Second Hand Dance Wear – Saturday 28th

The clothing sale organized during Summer School was a great success. Many families were able to pick up inexpensive used supplies, and others get rid of items that no longer fit. We would like to arrange a similar event for this Saturday (September 28th) from 8.45am – 2pm. Bring your items in a zip lock bag this week to the studio to drop off. They must have your name, telephone number and price clearly visible. Items MUST BE COLLECTED at 2pm on Saturday. Any items left at the green room after this time will be donated. PLEASE NOTE: we do not encourage the purchase of used leather ballet shoes. Ballet shoes are designed to mould to the dancer’s foot, therefore a new pair of slippers is not only best for the ‘look’ but also for your child’s feet.

Start up to the New Season

We have enjoyed a wonderful week at the studio getting to know the new faces and welcoming back the old. Those of you still looking for uniform pieces, be sure to check the ‘for sale’ page both here on this website, and on our FaceBook GROUP page https://www.facebook.com/groups/71050184007/. You can request to join the group if you wish. We also have a new Steps Ahead Dance (Education) page https://www.facebook.com/StepsAheadDanceBC.

And so the schedule story goes on….

The dilemma of SD72 changing dismissal times (and the Independent schools not), continues to haunt us. Please take a look at the newly REVISED (again!) schedule and let us know ASAP of any difficulties you may have. It will be, as you can appreciate, impossible to make class times to suite everyone, but we will do out best.
