week.

Remember, all kids are welcome (they don’t have to be a dancer), so feel free to book in friends, cousins or siblings too. Activities are largely craft-based, with a bit of dance and lots of fun!

We have some make up lessons scheduled for some ballet, jazz and tap classes that were missed due to the recent Covid closures. Check your emails for your lesson times!

If you have questions, please get in touch with us at or 0402 927 688.

See you on the dance floor!

Check the Parent and Student Handbook for class wear requirements, and then ask at Reception for help with sizes.

Staying in touch

We love to chat, but it can be tricky between classes. If you have questions that aren’t covered in the newsletter, the best way to ask us is via email.

You can also join our Facebook groups where we share information, photos, ask questions and generally support each other along the dance journey.
