NBC News – March 2017

Our final classes of Term One will be held on Thursday 13th April – just in time to enjoy a nice Easter Break.   Term Two commences on Saturday 29th April and we will be emailing the accounts for Term Two in the next week.  A generous 10% discount on Term 2 fees will apply if paid on or by the end of this term.  After this a 5% discount only will apply to payments received prior to May 6th (end of week one).   All current students are automatically re-enrolled into the best class(es) for them.  As we require two weeks’ notice of withdrawal, please let us know this week if you will not be returning next term. We have made slight changes to some of your class times, so please double check the class times as they appear on your invoice in case there has been a change.  All Grade 3 classes have been extended to 50 minutes and we have added an additional pre-pointe class on Saturday which would suit some students better than the current sole Wednesday class option, therefore halving the numbers.  Two new Repertoire classes have been introduced late on Saturday afternoon where the selected students will learn solos from famous ballets.  These two pointe classes will replace the current Saturday afternoon Senior Pointe class.   This past weekend was the Cecchetti Medal Awards at Immanual College.  We had approximately 15 students entered over the 4 categories from Grade 5 level to Advanced. We had some success with Scarlett Rees winning Runner Up, and Romany Hill-Thomson receiving an Honorable Mention both for the Bronze Medal category. Then Isabelle Despoja winning the... read more

2017 – Welcome

We hope you are enjoying your holidays and are looking forward to commencing your classes. Major renovations and upgrades are currently being done at the centre and should be completed by the Australia Day long weekend.  Until then our office hours will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10.00am – 1.00pm. The centre should be able to open on Monday 30th January for adults ballet, payment of fees,  purchase of shoes and ballet attire from the shop. All other classes will resume Friday 3rd of Februray at 10.00am.  This change has been made to allow our Friday students get a full 10-week Term, prior to the Easter and school holiday break.  Term One can then end on Thursday 13th April. A reminder that the early 10% discount for payments will end on the 17th of January.  After this date accounts will be reissued showing a 5% discount only, which will carry through until the end of the first week – Friday 10th February.  From this date no further discounts will apply. We are also in the process of finalising dates for both our mid year demonstration and end of year concert which will both be at new venues this year.  We will share this information as soon as these details are available. If you are choosing not to return, please do us the courtesy of emailing us as soon as possible so we can place our new students. Happy New Year to you all and we look forward to seeing you shortly! Regards, Jackie, Tara and... read more
