Dear Stepping Out Students & Families,
We trust that you have had a Wonderful Christmas and are enjoying your holidays.  Congratulations on your outstanding performance in our 2014 Concert “IMAGINE. ”  We were so incredibly proud of this production and all of your spectacular efforts.  We can’t wait to see where 2015 will take us.  Thank you so much for the incredible feedback we have received.  Each New Year presents us with so many exciting possibilities and opportunities.  2015 promises to be a fabulous and rewarding year for us all as we welcome new classes and a new teacher, Georgie Pirie to our dynamic faculty.  Our delightful Little Stars Department, incorporating the Angelina Ballerina Academy continues to grow and we are very excited to be able to present you with more opportunities for your little people to learn and shine.  Classes for 2015 will commence on Monday, 9th February. ( we think it is very important that all of our families, students and mouselings have a full week back at school and the rigours of family routines before embarking on after school activities.)

Enrolments for 2015 will take place at our studio, Unit 7/ 74 Mountbatten Drive on Sunday, 18th January, 10am - 2pm and Friday, 23rd January 4-7pm.  We are so looking forward to seeing you all.  If you will not be in town on this day we would ask that you would still indicate your intention to enrol by this date. Enrolment forms will this year be available at our Enrolment Day or online at our website.  Most exciting of all, our new software program allows you to enrol and pay online.  We are also very excited to inform you that we are now working in conjunction with EziDebit to give you even more payment options.

Your enrolment form and payment can be forwarded to us by post to P.O Box 2796.

We ask that your enrolment fee of $25 per individual or $30 per family is paid on Enrolment Day to secure your place.  We will also be offering a 10% Early Bird Discount for any student wishing to pay their Term 1 fees at our Enrolment Days.  Your receipt will be issued to you at Enrolment for your Term’s fees.

The Timetable for 2015 is now on our website . We are also asking for students to indicate interest in Eisteddfod participation by this date.  If you are interested in being involved in Solo or Troupe work please ensure that you let the faculty know at Enrolment.  We are hoping to offer Performance groups for all ages across all dance styles.  We strongly encourage our students to consider being a part of an Eisteddfod Performance Group in 2015 as this provides lots of fabulous opportunities for students to develop their skills, form friendships and have FUN.  Private Lessons are available during the summer holidays.  Please contact Rikki on 041 3361724 if you would like an early start to your routines for the year.  Classes for 2014 include Classical Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Stretch, Tap, Little Stars Ballet & Jazz( we can not rave enough about the wonder of the Angelina Ballerina Programme- more classes will open during the week and during day time slots with interest so please indicate your most ideal time so we can see if we can cater to it) Performance, Modern/Contemporary & Pointe. WE ARE SUPER EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE ADDITION OF NEW STAFF ALSO MEANS WE ARE ABLE TO OFFER MORE CLASSES AND THAT DRAMA IS BEING ADDED TO OUR CURRICULUM IN 2015.  We will also have a BOYS ONLY class and age specific classes for our Tiny Tots curriculum.
