NOTE FROM ALEX: 

Welcome back everyone, I hope you have all had a tremendous Easter break and got some well deserved R&R. As I look back over everything we achieved during term 1, a giant smile splashes across my face. We settled into the new Fitzroy North location seamlessly, performed at the Lee St. Fete, welcomed many new faces to the dance studio, had two incredible guest artists teach our company class (Rachael Ward and Amber McCartney), honed in on our technique and explored new and inspiring movement pathways. Term 2 is set to be a big one in the lead up to our Mid Year Showcase, so please refer to this newsletter as your Elevation Dance Studios Term 2 guide.

Over the past term our extremely talented VCE dance and Choreogrpahy students have been working on generating, crafting and consolidating solos, duets, trios and small performance works.
