What Tiny Shining Starz we have at Stepnout. Until 2019…

We did it! Concert season is officially over at Stepnout Performing Arts. A huge congratulations to all our Preschoolers that took part in our Shining Starz concert last Saturday. They were amazing! Liz and staff were all very proud of the way that all our tiny dancers performed on stage and behaved in the dressing rooms. It’s a very exciting day for all our Preschoolers and also quite daunting to get up on stage in front of so many people. Hopefully, they will always remember these precious beginnings of their performing lives.

Thanks to the staff and our student teachers that assisted both at the rehearsal and on the day. You were a great help. A huge thanks to our parent helpers – your assistance is invaluable and you are part of what makes the occasion special. Thanks to the Dads that took up the challenge. You all danced brilliantly and your children loved dancing on stage with you. The audience was wonderful. Big loud cheers and claps for every class. It really makes a difference to a performance when the crowd goes wild.

And that’s a wrap…2018 at Stepnout is done and dusted. Our party week has been huge and lots of fun. A huge thanks from all the teachers and staff for the gifts, although completely unnecessary as it is our pleasure to teach your children! They bring the best out in us and make us shine. We love what we do.
