MY CHILD INTERVIEWS TERM 4
In term 4 we offer My Child interviews to all interested parents. These zoom interviews are optional but are a great way to ask any questions you may have or receive feedback on your dancers progress and receive recommendations for 2024 classes. My Child interviews take place with our Principal Tamara Davidson or Studio Manager Kylie Fenelon or Classical Academy Director Hayley Arundle. Further information and how to book in to an interview will be sent out to all families by email during October.
2024 TIMETABLE & ENROLMENTS
Each year we aim to release the 2024 timetable by late November. Every year the process of organising the timetable is a huge process for over 370 students and families. Our timetable does change each year as teacher availability changes, class structures vary and class style popularity changes. We appreciate your patience as we work our way through this process.
It is presumed that all current students will continue to 2024 and ADV will enrol them into the same classes they currently take, but in the next level up that they are moved into. Families will be advised in late December once 2024 enrolments have been added by ADV to the customer portals and will able to make changes online via your customer portal to add or drop classes for 2024.
ACADEMY OF DANCE VICTORIA SUCCESS
Accelerate Competition Teams
We are very proud of the great success of our competition teams this season. The groups have all performed exceptionally with many placings in first and second and some of our lyrical routines remain undefeated. The competition students work hard all year perfecting their routines and gain invaluable experience performing on stage and gaining confidence and technical skills. Competition teams are by select invitation, If you are interested in knowing more for 2024 please speak with Miss Tamara on 0425 353 600.
Australian Ballet School Success
A big congratulations to 6 of our Classical Academy students who have been accepted into the Australian Ballet Schools Extension Program in 2024. The Australian Ballet School is the leading elite ballet school in Australia and extremely selective in their offers to talented well trained dancers. We congratulate our dancers who train hard in the ADV Classical Academy Extension program to acheive opportunities such as this. We thank Miss Hayely and the classical academy teachers Miss Iona, Miss Jasmin, Miss Nikki, Miss Charlotte and the ADV Ballet teachers Miss Caitlyn, Miss Vanessa, Miss Ashley, Miss Vanessa, Miss Kylie, Miss Alyssa, Miss Mia for all their work with our ballet dancers.

FAREWELL MISS CAITLYN
We are sad to announce that Term 4 will be Miss Caitlyns final term with ADV (for now). Miss Caitlyn will be taking leave in 2024 to concentrate on her young family and assist her husband in their family business. We will enjoy staying in touch with Miss Caitlyn and see her for some guest teaching! We are thankful for our many wonderful classical ballet teachers at ADV and are very priviledged to have such a prestigious faculty.
