So very proud of our gang this holidays! We only took two brand new troupes down to Perth Dance Challenge today and out of two troupes we received a first and second placing!!! Judged by the amazing @laurenkateseymour it was such an honour to receive these awards! Each routine was a group of dancers on stage together for the first time (all never danced a troupe together before) and with two very technical and demanding routines which we have only finished less then 2 weeks ago. I'm so proud of what you have all achieved in one term! Your all amazing and I love you all to bits! Thank you for all being so wonderful! #perthdance #perth#perthdancechallenge #mandurahdancer#mandurahdance #mandurah #dtx #dtxdance#dtxdancer #dtxfamily #dtxdancers #dtxstudios#dance #dancer #bunbury #bunburydance#lyricaldance

We have seen our school triple in growth and our professional team double in size in 2015. I'm loving every minute of every day teaching and sharing these wonderful experiences with my not so little family.

WEEK ONE: We saw the commencement of new class start in our newly refreshed studio space. We are loving the new graffiti art, divided studio space, air conditioning and are excitedly awaiting the installation of our new mirrors. To add to the excitement Mr Dane created and designed our new portable ballet barres which we LOVE!!! Which was an unexpected addition to the studio in term one. We are so Blessed. 
We saw classes reach record numbers again this term with our senior classes being exceptionally popular. And in 2015 we have seen our adults classes sky rocket to 15 members. These Ladies have so much talent and enthusiasm its insane what they are achieving.
At the end of week one we were delighted to be invited to be involved in a wonderful charity event Reach Out Family Fun Day down at Hall Park raising money for the Mandurah children's refuge. And while it was hot and I mean HOT everyone had a blast. We enjoyed performing and being apart of such a special day!! Oh and we went viral!! have you seen our jamming video that went viral?
WEEK TWO: Saw the students getting into the swing of things again, classes got their rhythm back again and some of the muscle soreness started to ease. We had our first fundraising chocolates delivery arrive and we began our first official meetings for America in Dec.
WEEK THREE - FIVE: The last few weeks have been an insane blur of craziness including preparations for america, competition choreography under way, concert costume preparation (yes we now have our own official costume designer) and all round hard work and training. In week three we had a visit from Drew Mitchell our most favorite Myotherpist from Trigger Health Mandurah. Drew came in to discuss with our senior girls the importance of looking after your bodies, he trained some trigger therapy with us and then review injuries and body complaints on the girls. It was fabulous and we look forward to having him back next term. We saw the arrival of our newly designed uniforms which are stunning and available for purchase on the website or in the studio for $30.00 each.
WEEK SIX: Well we are now into week six and I have no idea where the time has gone! This week has been the most amazing week of my teaching career. Never in my life have I seen overall improvement in dance technique from every single class and in every single age group. Its one of those moments as a dance teacher you can only ever dream of! We have such an exception bunch of students again this year I cant wait to showcase them in the concert. We have had students nailing quadruple pirouettes, fouette turns into double pirouettes, adults performing split leaps and double turns, junior dances nailing tilts.. I'm so impressed and so grateful to be your their teacher. This weekend we are off to crabfest to work for the council and this week we also see the launch of our new Phone APP.. That's right you heard me an APPLE & ANDRIOD PHONE APP four our existing students and parents. The App is free and downloadable now from the app store. The app was designed to aid all our beloved students and parents to keep well informed in all things to do with the school, competitions and more.. Best part is you now have the timetable at the touch of a button. Check it out now... 
WEEK SEVEN - TEN: We now work very hard to prepare for term two and competitions, lots of rehearsals and new choreography being learnt.. But that's why we love what we do =) We are excited to announce we welcome Lucy Ellis and Courtney Gledhil into our studio in week ten to work with invited seniors and company members. Lucy Ellis is one of the biggest names in Dance in Australia her private and group couching has become internationally recognised so we are excited to have her. Miss Courtney is one of our favs from the fabulous Top Jazz Ballet in Bunbury. She has been professionally working all over the world and is home for a limited time from China in April to come work with our girls in the fields of Hip Hop and Acro. We cant wait to have them both.

And then we start all over again =)

FUNDRAISING: We are currently selling chocolates and calendars in the studio so please if you can purchase on to support the girls we would greatly appreciate it. Calendars are only $20.00 and Chocolates from $1.00ea Let get these amazing kids to america!!

So After all that I think that's all I have to share. I look forward to chatting with you all again soon! Don't forget to visit us on facebook @dtxdancestudios...

Well it's that time of year again and I'm so so so excited to be beginning term one in only 2 weeks! We have so much planned for 2015 it's going to be unreal!! 

We have danced our way into 2015 with renovations to our beautiful dance studio in Greenfields, Mandurah! It has under gone some amazing painting and art work by the amazing Paul Tulk from BBK Airbrushing, featuring a hand painted variation of  our wonderful dancers and on of our beautiful dance photography pieces, a unique contemporary dancer and a gorgeous little ballerina who my daughter Willow has made friends with lol and now we patiently await the installation of a further 15 meters of customized dance mirrors! Something we have long awaited. To add to our renovations we also look forward to the installation of a customised sound proof curtain which will allow us, beginning term one to offer 2 dance studio spaces for junior classes meaning we can offer more dance classes, more private lesson and grow our dance competition team. Then in term two we welcome the installation of  220sqm of beautiful tarkett to our flooring. This will allow us greater consistence in dance training through climate changes and a safer space for growing dancers. Oh and a brand new 11 meter ballet barre.

This Saturday we open up the dance studio for our annual enrolment day (Details in Picture). We will be accepting enrolments all day for new and existing dance students as well as offering FREE DANCE CLASSES ALL DAY!! That's right you heard me FREE dance classes... The dance classes are open to all children and teenagers of the Mandurah and Peel area and well anyone really can come along. There is no cost and no obligation to enrol. We will also have bits and pieces for sale on the day including our 2015-2016 Dance Calendars and DTX uniform orders will be taken. We offer dance classes in RAD Ballet, Contemporary, Lyrical, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Acrobatics, Stretch & Strengthening, Adults Classes and also baby Classes. All within our beautiful Dance Studio in Greenfields, Mandurah. So come along have a free dance lesson on us and see how fun this little dance family can really be =)

We also begin our dance training and choreographic works next week for our performances at the WA Dance EXPO in March. We will be taking a team of 20-30 kids with us to perform a display of our competition work and then will be competing with a select elite group of 8 in the evening with a Lyrical Master Piece choreographed by Miss Tash. You are not going to miss this very unique dance.Then in term one we also begin work on dance concert routines, dance competition routines and now I'm very excited for this one.. Our America dance routines for our USA Dance Tour in December! 

We look forward in 2015 to again hitting the WA dance space hard, continuing to be recognised for our high standards of dance and strong choreographic skills and continuing to be known as one of Mandurah's Top Dance Schools!! Unlike others I take this title very seriously and I plan to really be Mandurah's Number One Dance School in 2015.. Your not going to want to be anywhere else! So come down Saturday and join the #dtxhussle, I'll see you there ;)
