END OF YEAR SHOW 1

KEEP SCROLLING TO READ THROUGH OUR WHOLE PROGRAM

Principal's Message

From studio, to online learning and back to the studio, it has been a whirlwind of change for everyone this year. The resilience and adaptability shown by our teachers and students has been amazing and we are so pleased we actually got here today, live on stage performing for our wonderful audience.

Our highlight this year was the determination and commitment of our Dare To Shine students and parents to continue with classes even if it meant online learning and transforming the lounge room into a dance space. Our biggest disappointment was the cancellation of our Disneyland performance and missing out on our amazing trip. We look forward to rebooking our trip for 2022.

We are all eager to get back into routine next year and providing fresh, new and exciting lessons for our students.

We thank our Dare To Shine community for their patience and support this year with our End of Year show, especially as it was not confirmed until mid October giving us less than 8 weeks to organise it all. We had to deal with delivery delays, costume malfunctions and COVID restrictions, but we made it and are ecstatic our students didn't miss out on performing in front of a live audience this year.

A BIG thank you to our parents Cherie Green, Kathy Frousalias, Lucy Xenos and Dianne Panagopoulos that have assisted us throughout the year at competitions and at the show today. Your help is invaluable and we greatly appreciate your dedication.


Last but not least a huge thank you to teaching and office staff for their dedication and amazing work ethic and always caring above and beyond the call of duty.
