A Note from Alex

Welcome back to Elevation Dance Studios!

As I reflect on what was a whirlwind ending to 2018, I can’t help but be absolutely blown away by the creativity, inspiration, community spirit, achievements and pure talent that was presented throughout term 4. Both our Junior and Senior Schools performed with tremendous spirit in our end of year productions, as always I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. Our VCE Dance students absolutely smashed it out of the park with an average of A+ grades for their units 1,2, & 3,4 composition solos and as a result gained invitations to audition for Top Acts. Finally, we said goodbye to a collection of extremely talented and driven senior students, some of which have now gone on to study full time dance at institutes such as New Zealand School of Dance, Victorian College of the Arts and Transit. We are beyond proud of these students and wish them the absolute best in their new adventures.

2019 is gearing up to be our biggest year yet. Besides our annual Mid Year and End of Year productions, we have a string of in-house performances, presentations classes, RAD exams, holiday workshops and classes with special guest artists and choreographers.

If you were kind enough to donate your old towels to help save us from the flooding that occurred during the Senior Concert (if you want to hear the whole hilarious story, simply ask) I have cleaned them and they are now ready for pick up.

Please take the time to review our 2019 Uniform and School Policies, as these have changed since last year. Please see links below.

I am so excited to get back into the studio to welcome back new and old families for an amazing year of dance, joy and inspiration. As always if you have any questions please don’t hesitate in sending me an email, otherwise I look forward to seeing you around the studio.



Please be sure to take the time to look at our uniform list which has been updated to include the additional 2019 classes.
