Lentefees

Well done to Carrie and the girls from Jeffreys Bay, as well as her Humansdorp and Patensie Studios for wowing the crowds this past weekend at the Lentefees at the Nico Malan High School.

Here is a couple of photo’s of them in action.

Here is a list of all the gold awards. Well done! We know the judges, Karen Jooste and Sean Bovim didn’t give out golds easily this year, so if you were lucky enough to get one your performance was extra special.

Ballet Exams – 29th May 2018

Ballet Exams are done and dusted. A rather cold day in Port Elizabeth, so we couldn’t do any of our photographs outside.

Rene Callis came to examine our girls today and thanks to all involved, the day ran smoothly.

Bootcamp 2018An exciting ballet boot camp was hosted during the April holidays by Robin van Wyk and Janet Lindup from Cape Town City Ballet.

Well done to all our students who attended.

Pictured are Chloe Domingo, Marie Louise Strydom, Karla van Rooyen and Einon Doubel.

The children all enjoyed themselves thoroughly and we hope to see more of you there next time.

 

For The Love of Dance 2017

The Winning Table

Because we didn’t have our usual concert to finish off the year in style we did things a bit differently this year.

In Jeffreys Bay, there were two parties hosted for the different age groups.  Please visit our FaceBook page for more pics of those events.

In Lorraine, the dancers entertained us with their own choreography at the Walmer West Primary School.

Each class worked together to choreograph their dances to present.

The audience had their own competition with a table decorating contest, so the atmosphere was most festive.

We were very proud of what all the dancers came up with. Just shows what a little teamwork can do.

Here are some pics of the event.
