Dear parents of private lessons student


Just a further confirmation that Private Lessons are STILL GOING AHEAD - all week at the studio.  


* We continue these lessons operate under our previous hygiene regime 

* Teachers will still not be touching students for corrections 

* Private lessons will conclude for Term 1 at the end of this week and continue online for Term 2 if we are unable to operate at the studio

* Solo times listed below


We have been advised of the following information 

- A number of solo competitions will be running online competitions - more information to come (includes dance your solo from home sections)

- Solo students are also welcome to use private lesson time to prepare for exam work if relevant (Ballet and Tap)


Kind regards


Tamara Davidson



Please note that Miss Stacey’s Saturday private lessons will be taken by Miss Tamara Taylor as Miss Stacey is still in isolation due to government regulations after returning from Bali on the weekend. She does not have Covid 19 but is following regulations.

A decision on face to face lessons versions online private lessons for Term 2 will be made closer to the start of term. We have capacity to do both or a combination of both - dependent on the situation at the time and parents preference and teachers preference.   With the constantly changing government regulations at the moment we will delay that decision til closer to Term 2 start date of 14th April.  All private dance lessons will continue in Term 2 either at the studio in person or online. 


Solo students should also be aiming to compete at AT LEAST 3 competitions in the 2nd half of the year August, September and October.

  • AT THIS STAGE - Solo lessons will also continue at the ADV studio in person unless we become unable to.

  • If parents would prefer their dancer stays isolated then they can choose to have their solo lesson online.

  • We have at least 10 student on our waiting list for solo lesson so if a family chooses to give their solo lesson up in Term 2 this will be handed permanently to a waiting student for the year.

  • Now is not a great time to source costumes as a lot of costume places have closed temporarily. Miss Tamara D will source options during the holiday period.
