Hi all parents of Industry Team students AND Solo competition students

Just a quick note to say we are still full steam ahead with our competition preparation and this will continue whether it has to be done online or if schools are open term 2 then onsite!



All our troupe competitions and solo competitions are in the 2nd half of the year after the governments estimated 6 month disruption timeline. If the July competition season is interrupted we will replace that with an additional October competition instead (meaning competitions would be August, September, October).

  • All the industry teams are also involved in the big ADV Movie which we will be filming at end of Term 2 or early Term 3 if necessary.

  • Our attendance policy (both for online and onsite) for troupe teams remain the same - if your dancer misses classes for troupe they may be removed from the team or from dances. Dances are always available on our industry team Facebook page. Online classes will also automatically be recorded and sent to all involved for additional practise!

  • All work will be learnt for the Movie in Term 2 classes either in person or online dependent on our chosen approach at the time.

  • Currently the September Royal Melbourne Show in September will still go ahead too but exact details will be available later in the year.

  • So students please keep up the practise and parents ensure your dancer has access to the Facebook video of chorey as well over the holiday break so that we can commence Term 2 without having to revise chorey and waste time going over what has already been taught in Term 1


Can we ask that all parents with students in the classical competition troupes (Fridays 4pm and Fridays 4:30pm) please make sure they join the ADV Industry team page to ensure your dancer can see the choreography videos that they need to rehearse with in their weekly home practise.   


Below is the link to copy and paste into your browser - then request access . 



It’s really important that students involved in the competition group do access the videos and practise before their class each week. 


Welcome to 2020 Industry teams at ADV

We have an awesome year planned and are enjoying seeing everyone’s smiling faces back at the studio this week. Our first event for the industry teams and classical competition teams is our Opening Night event! We have booked out Darkzone in Box Hill and will be playing some laser tag, arcade games and eating pizza together. FUN!! But not just fun!!! We will also be doing some team building, setting team goals, meeting buddies. This event is all our groups from the mini team to our Advanced Team. Please see the attached flyer and below information.

A reminder to all parents to please join the Industry Team Facebook page. This is where we post all the routine choreography that the students need to learn and rehearse along with reminders and important information.

This year instead of having a cabaret and mid year performance ADV is embarking on a very exciting project to film a movie featuring all the Industry Teams and Private Singing School Students. The movie will then have a full premier at Balwyn Cinema in Term 3 which will take the place of our mid year concert. So save the date to get dressed up and walk the red carpet and see your dancer/singer star on the big screen! Due to this project all our industry teams will be doing 2 competition routines instead of 3 this year to allow time to rehearse and learn their movie items and also their Royal Melbourne show items.
