Term 2 is well underway and things are going nicely with students working hard and progressing well. There have quite a few people away due to illness. It is that time of year I’m afraid and I do hope the winter bugs skip your family.
Marian Away Last 2 Weeks of This Term
I am very excited that I am travelling to the UK to visit family and I will be away for the last two weeks of this term. My classes will run as normal with substitute teachers so you won’t miss out on your class. Most of you know that my daughter and long term Step Beyond Studios contemporary tutor, Grace Woollett is on her O.E. and is currently in London so I am very excited to be able to see her. I will be back in time for the start of term 3.
The website has been updated with the term 3 timetable and fees.

Term 2 Sharing Sessions
Family and friends are warmly invited to come and watch classes in our sharing sessions which will take place towards the end of this term. The students will demonstrate their classwork and this will give you an idea of how they are progressing so far this year. This term the classes do not combine – each class runs individually at the normal time.
Because I am heading off overseas my classes will have sharing sessions before I go – the week commencing 19th June. All other classes will have sharing sessions the last week of term 2 the week commencing 7th August. The sharing session timetable is therefore as follows:

New email address for Marian and Step Beyond Studios
Recently I have been having trouble with emails and frequently my emails sent to those of you on my email list have been bouncing back. This has made it very difficult for me to communicate important news with you all.

Annual Show Rehearsals Start in Term 3
In term 3 we will start working towards our annual show and classes will start learning show dances. Please try to come to your class every week unless you are unwell as it is very frustrating and confusing if people are missing.
We are creating a wonderful new ballet story and all our ballet and contemporary students will perform in this dance story.
Annual Show Details:
Venue: Whangaparaoa College Theatre.
Saturday 4th November: Rehearsals at the theatre during the day
Sunday 5th November: Performances at 11am and 4pm. All students perform in both shows.
Costumes: If you are able to help with sewing costumes please let me know. Even simple hand sewing jobs will be available. Many hands make light work!
Happy dancing everyone!
