Welcome to the 2022 year of Dance! We are so excited you have joined us for another fantastic year of dance and we would like to welcome all new and returning families to our JE Family. Please see below for some important information for the year ahead.
JE Dancehouse Families Only Facebook Group
We have a JE Dancehouse Families only Facebook Group. This is a private Facebook group where we post all of our important information and updates. Information will be emailed, however, reminders and other important information will be posted to this page. Please join our group if you have not already done so and remember to turn on notifications so you don’t miss any important updates.
Studio Uniform Shop
We are very fortunate to have our very own studio uniform shop on-site for your convenience. Our shop opening hours during term for 2022 are:
Monday to Friday – 3:00 – 6:00 pm
Saturday – 8:30 – 11:00 am
The uniform shop will also be open at the following times throughout January for all your back-to-dance needs:
Saturday 15 January – 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Saturday 22 January – 9:00 – 11:00 am
Saturday 29 January – 9:00 – 11:00
Dance is a discipline and at JE Dancehouse we pride ourselves on our dance ability and presentation. Our uniform is compulsory and is required to be worn by students to each and every class.
For ballet, all girls must have their hair in a bun for each class and for all other dance styles, hair must be tied back so that it is off the face.
Each year our end of year concert is held at the Empire Theatre with two shows – a matinee and evening performance. This year our concert will be held on Saturday 19 November 2022.
Costumes are to be paid for by each individual for each style of dance. For example, if your child does Ballet and Jazz, you are required to purchase two costumes. There is a $60 deposit per costume, which is due on 25 June 2022. Our costumes range from $60 to $85 each and they are yours to keep. More information about the concert and costumes will be provided throughout the year.
For information about Eisteddfod opportunities, please contact Miss Jameille.
