CHANGE OF TEACHER FOR 2019 - MONDAY CLASSES
A reminder that Grace Stevens will not be taking her Monday classes this year as she is attending  University in America.  We are sad she won't be teaching this year, but are lucky enough to have a new teacher filling in for her - Brooke Moody.  Brooke is an experienced, fun teacher and I'm sure the students will enjoy her classes.

BROOKE MOODY
Brooke has been dancing since she was 10 years old. She has trained in many genres specializing in jazz, commercial, contemporary, lyrical, ballet and acro. Brooke graduated from Brent Street in Sydney, Australia with a Diploma of Performing Arts. She has been actively involved in a wide range of commercial work including: ‘All That Jazz’ at Tempo dance festival, Premiers Gala Conference in Sydney, dancing for RAZÉ at the Vodafone Pacific Music Awards and most recently performing in ‘Duality’ at Q Theatre. Brooke is currently dancing professionally with Momentum Productions. She is an extremely passionate teacher and committed to working with her students to develop their style, confidence and love for dance
