Hey There,
A thought,
"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

Wow! We are all exhausted but just had to pass on my congratulations to yet another wonderful production by Stepping Out kids yesterday! We were blown away and I even got to watch everything on the monitor! ( I cried and my "A New Day Has Come" girls- you made me weep!!) Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou everyone for so many magical moments! Just loved it all! "Candle in the Wind" was sublime and all of our Tiny Tots- you are so special!The Forbes students just shone- you guys so deserve to be seen on that amazing stage as you are such classy performers! It was especially gratifying to watch Miss Emma and Miss Jacinta watching you! They were so proud and rightfully so!Miss Leesa and Miss Rachel are very impressed with their Orange students who in such little time have achieved so much! It is so fantastic for me because I saw you last year and now this year, you have just leapt again into new brilliance!We are so blessed to have so many wonderful families encouraging and supporting our students. You are also very appreciated! There was alot of love in that building yesterday! Big thanks to everyone who travelled from Dubbo and Forbes! I love having you all together and as our finale said "We're All in This Together."

Hey, we are so excited! I was fortunate to go to Orange with my able and gorgeous assistants, Immy and Onny to see Miss Leesa's brilliance in Orange! The Dress Rehearsals were amazing! In what has been a busy year it was so wonderful to see how much the Orange studio has grown and how much the students have developed over the last 12 months with Leesa and Rachel's guidance, encouragement and patience. Costumes looked simply incredible! The theatre is just a dream- I am so jealous that you guys get access to this gorgeous stage but feel very lucky that for the first time ( since Disneyland) our Stepping Out family of Forbes, Dubbo and Orange will tread the same boards in a dazzling production. ( I know we were lucky to have some guest artists in Dubbo representing Orange & Forbes but his ime we will be en masse.) The Forbes students are going to be in raptures getting to dance in this theatre! We are so excited for you all!
Yes, I took pictures at both Orange and Forbes rehearsals ( you beautiful things)
Wait for the slideshow!! WHOO HOO!

We keep on hoping that it is a sign of greatness to come! Costumes are looking unreal and the enthusiasm was infectious! Thankyou so much to all the dancers, Gail, Sonya, mums, dads and teachers for making it such a relaxed, exiting and inspiring day! I am still pinching myself!I should be rocking in a corner not celebrating ( YET!!) We can't wait! YAY- Dubbo Concert "once Upon A Time" hits the stage Saturday, 6th December at 3pm and I am already in a happily ever after state.
