Term 2 Newsletter

Welcome back to Term 2!

Monday 29th April until Saturday 29th June, 2019
(no classes Monday long weekend)

We hope you have had a lovely break and are ready for a new term.

Miss Kim has spent the holidays in New York City with 10 of our Senior Stream dancers, taking part in the JF NYC Dance Intensive which happens every two years. This trip, targeted towards advanced dancers in all styles of dance, sees students taking 30 dance classes in ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, street jazz, hip hop, yoga and more at the renown Broadway Dance Centre. This year we also had the amazing opportunity to take a Fosse Masterclass with one of Fosse’s original performers as well as a class in aerial yoga! We hope you have had a chance to check out our adventures on The Jazz Factory instagram and facebook page and look forward to sharing some more stories from our trip.

TERM 2 FEES

You would have now received your Term 2 invoice which includes the first deposit towards concert costumes. The Jazz Factory orders its costumes from Weissmans in the USA, which students are able to keep after the concert. To keep costs at a minimum (and allow for over 900 costumes to be ordered), we start ordering our costumes in Term 2. If your child is not participating in our end of year concerts, please ensure you inform the office ASAP as once ordered, cost for costumes is non refundable. Students are fitted for their costumes in class and will receive them closer to our photo and concert days in November.

Please ensure you have diarised all concert dates which are also available on our website.

WINTER UNIFORM

At The Jazz Factory we believe that neatness in presentation is important for all dancers and therefore have a strict uniform policy.

Please make sure that all students have uniform items for winter which includes 3/4 leggings, long leggings for seniors, track pants, crossovers for all juniors, long sleeve T-shirts for seniors and JF jumpers and hoodies from size 4.

Please also note that leotards must be worn under all t-shirts (year 6+) except for hip hop. No t-shirts are to be worn in technique or ballet classes.

Teachers will be asking students to remove any clothing items that are not part of the uniform.

The uniform shop is open on a Monday from 4-6pm, Thursday 5-6pm and Saturday 9-11am.

We are also accumulating a large lost property collection, so please have a look through this for any items you might have misplaced.

Our Theatre Company will present Alice in Wonderland Jr on Sunday June 16th at 12pm and 3pm at Monte Sant Angelo.

Private Lessons

Our singing studio and extra studio space @ Gordon gives us the opportunity to offer all students private lessons in singing and dance. The link below will take you to our private lesson calendar where you can see available times and available teachers to book and pay online. Private singing lessons are the best way for students to develop their voices and private dance lessons are a great way for students to work on things in a one-on-one environment.
