1ST TERM 2021
Dear Parents and Pupils,
Wishing you all a wonderful 2021 and looking forward to seeing you all again from Saturday the 30th of January when the Lorraine studio will officially open for the first term of 2021. Jeffreys Bay studio will be opening on Monday the 25th of January.
We will still be dancing in masks / covid regulations for the foreseeable future, so please don’t leave it at home or you won’t be allowed to dance.
Timetables for the first term are on the website at https://dancedynamicspe.com but are still subject to change, so please keep an eye on the timetable for the next few weeks until everyone gets settled.
Elements 2020 And Photos
If you would like to order a copy of the concert, it will be available on a flash USB drive for R170 so please place the cash in a marked envelope with your name on it in the studio letterbox or give it to your teacher. All DVD orders will be placed in a draw to win a hamper of studio merchandise.
Lorraine: Photos will be on display in the studio. If you would like to order, please get an order form from your teacher.
Jeffreys Bay: Orders have already been emailed to the parents to avoid any crowding in the studio as we do not have a separate viewing portal.
The closing date for orders of DVD’s and Photographs is the 15th of March 2021.
If you have not done so already, please return all outstanding costumes.
If you would like any Dance Dynamics Merchandise, you can see the list that will be updated from time to time on our website at https://dancedynamicspe.com/studio-merch. Please take note of the closing dates for orders.
Acro Implementation Class:
We will be introducing Acro Dance to the studio this year at the Lorraine Studio.
This dance style is designed to complement your existing dance skills by building up strength, flexibility, and at the same time learning some acrobatic tricks. We will introduce more classes down the line, but for now, we will start with one on a Saturday Morning in Lorraine. We will only be taking ten students into the class and for this first implementation class and students must be ten years or older. We will also only be taking students from our own studio who are already doing one of the other dance forms for this first junior course.
Later in the year, we will introduce classes for younger students. You can read more about what Acro is all about on our website at https://dancedynamicspe.com/what-is-the-difference-between-acro-and-gymnastics
If you need to send us an email, please do not reply or send or reply to this email address, as WE DO NOT GET THESE.
Please contact us at the email addresses below:
If you would like to speak to your teacher, please phone during the mornings only, as we teach all afternoon and well into the evenings. If you leave a message on our phones we will get back to you as soon as we can.
You will by now have received the fee structure for 2021. You have the option of paying each month or per term in advance.
Regardless of your choice of payment, you will get an invoice on the 1st of each month so you can check whether you are in debit or credit.
If there is a minus sign in front of the balance, it means that you are in credit, so in other words, you don’t need to pay.
Please let us know timeously if you find any errors on your accounts, as it is more difficult/time-consuming to rectify errors months down the line!
Please notify us if any of your details change, ie. address, email address, phone numbers, etc.
The Year Ahead:
In order to plan accordingly, these are the extra optional costs for the year over and above normal class fees:-
RAD Ballet Exams – Closing date for entries normally around 20 March 2021, but things could change this year.
Talent Africa – If you want to enter a solo you need to go online and enter yourselves at https://talentafrica.co.za
Friendly City Dance Festival
AIDT Modern/Hip-Hop Exams
ADTA Tests (November if anyone ready the first year)
Please come to class dressed to dance. In other words for ballet and modern you need to wear a leotard/unitard, tights and no baggy shirts are allowed. Hair should always be neatly and securely tied up and preferably in a bun.
No eating is allowed in the studio as we cannot dance on messy floors.
Students, please switch off your cell phones before attending classes. In this way, all your attention will be focused – ie. On your Dancing!
It is up to the students to ensure that they are adequately warmed up before class, so it is advisable to arrive at least ten minutes before the class to ensure that this happens. This is to avoid injury and applies to all of the dancers of eight years and older.
The Studio will close for the April holidays after lessons on Friday the 20th of March.
Yours in dancing
Carrie, Michel, and Shaugneen
