Stepnout Performing Arts Term 1 Fun!April 13, 2018
Wow! What a term we have had! I can’t believe we are at the end of our Autumn holidays. Before we know it Santa will be on our doorstep. Hehe!
A warm welcome to our new families this year. We look forward to seeing you at events that we have throughout the year. A big cheerio to our staff. We have a great team this year and can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store. A warm welcome to our new staff starting in Term 2. Stef is back on Wednesdays after a long time away and a big Hi to Emily who joins us on Mondays this term.
2018 is a huge year for the studio & our fearless leader. As many of your know Stepnout Performing Arts is celebrating 20 years. Yes, Liz has been doing this for a lllooonnngggg time. The studio has grown so much since it’s first years to be the dynamic community that you are all part of. As our fearless leader (Liz) will proof read this blog I can’t tell you which milestone she is reaching in May but it’s a big one that you can count on 1 whole hand with a zero after! Happy Birthday Lizzy!
Now to the excitement that has been Term 1. Everyone has settled in beautifully this term and from what we can see is loving their classes. It’s so great to see excited faces heading into class every week. Keep up the great work everybody!
Some of our Senior students took part in a photo shoot at Point Lonsdale Lighthouse. It was a wonderful experience for us all. The girls were a wonderful bunch who took some stunning photos but more importantly supported one another beautifully throughout the day. You will see some photos throughout the year so keep a lookout.
Crazy Hair week was a blast. Thank you so much to everyone who took part. It was wonderful to see the creations and the pride and excitement of the students that took part. We raised $250 to the Leukemia Foundation. A big thanks to everyone who made a donation. We really appreciate your support.
A huge thanks to everyone that attended Weerama this year. The day began very wet and wild but by the time the Parade started the sun was shining brightly and we only had the crazy wind to contend with. An extra special thanks to the families that came down to help decorate the float. It was a wonderful afternoon where friendships were extended and everyone had a great time. I can’t wait to see what we come up with next time. Our Under 10s had their first performance together at Weerama and apart from branches causing havoc they did a great job.
Stepnout was part of Altona Green Primary School Fete. We had toddlers, Kinders, Fairies, Jitterbugs, Acro/Cheer, Senior Hip Hop and our Under 10s all represent the studio brilliantly. Everyone had a great time and supported each other with lots of loud cheering and clapping. Great work everyone!
Suddenly we were in our first parent Watching week for the year. Boy, Term 1 flew past. Our preschoolers all looked gorgeous in their dress-up. We hope the parents that came to watch were very excited by what they saw. Look out Term 2 we are storming in!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break with loved ones. Mine was very special – Easter Bunny even left me a couple of eggs. I knew I was a good girl this year! Our Easter raffle winners are Stella and Sabrina. We hope you enjoyed your yummy treats!
Our Autumn Workshop day was a huge success. A big thanks to the teachers and students that were part of the day. The kids all worked really hard and had a fantastic time. Many of our student teachers helped out throughout the day. Thanks girls. It was wonderful to see you all take part in a great event. Don’t forget our Winter Workshop day is Wednesday 4 July. Book it in now. The kids all have such a wonderful day.
Competition season has begun. Our Under 10s have been part of 2 comps and performed really well. They represented the studio wonderfully and performed beautifully. We can’t wait to see them develop throughout the year. We also had a couple of students perform solos in their first competitions. They both did brilliantly and received stunning results. Great work Alina & Chelsea!
And that’s a wrap. So much has happened in such a short time. Term 2 is steaming on in and has lots of excitement on offer. Have a great term everyone. Until next time …..
