warm welcome to the new families and students who have joined CWDA over
the last few weeks. Students have settled into their new classes and
are working very well during Term one. We are also fast approaching our
first round of watching days for parents.
Several of our senior
ballet students are preparing for their major exams in the upcoming
Sydney session. This will be held from May-June. They are also
attending the RAD Autumn workshops during the school holidays. Good
luck to these hard-working students!
Our new adult’s tap class
on Wednesday evenings is very popular and from all accounts everyone is
loving this class. It’s great to see many parents of existing students
joining in all the fun. Now they can see why their children love
classes over the entire Easter break. This includes Good Friday, Easter
Saturday and Easter Monday. Sunday private lessons will also be
cancelled. Happy Easter to all!
*Anzac Day classes will also be cancelled on Wednesday 25th April.
Please note that classes continue throughout all school holidays, except for the Christmas holidays.

Uniform and Grooming –
I’d like to request that parents please ensure your child has the
correct uniform. New students are given a grace period of a few weeks
before purchasing the uniform. All students also need to have hair that
is tied up and off their face. Ballet students must wear hair in a bun
with fringes pinned back. Students are also required to wear dance
shoes for class.
If ordering new uniform items such as jackets,
shorts, crop tops and t-shirts please place the order with Nicole
Angell (Caitlin’s mum). Further ordering information is on our Facebook
page. Nicole’s phone number is: - 0410 531 912. A very big thank you to
Nicole for all her help with the ordering of these uniforms!

I’d like to remind everyone that under no
circumstance is there is to be any food brought into the waiting room
or studio. Food is to be eaten outside before entering the studio.

building. This also includes soft drinks and slushies, etc. Water is
the only drink to be brought to class.
Concert and rehearsal dates:-
Dress rehearsal and photo day - Sunday 18th November
Theatre rehearsal - Wednesday 28th November 8.30-3pm

realise these dates are a long way off but it will help parents to keep
these days free. All students participating in the concert must attend
both compulsory rehearsal days -including the theatre rehearsal. This
will allow parents time to arrange work rosters or someone to drive
their child to and from the rehearsal.
I hope you all enjoy the upcoming watching days!

Flight Dance Supplies (Tuggerah), Erina Danzwear; or Dance Stuff (East
Gosford). Please note that pink leather ballet shoes must be the Bloch
brand and split-sole are preferred. Please do not purchase other brands
as they are not an accepted part of our uniform.

New Uniform Items:
Duckies are now able to make to order new long trackpants to match our
jackets. They will be made from the same fabric as the jackets and are
ideal for colder weather and for eisteddfods. These long pants will
only be made to order, so please allow sufficient time when ordering
for competitions and before winter. All soloists are expected to wear
these pants and jackets when representing our school.
The concert in 2018 will be held at The Art House theatre at Wyong on
Sunday 2nd December. Please mark this date in your calendar.
Please ensure you’ve read the new timetable for 2018. There are some
slight changes for this year, including the introduction of a Boys Hip
Hop class. We’d love to encourage any interested boys to try a couple
of classes to see if they like hip hop. No previous experience is
necessary. Please let us know if interested.
I’d like to
encourage our jazz and tap students to consider taking ballet classes.
To be a serious dancer, ballet is an essential tool in gaining the
necessary technique for all other dance styles. It also teaches poise,
good posture and self-discipline, all valuable assets to have in life.
CWDA offers private lessons to students for solos, duos and trios. We
believe students benefit from private lessons as they receive
individual attention, gain extra confidence and increase their ability,
skills and performance qualities. Students MUST do weekly classes to be
eligible for private lessons.
Please remember to keep the
waiting room noise to a minimum this year, as the noise is a
distraction to teachers and students. Also there is to be no food
brought into the waiting room at any time, this includes drinks and
slushies. Students are asked to bring only water to class.
The following are a few points to remember for those new to the school:-
1. Please park at rear of the studio at all times (main studio).
Parents are asked not to wait upstairs while lessons are in progress.
We need to keep noise to a minimum, so as not to disrupt lessons (main
3. Watching days for parents are at the end of term one and
two. Please watch the notice board and newsletters for these dates.
There are no watching days in terms 3 or 4, as we prepare for the exams
4. All fees must be paid up to date at all times. Please put all fees in an envelope with name and date.
5. Fees are payable even if your child is absent.
We love to discuss your child's progress. But please realise we have
the next class to begin and need to keep these discussions brief.
All siblings of students must be supervised by their parents at all
times when in the waiting room (main studio). Please keep them off the
stairs, away from windows, toilets, and don’t allow them to run around
or slam the doors. Similarly it’s the responsibility of parents to
ensure your child is sitting quietly while waiting for their class to
