    Hi Everyone
    Well it has been a whirlwind getting into our new studios and we are into week 2. Thank you for all your wonderful support and patience as we settle in. 

    STUDIO ALLOCATIONS

    We have settled on studio allocations for most classes and will be updating our timetable on the website and have a timetable up at the studio. 
    There has been some adapting to do regarding the allocations of some studios and we are working towards changes for a few classes and these may not be finalised until the week of April 11th. 

    SATURDAY CONTEMPORARY 12.30PM LEVEL 1 CLASS 

    In all the busyness of last weeks move we forgot to announce our new teacher for contemporary! 
    The lovely Elise May will now be taking this class. Elise brings with her a wealth of experience as a principal dancer with EDC and many years teaching and choreography experience. If you haven't tried contemporary before come and have a go! 
    Elise also also teaches our jazz class on Tuesdays. 

    TAP CLASS FOR BEGINNERS COMMENCING APRIL 15

    We are starting with a daytime class on Fridays from 11 - 12 pm. It will be a casually attended class but email us if you are interested in coming.
    More tap classes to come!
    Cheers

  • Mar 1, 2016
    Hi All
    Just a quick update on the settling in of the new studios...
    Its been a big move in a very short amount of time and the main thing is we have three great studios up and running! 
    As both schools timetables were already in place we are currently working to adjust which class goes into which studio.
    There could be some small adjustments to classes and times (and addition of new classes for instance jazz and tap) so we will let you know as these things happen accordingly.
    There are a lot more exciting things to come - 
    • Next week studio 2 and 3 will be getting air conditioning (plus some windows in studio 3).
    • We will be getting wall mounted barres around the studios - so the free standing barres are temporary.
    • Foyer area decorating - we are working towards a space that will accommodate everyones needs - for instance storage space for bags, change rooms, a kitchenette and access to water.
    It is a big venture and there may be some small hiccups along the way but we are aiming for a wonderful dance space for all!

    We ask everyone to be patient while we transition into our new space! 

    Best wishes

    Hi Everyone
    We had such a wonderful positive start to the week on Monday with a great class with David McAllister. It was lovely to see so many inspired and happy dancers!
    So now to the big week ahead -  an update on how the new studios are coming along...
    We had a great day painting on Sunday so many thanks to the volunteers who could make it. We could not have got that done without you. 
    So the sprung floors are going in this week. Following that will be mirrors and barres - no matter what we will have studios to dance in next week. Finishing touches will be coming after we have moved in...
    We have a few blokes lined up for (heavy) tarkett lifting on Sunday - we would love a few more helping hands if there are any on offer! The plan is to load up 9.30am Sunday morning.
    Please note -
     
    NEW BANKING DETAILS
    We are now a registered company and have a new bank account so please update your records. 

    2ballerinas Pty Ltd

    BSB: 124001

    Acct: 22434925

    It's ok if you use the old bank details by mistake as we will be keeping that account open for a while longer to allow for the crossover.
    Well that's all for now!
    Cheers

    Its a very busy time ahead with the move to the new studios and we would love some help with painting and moving if anyone is able to!

    Just email us if you would like to help out.

    SUNDAY 21ST FEBRUARY PAINTING THE STUDIO WALLS 

    We will be starting at 7am so come and join anytime. Its going to be mostly using rollers - we have a lot of surface to cover (3 studios walls!) and we only have Sunday day to do it as the following day the flooring starts to go down. 

    We will be supplying some rollers, trays and brushes but if you have your own lying around please bring. 

    81 Mina Parade Newmarket - go down left side of building next to Tiller Cafe to building at rear.

    OUR MOVING DAY - SUNDAY 28TH FEBRUARY (9.30am) - PEOPLE POWER REQUIRED!

    We are looking for some strong people to assist us with loading and unloading a truck with tarkett rolls and barres.

    Please let us know if you know anyone that can help. We will be doing this at 9.30 am. 

    Please note that the Sunday classes on 28th February are cancelled.

    Cheers

    Hi everyone,

    We are excited to announce a special workshop coming up on Sunday April 19th:

    Fitball for Ballet - Introduction Workshop with Sarah Rowles

    The workshop is based on Marie Walton-Mahon's Progressing Ballet Technique, and has been adapted by Sarah especially for adults. The first hour will be fit ball exercises, followed by a one hour ballet class suitable for all levels of experience, so that you can feel the muscles you will have activated. These exercises are specifically geared towards improving your dance technique, control and awareness of turnout, proper use of feet etc.

    To see what the workshop is based on have a look at - http://www.progressingballettechnique.com/

    Wear clothing that leaves your calves and feet bare and bring your ballet shoes.

    You will need to bring a fitball. There are various sizes depending on your height, ideally you should be able to sit on the ball with your thighs horizontal to the floor.

    Date: 19th April
    Time: 10 – 12pm
    Cost: $40
    Venue: Lizzie St Hall

    Email us at info@2ballerinas to reserve your place.

    Cheers
