Presentation and Re-Enrolment


revised date....

Presentation and re-enrolment

Sun 16th Dec 10am-12noon. Soldiers Point Bowling Club

Dear parents...

The most exciting and rewarding part of dance lessons is when you get to see your child perform on stage. Portraying a story like Peter Pan as a dance concert takes a big team effort as sometimes classes are combined on stage and main characters need lots of practice with all students.

 There will be extra combined concert rehearsals in Term 4 on Saturdays in the studio and in the theatre. All theatre rehearsals will be compulsory.

 Dates and times will follow with a separate concert information note.

Now is the time to advise Miss Kate if students will not be involved in the end of year concert as costume's are being ordered and choreography and spacing is being set in class.

If you are a new mum to dance please make the time to talk to other mums that have done the end of year concerts before to gain insight! Costs are kept low and it is a wonderful experience for all involved.

Congratulations to all Exam Students!

This year there was a 100% pass rate. All students prepared well and looked lovely on the day. There were 43 entries overall.

Participants included:

  Test 1 - Sienna Chalmers, Kyra Martynov, Kirra Horvath, Kasey Lee and Dakota Bradley.

Test 2 -Abby McGuiness, Bri-arna Spears, Olivia Chapman Richards and Ruby McCall.

Bronze Medal - Kara Beaumont, Ariel Chalmers Teagan Mc Farlane, Jasmine Donaldson, Leaunna James and Courtney Jarrett.

Silver Medal - Joshua McCall, Kelsey Dale, Lara Paul and Zarli Robinson.

Exam students have received certificates and medals for their achievements.

For future reference exams are a really great way to measure progress, and to document achievements.

The exam material is taught to every student in the studio which enables students to master dance technique. Many students would have received pleasing results if they had entered, as there are so many students working very hard in class and are really improving.





We have changed our name!

The Official launch of the new name Bay Dance Academy , Logo  and new website will be announced at the end of year Presentation!!!!!
