ACADEMY OF DANCE VICTORIA PRESCHOOL DANCERS
The ADV Ready Set Dance and Petite Ballet uniform is an important part of our preschoolers dance training.
The correct uniform assists the teachers when the students need to be corrected and is also an important part of the dance discipline.
Having the correct dance shoes is also very important, for example, Tap shoes are needed to make the correct sounds the children are learning in all the different tap steps.
Imagine trying to play a tennis game with a squash racquet…..this is the same as trying to do tap in the wrong shoes. Tap shoes are needed for tap all Ready Set Dance classes.

TERM 1 PRESCHOOL CALENDAR
Attached to this email is our Term 1 Pre School Calendar which was posted on our studio members Facebook group earlier on. A reminder that there are no classes on Monday due to the public holiday, however classes do run this Saturday.
A reminder that once enrolled there is a set uniform required for all Ready Set Dance and Petite Ballet Classes for both males and females. Please ensure you assist your dancer by purchasing the correct uniform items. Ready Set Move classes do not require uniform. We encourage all female dancers to have their hair up in a neat hairstyle.
END OF YEAR PERFORMANCE
All our Pre-School dancers are involved in a lovely stage performance in early December. The students wear costumes provided by ADV and showcase the dancing they have learnt with the help of some Senior ADV Dance students on stage. The performances are short and a really fun celebration of our youngest students achievements and a culmination of a year of learning. All children are only involved in one morning performance of 1.5 hours, exact date and time will be confirmed in Term 3. Please keep the following dates free.
Saturday 3rd December
