W WOW this year is flying! We thank you all for your support and enthusiasm. Stepping Out has certainly enjoyed a fabulous start to the year and we look forward to what the rest of the year delivers. Classes will conclude for Term 2 on Saturday, July 2nd and resume on Monday, 18th July.
Payments We kindly ask that all Term 2 payments are promptly paid. Late fees have been added to accounts overdue. Please ensure that payments are finalized before the end of term. We have waiting lists in places for most classes and will be offering those to new families if we have not received fees or indication of return before the end of term. Enrolments and payments for Term 3 are also now open. To ensure that your child is enrolled in the correct classes for Term 3 please email Gail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to make any amendments. Office hours are 3.30 – 6.00pm Monday and Tuesday and Saturday 9.30am- 12noon. As our classes are priced at packages per term rather than weeks, your fees will be charged the same for Term 3. Other payment options are direct deposit Macquarie Credit Union, BSB 802 126 A/C 102490.

UNIFORM Though we don’t have strict uniform policies we do ask that our students take pride in their appearance and come dressed looking and feeling like a dancer. Our website has a comprehensive uniform guide and Gail in the office is able to help you with any orders you may need for shoes or attire. We have been absolutely delighted at how our gorgeous students have presented for class and we ask that you keep up the good work. Please ensure hair is tied back from face. We would like everyone to have correct shoes by start of term as it is essential to the development of correct technique and adherence to safe dance practices. We would also ask that all students bring a water bottle to class to stay hydrated.
USA DANCE TOUR 2017 We are super excited to announce that we will be embarking upon a Dance Tour in 2017. This wonderful opportunity is open to all students and their families. Students will perform at Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood Blvd and on board Carnival cruises cruising the Mexican Riviera. Along with the fabulous performance opportunities are many exciting classes and workshops with L.A’s top dance professionals. Having experienced this in 2008 and 2012 we are so thrilled that our students will once again have access to this phenomenal opportunity. We have compiled a fabulous itinerary with our tour company, GLOBAL DANCE TOURS which includes L.A, Anaheim and a 7 night cruise to Mexico. There is also an extension to New York for those students and families wanting a Broadway experience and an amazing adventure in the city that never sleeps. For more information, costings and the itinerary please email email@example.com. We already have a huge amount of interest from our Facebook post and are looking forward to taking the next steps. A representative from our tour company will be hosting an Information Night and Presentation early Term 3 so please register interest NOW so we can keep you in the loop.
ROYAL ACADEMY OF DANCE CLASSICAL BALLET EXAMS Our Ballet exams will be held in September and are open to interested and dedicated students from Pre-Primary to Grade 3. Entries close late July. We will be conducting preparation classes in the July school holidays to ensure students are ready. In most cases students will also require an additional class during Term 3. There will be costs associated for exam entry, pianist fees, additional rehearsals, uniform etc. Please register interest via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can be updated with the relevant information.
There are also holiday workshops with RAD examiners in Orange and Mudgee for those interested, which would be fantastic. Please enquire for further information.
NEWS & EVENTS Please stay in touch with us via our Facebook page. We update it regularly with pictures and news about our students and classes. We also post to our website under Dubbo News so you can always look back through the archives to check on notes or information you may have missed. We have enjoyed enormous success at Dubbo Eisteddfod and love sharing our students triumphs be it in class or on the stage with you.
On behalf of all at Stepping Out Dance Factory we send our very best wishes for a safe and restful holiday period for our students and their families.
Happy Holidays. Thank you for dancing with us in 2016!
