Here are some of my darlings from Future Stars Classes! They certainly ensure entertainment for me every week with their wonderful insights and delightful ways. We started our Concert Dance on Tuesday and they are doing so well that I even misted over. Concert Time is certainly the best time of the year and Miss Emma and I have had an absolute ball getting stuck into all our routines and concepts this week! Well Done to everyone........you are already looking AMAZING! Many a magic moment to come. Have a great term of dancing and stay tuned to the blog- it becomes like my agony aunt in the lead up to Concert. All the thrills and spills will be coming your way! And, hey, how great is this weather and Daylight savings! I feel so motivated!!

Congratulations to Paris Burns who won her Classical Solo, her Modern Solo, 3rd in her Demi Character and 2nd in her Contemporary Solo. Paris also received the highest pointscore for her Modern and was the recipient of the trophy for "Most Memorable Choreography."As always, we are very proud of your success!
Thankyou to all the dancers and families who so generously supported "Girls Day In" Pink Ribbon luncheon in Dubbo today. It was so wonderful to see your special talents shining for such a worthwhile cause.

Hope you are all having a super holiday and recharging for our fabulous Term 4 of Concert Production! Thankyou to everyone for your organisation thus far! Great to see so many of you at Costume Measurements and paying your deposits! This will ensure that you are all looking gorgeous for Dress Rehearsals, Photography and of course, THE BIG DAY! Most routines are well under way ( hope you are practising in holidays!!) and Miss Emma and I are feeling super INSPIRED! I know we say this every year but I really feel like its going to be the best one yet (fingers crossed!) Sonya is churning through costume designs and is off on her buying trip next week.
There are some great movies out for all dance enthusiasts! FAME & MAO's LAST DANCER! I am looking forward to seeing them both. Li Cunxin's story is an especially powerful one. My kids have the picture book "The Peasant Prince" and it has many important messages about the power of believing in yourself (plus incredible illustrations!)
