News and Events for 2021
Well done to some of our Grade 4 students who participated in a local Teacher's teaching exam in May Cecchetti examination session. They acted as her 'class' for the purposes of the exam and worked hard and danced with aplomb. It was great that they were able to take part and have this special event to look forward to during Term 1.
If you are visiting the Faulconbridge Health Centre or the Balance Health Clinic Springwood look out for our new digital advertisements being shown on the screen above the sanitising stations. Beautiful photos of some of our gorgeous students taken by Vision House Photography from some of our Photo Days.
2021 times are proving almost as confusing as those for last year towards the end of Term 2!
Unfortunately, due to the current lockdown in Greater Sydney the long looked-forward-to Cecchetti Winter School and Cecchetti Dance Day have had to be cancelled! Registration fees paid to go to Winter School and Dance Day will be refunded by Cecchetti Ballet.
The entries for the 'virtual' Cecchetti Choreographic Competition might be put back a little. Entries were due to be in by 11th July but with many students wanting to rehearse and practice and film their entries in their own studios many Cecchetti teachers have made the request to delay the entry date. The event will go ahead but hopefully giving students time to complete and practice their entries after lockdown ceases.
Information on the Exams Orientations for Grades 4, 5 and 6 has been sent out. Hopefully the Main exam session and these Orientations will go ahead but a lot depends on whether the lockdown is extended or not. I will keep you all posted!
The Studio exam session has been booked for Friday 8th October 2021. All being well this will go ahead as planned. Further information will be sent out later in Term 3. Please put this studio exam date in your diary NOW!
Fingers crossed that we will have a Concert this year. The date booked is Saturday 11th December at Springwood High School. Please add this date to your diaries now and be aware that the Dress Rehearsal will be organised for Sunday afternoon 28th November and additional rehearsals will be held running up to Concert date.
Enrolments and re-enrolments for 2021 are now closed. Students may continue to enrol in classes for 2021 up until Term 3 but after that please wait until the following year. Please telephone Miss Rosalind or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enrolment day is usually the last Saturday in January - 10am-12noon - at the Studio in Faulconbridge. Look out for our adverts! 2022 Enrolment day is Saturday 29th January. Classes will recommence from Tuesday 1st February, 2022.
Students currently enrolled at the school will be emailed re-enrolment information during January.
News and Events for 2020
Well, we survived 2020! The doors of the studio closed in March and just a couple of days later we went 'online' for the remainder of Term 1 and all of Term 2. Our studios re-opened, in person, from Term 3 2020 and it was great to get back to classes in the studio. In Term 4 we had our ballet exam day on Friday 6th November and the year ended with the six Mini Concerts held on Saturday 12th December and Monday 14th December. It was a year to remember!
All levels of students were able to undertake their ballet exams at the Studio exam session in 2020. There was no Main session held in the city. On Friday 6th November 2020 students from Primary level right through to Intermediate level presented their examination. The day went very successfully and thank you to all those parents and students who abided by the restrictions we had to have in place. Thank you too to Debbie and Scarlett who acted as our ushers and help for the session. The results were very successful. Our Intermediate and Dance Spectrum Majors students did particularly well in spite of the difficulty in preparing for exams under 2020 conditions!
Main Cecchetti Exam sessions
These are usually scheduled for May and September each year. Both the May and September sessions for 2020 had to be cancelled.
Performance Groups resumed although the usual performances and eisteddfods were not held. Students worked towards a presentation at the end of the year for parents.
T-shirts There are T-shirts for all students. I have put an order form on the website if you want to print it out and bring with you to the next class. Sample sizes are available to try on. All students in Contemporary and Jazz classes are expected to purchase them as part of the uniform to wear in class.
