Moorestock Mini – Welcome to the Building!
We are pleased to welcome Moorestock Mini to our building! They have joined us in the upstairs office and we look forward to having them open their doors this weekend. This is also a great opportunity to remind our dancers to not pass anyone on the stairwell and to make sure that we are entering the building one by one.
Guest Instructors for Company & Intensive Program
Our Company & Intensive Dancers are looking forward to working with two guest instructors in the month of February. We are very excited to welcome hip hop instructor Francis Aranton and CAD alumni, Sammie Denham, to the studio. This will surely be an inspiring opportunity for our senior dancers.
Parent Viewing
We know that many of our students and parents are missing the opportunity to have parent viewing this year. We will be popping into each class to take short video clips of our dancers. These will be emailed to each class so you may have a sneak peek into what your dancers have been up to. These clips will be filmed and sent at the beginning of March.
Spring Break
Please be reminded that Spring Break is also approaching. The studio will be closed from March 13th to March 28th. Examination coaching will take place during this time, a separate email will be sent if this applies to your child.
