A Note from Alex
Welcome back to Term 2!
I am so excited to welcome you all back for another exciting term of dance at Elevation! As I reflect upon term 1, I am left beaming with pride. The energy around the studio was incredible, the levels of commitment, kindness, dedication, and growth that I observed was both heart warming and inspiring. We welcomed 2 new amazing teachers to our dance family, both Paige Pote and Lukas White have fast become beloved instructors, blowing us away with their inspiring choreography and dance classes. We had our first performance for the year, as a small group of students performed at the Carlton North Primary School Fete. Besides the kids absolutely knocking it out of the park with their performance skills, technique and unrelenting energy, audience members were left blown away by the support, friendship and encouragement demonstrated by each student.
After what was the most incredible start to the year, we are now gearing up for a fabulous term 2 filled with numerous events. So here is your go to guide to you navigate your way through the next 10 weeks, plus a few reminders on uniform, policies and merchandise.
I look forward to seeing you in the studio!

Our VCE Dance and Choreography students have been working incredibly hard throughout Term 1 creating technique solos, duos, and trios. We would love to invite our friends and family to an in-formal showing at our studio. This will allow our talented young choreographers the opportunity to debut their works for the first time. If you are interested in attending, please email me, so I can keep tabs on numbers as the space is quite small. Parents and Friends of students involved will get first priority.

The presentation classes are designed to encourage, motivate and reward students for their hard work during terms 1 and 2 and to prepare students for future exams. It is a wonderful opportunity for my students to receive feedback from an external eye, and to provide them with a goal and a sense of achievement. All participants will receive a report and a certificate signed by the examiner. The presentation classes will take place over two Sundays, please refer to the timetable below:
