April recently choreographed and performed ‘In Cahoots’ as part of Fringe Festival 2020, which was awarded WA overall winner of the Dance & Physical Theatre category.
Miss April will be teaching our Adult Ballet classes on Monday & Wednesday mornings 9 - 10am.
We were delighted with the number of students who enrolled on December 14th last year after our much loved Peter Pan concert.
Most RAD dancers collected their Certificates and Medals on this day too, and we would like to congratulate them on their terrific results.
As of 2020 Miss Avie (Jazz & Contemporary Co-Ordinator) will be teaching the new Jazz Addict Syllabus to all our Jazz classes. This syllabus has been chosen as it provides each student with solid technical training, performance based, and a platform to create, achieve and grow as a dancer and artist. Each level allows students to experience different modern styles of dance including Lyrical or Contemporary, Musical Theatre, and Modern Jazz.
Examinations are usually held each year in August. Although not compulsory to do exams, Swan River Ballet will be encouraging student to take part, as it is another opportunity to performance with many learning outcomes for students.
We are confident that the students will thoroughly enjoy being taught this syllabus by Miss Avie, who enjoyed it so much herself for many years. She completed many JazzAddict exams, including Advance 2 in 2015.
