January Newsletter

Hello CAD Families,

We hope that 2021 is off to a great start for you all. Below you will see a reminder of our important upcoming dates and further announcements for our dance community.
Coastal Festival:
We are very excited to announce that our Coastal Festival (run by the Coast Academy of Dance & Dance Works Academy) will be continuing to collaborate in an even bigger way come spring of 2021. The Sunshine Coast Festival of Performing Arts is now run by a new President, Sarah Lowis. Through a meeting with Sarah and a successful vote with the board of directors, it has been decided that SCFPA will no longer offer a dance discipline category and The Coastal Festival will be the only dance festival held on the Sunshine Coast this Spring. We look forward to continuing to work with the SCFPA in terms of scholarships, cross-promotions and being featured in their awards showcase. This is a fantastic development for our Coastal Festival team!

Please also be reminded that as we head into the second half of our year, attendance and communication are incredibly important. Please let the office or your instructor know if you are unable to attend a class due to health reasons. We also ask that you strive to attend all of your classes, while wearing your correct uniform, if you are healthy and well. Our competitive season, examinations and year end performance will be here before we know it, and we want to make sure that all of our dancers are feeling prepared and excited for these performance opportunities.
If you have any questions regarding any of our upcoming events, please do not hesitate to reach out.
