Save The Date

Each year we space out our opening and finale rehearsals throughout the year. This aims to make it easier for our seniors with part time jobs who find it difficult to request consecutive weekend off at the end of the year. There will be one each in term 2 and term 3.  Saturday 21nd June is our 1st Opening/ Finale Rehearsal. Dance Gallery dancers will only be required for 2 ½ hours commencing AFTER midday on this day. The rehearsal will be on the stage at Lake Macquarie Performing Arts Centre at Warners Bay. This is a compulsory rehearsal. A specific time table will be sent out in 1 week of term 2

Out of Uniform/Dress Up Day

In the last week of term 1 we have our annual Cancer Council Dress up week. This mean that dancers can wear ANYTHING they want to class, old costumes, superhero out fits, crazy hair, whatever they want – be as imaginative as you like!  This is an event that we run annually for a Charity that is very close to our hearts, the Cancer Council.  We are asking our families for a gold coin donation during this week; ALL proceeds will be donated to the Cancer Council.

Uniforms

All Dance Gallery dancers should now have their FREE leotard from registration. Please call the office if you have missed out on your leotard. Each dancer enrolled at The Dance Gallery is required to wear their uniform to class, along with their hair tied neatly back from their face. There are dance pants, wash and wear singlets, dance singlets, shorts and hoodies available from the studio.

Please place all uniform orders by calling the office.

After the Easter break we have another 2 weeks of classes. In the last week of term we have decided to have a dress up week. This means that dancers can wear ANYTHING they want to class, old costumes, superhero out fits, whatever – be imaginative as you like! If you don’t want to dress up – no problem, a crazy hairdo would be great. This is an event that we are organising for a Charity that is very close to our hearts, the Cancer Council. We are asking our families for a gold coin donation during this week. ALL proceeds will be going back to the Cancer Council. So please bring a donation for the Cancer Council regardless of how you choose to dress for class in this week!
