It’s finally here! The end of the year, and of course, at Ballet Coaching, that means the end of year concert! This year, we showcase the wonderful talent produced in our studios through the year. Our young dancers get the opportunity to show us what they’ve learnt, and we get the opportunity to be dazzled! The students at Ballet Coaching glow with pride, as they perform on stage. It is such a special evening, and we are so looking forward to it!
A conversation with Monique’s student, Jen, and her mother Sandra.
Jen came to Monique as a teenager for further ballet coaching and mentoring over 10 years ago, having been accepted into the Interstate Australian Ballet Junior School. Today, Jen and her mother Sandra talk about how training with Monique gave Jen confidence, resilience, grace and strength, as well as many other life skills that have helped Jen become the person she is today.
After many months of preparation, and years of dreaming, together with approximately 80 friends, family and current and alumni dance students and their families, we celebrated the opening of The Dance Warehouse at Palm Shopping Centre, Wollongbar.
(But first some blood, sweat, tears and love…)
After coaching young dancers for twenty-four years, the time has finally arrived to offer classes in our very own custom-designed dance studios in Wollongbar.
I have dreamt about this project for months – years! And we spent at least a year developing plans and gaining approval from council. Just after our concert last year, we could finally begin developing our new space in the Palm Shopping Centre, Wollongbar.
Alstonville/Wollongbar based dance studio, BalletCoaching, is set to sign a lease for a new studio space on the eve of its end of year show, so on the 1st of December this year, Ms Feain's pen will be poised to sign the lease on brand new purpose built premises in Wollongbar, which will become The Dance Warehouse.
One of the best ways to insure that this is not your fate when you start back next year, is to really focus on improving your strength, flexibility and awareness over the break, and then perfecting your technique in your first few weeks back, before beginning to increase the hours again. If you have been working with me for a while then you will have loads of exercises and ideas to try and today I wanted to give you a little help in organising them to help you through the holiday season, and to arrive back in full form.
