She will teach Elementary and Intermediate classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  On Wednesdays she'll teach an Open Ballet class, focussing on Pointe Work followed by a Repertoire class.

Hilal Dance Workshop

Feet stepping to the earth's heartbeat, body whirling, turning the rotations of planets, stars reflecting in her eyes, the dancer opens her lyrical arms, and enfolds the universe. (anon translated from Arabic)

When?   Friday 30 September, 6.00 - 8.00 pm

Cost?     $40

Contemporary Beginner / Elementary

Philip Piggin would like to announce that the Contemporary Class he teaches at 6.00pm on Mondays is a good class for beginners, as well as those with more experience.

Contemporary Intermediate / Open 

Jamie Winbank doesn't want you to be put off by the word 'Intermediate' which may make you feel it'll be too hard and deter you from coming.  He's opening up his Contemporary Class - now to be called 'Intermediate / Open Contemporary' - so that people will know that anyone can come along. Irrespective of your 'level', individual needs and abilities will be taken care of in a safe, secure, yet challenging way.

NEW start time for Ballet Advanced - Saturdays

The class now starts at 11.30 am - (just 10 minutes later)
