End of Term 1 Newsletter

 7 April 2024

Students have been working hard this term and I can tell by their big smiles, they are all enjoying learning dances for our up & coming show later on in the year.  

 

Show forms have been handed out this week.  If your child is wanting to do the show, please bring the signed form back to the studio by the end of term.  If your child is not participating in the show, the form will still need to be filled in and returned.

 

Enrolments for term 2 are now open, please contact Peta for more information about classes that would suit your child.  Call Peta on 027 242 1442 or email Peta at petaspooner.nelson@gmail.com. Term 2 will begin on Monday 29 April

 

FEES are due in week 2 of each term.   Just a gentle reminder that payment is per class a week that your child attends (ie 2 classes a week = $250 etc)

 

ADULT BALLET in Term 2 - 8 weeks for $100 or $20 a week.  We will be starting back, Wednesday 1 May - 6pm.

The senior workshop was a huge success, students covered a lot of work. Thank you for all the cleaning products, the studio cleaning cupboard is full and Senior’s don’t forget that the products you donated will be your duty for term 2 😆

In Term 2 students will begin to learn dances for our annual show.  While we are beginning to get into the show mode this is the time we need volunteers to start putting their hands up.  It is so rewarding for the dancers to be able to dance on stage and showcase their talents for our wider community and it is the helpers that make our show a huge success.  We will be needing coordinators of age groups, dressers, security, sewers etc.  

We have been having a big clean up & a few changes made to the studio, a huge thank you to Daniel Franke from “Handyman Dan”.  Dan has been helping to help make our studio space bigger & better than before, he is doing a wonderful job.  Check out Dan’s website www.handymandan.nz
