Great news! We are online!
Lesson plans including videos for every student in every class will be online. We will deliver these classes via Google Drive. The lesson will be sent to you by email, and there will be a file/link for you to open and view.
If you need to ask questions or would like to send us a video of you doing something from the class, just respond by email to the studio address (firstname.lastname@example.org). This will enable your teacher to give you feed back.
We feel that this is the most convenient and beneficial (and easiest) method for both students and teachers alike. By conducting classes this way, you are able to view them at any time, and at your convenience.
Singing classes and private dance lessons will be conducted on a 1 to 1 basis. You will all be informed as to how and when these will take place to suit both you and your teacher.
Senior exam students, we are also able to connect for any live tuition via ZOOM. Again this is a 1 on 1 basis.
We understand that this is a difficult time for us all, but if we work together I am sure we can make this work!
As you are aware, these classes will be taking place at your home, so can you please ensure that there is enough space and there is no hindrance of furniture, rugs, etc, as we wish to avoid any accidents/injuries. Any exercises or combinations that I give the student will be “on the spot”, so there will be no need for them to travel in any direction.
If you are worried about anything, please give me a call.
Dear valued families of Dance Encore Performing Arts Studio
I do hope that you are well and are in good health as the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) makes its way through our beautiful country, states and local communities.
Firstly, I want to extend my sheer gratitude to our amazing families who have been working alongside us at this worrying time. The compliance, compassion, support and cooperation has been overwhelming, and for that we cannot thank you enough.
It is with great sadness, in light of recent instructions from our Government that non-essential services are to cease trade. Therefore, Dance Encore Performing Arts Studio will be ceasing operation effective Monday March 23.
Despite the love that I have for dance, our students and studio, the health and safety of our families and staff is of sheer importance to myself and is not something I would ever take lightly.
Dance Encore Performing Arts Studio will be closed until further notice. Our doors will reopen when we have clear instruction that non-essential activities can recommence trade, and when we feel it is safe for our students to return to their happy place.
I know that Dance Encore Performing Arts Studio is home to the most supportive, kind and caring dance parents/carers that I have ever encountered. I know you will all continue to support our small family business throughout this difficult time.
My ethos has always been, and always will be “put the children first”. I ask that we continue to do so in adapting to any measures, such as online learning, live classes from home etc. that we deem to be the new norm for the upcoming weeks, potentially months, in this uncertain time. I am presently in consultation with my teachers, to implement on line classes (you all know how I struggle with computer technology! Lol).
As always, our communication with our valued families will be maintained and can assure you that we will keep you well informed of any studio updates over the coming weeks. Please ensure that you are a member of the Dance Encore Performing Arts Studio Student Central our closed parent/carer Facebook Group to keep abreast with additional information.
I know that all families will be onboard and support my decision, as we all have the children’s safety, health and best interest at heart. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the coming weeks and the merge of in-studio classes to the virtual experience, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
As always, I am here to help, support and answer any questions that you may have.
Please stay safe and in good health.
Welcome to Dance Encore
Here at Dance Encore we take pride and pleasure in teaching budding dancers, singers, actors and acrobats.
Our fully trained professional teaching staff, under the guidance of Principal Miss Lesley Scott, provide tuition in classes ranging from Pre-schoolers and Beginners to Junior, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
There are a range of classes covering Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, Singing, Drama and Musical Theatre – all conducted in a fun-filled atmosphere and casual approach, but at the same time the student will acquire confidence and discipline through our highly skilled teaching staff.
Each year we present 3 concerts, namely: The Mid Year Showcase for Drama, Singing and Musical Theatre students; The Junior Concert for our younger grades; and our end of year production held in December at the Seymour Centre, showcasing the talents of all our students in every genre.
We are also proud to be the official location in Bexley of “Ready Set Dance” – an ideal introduction to everything that is “Dance” especially formulated for Pre-schoolers, aged 2-6 years.
For those wishing to pursue an amateur or professional career in the Performing Arts or a teaching career through the “Australasian Dance Association” (ADA) there are examination classes which will give you the necessary accreditation.
At the end of Terms 1 and 2, we invite parents and carers to come along to classes and see the progression of their child.
Reasonable fees are on offer for all classes with attractive discounts for term payments. Private tuition is available by appointment only.
For more information please do not hesitate to contact our office on 9587 4451 or email: email@example.com.
