Hello, Bon Jour and welcome to the Glittery Tapping Wonderland!
Bienvenue back to all our wonderful fairies!
And bienvenue …welcome to all of our new fairies!!
Italian this month!
Each month a Taploid/Newsletter arrives in your email box, or printed out at the studio as well as on our website.
If you are at the studio and reading this, maybe you haven’t received it via email. In which case you address maybe wonky in our Data base.
Please let us know if you don’t receive our emails or if you have changed your details.
Thank you all for being so wonderfully prompt with your fees payments!
I think we are practically all sorted out for the term, thank you for all your prompt payments!
Late Fee – Please remember that after the 3rd week; Saturday the 17th of February; there is a 10% late fee added to unpaid fees.
Fee balance – If you are or are not continuing after your 2 week trial we need to know at the end of your 2nd class so those on waiting lists can be placed into a class.
Term 1 will conclude on Thursday the 28th of March
Due to the Easter break, classes on Good Friday and Easter Saturday will not be running.
HELP US KEEP THE STUDIO LOVELY
We love that our lovely Mums and Dads bring entertainment and food for the younger siblings watching class, but please just be mindful that they don’t leave a huge pile of popcorn or crushed rice crackers on the floor.
We happily clean the studio daily but after each class is a little excessive! If your little one is having trouble finding their mouth, there is a dustpan located under the sink.
Please help us by packing up the toys after your children have used them. Thanks
Monday the 11th of March is Labour Day, a magical day when all pregnant women give birth, the hospitals will have a busy day I expect, but if you are around and not giving birth, we will be dancing as usual.
We ask if you could try hard to be on time for your dance classes.
The start of the class is just as important as the middle.
The fairies class begins with stars on their right foot and some magical glitter, a ritual that connects them with the teacher and makes them feel part of the class.
If the fairy is late, they miss out which can be quite devastating for a 3 year old!
If a child is late we will give them their stars and glitter, but this holds up the class or interrupts the exercise that the class has started on.
The older kids classes will miss out on warming up, which is a very important part to every dance class. Thanks for your understanding.
MAKE UP CLASSES
If your child is unwell or are going to miss a class we are happy for them to do a make-up class.
It is most important to book in for the make-up session because if you arrive to a class without us knowing there maybe several other children also having their make-up session on the same day/time.
This can cause colossal chaos and may result in having 14 children in a class and your gracious teacher foaming at the mouth.
Please call –
Glen Huntly Studio – Miss Casey (Miss Daisy Chain) on 0423 095 590
Mordialloc Studio – Miss Brianna (Miss Twinkle Toes) on 0420 356 232
Northcote Studio – Miss Leah (Miss Cuddle Pie) on 0423 095 855
PRIOR to the class to let her know so we can work out where you can fit in.
Make-up classes must be made up within the same term.
If we are not notified prior to class we cannot offer a make-up class.
DANCE WEAR FOR SALE
We have pale pink, fabulous red Ballet shoes and gorgeous pale pink Tap Shoes for sale at the studio.
There is also a range of wonderful leotards, fairy skirts, tutu’s, tie tops, leotard with skirts attached and princess dresses!
Please let Miss Vanessa know if you would like to try anything on.
JIFFIES AND “BALLET FLATS”
Jiffies and socks are not suitable to wear to dance class.
Both are very slippery and neither supports the foot.
Ballet flats are also not great to dance in as the kid’s scrunch their toes to hold them onto their feet.
Bare feet are fine and correct shoes are great!
Tap shoes – if you don’t have tap shoes yet, it is fine to wear something with a solid-ish heel/sole and that stays on your/their feet.
Although Barbie mules make a wonderful clacky sound, they don’t stay one their feet, so please refrain 😉
Please check our second hand box for some pre-loved shoes.
Watch out! Here comes the first Glitterization Day of 2013!
We usually have a Glitterization workshop each term so that those drab ol’ beige tap shoes can become exceedingly fabulous!
(Glittery shoes are not compulsory!)
-Cost – $20 – To be pre-paid.
-Date – TBA
-What you need to bring along-
– Your Dance shoes.
– 3 vials of glitter.
(Please don’t forget the glitter – such a personal choice!)
You can purchase glitter at Sam’s Warehouse, the Value Craft glitter is very good for Glitterizing your shoes.
Spotlight’s glitter is a bit dodgy and seems to fall off!
If you are going for, say, a pink glittery shoe, it can look fabulous with some opal or holographic silver mixed in.
It’s good to have some course glitter and some fine glitter in the mix.
If you are going for a primary colour like red or aqua, stick with the one colour glitter, as it will look insanely extraordinary!
Jaggered glitter also tends to fall off and looks a little nasty.
Please try not to stress too much over your glitter purchase, as they will look amazing once you have finished, whatever the colour!

Dr. Lottie is our resident health professional, she writes a column for our newsletter each month, she can be a little harsh but if you are seeking some advice and have the guts, feel free to write to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Dr. Lottie,
Mainly I think I am a very good, kind and patient mother.
But sometimes I find with the millions of things going on in our busy lives that I become a little bit forgetful.
I have found that I have left the kettle boiling on the stove, the bath running until it flows out into the hallway, my mother waiting on the other end of the phone whilst I answer the door.
(She was there for two hours!)
The worst scatterbrained mistake I have made is when I left my little toddler at my daughters dancing class, we drove home and I found he wasn’t in the car seat!
Am I going crackers?
Signed What Was My Name Again?
Dear What Was Your Name Again,
It seems as though you may have lost your marbles.
Has your husband not noticed that you have misplaced a couple of your children yet?
Maybe you forgot to tell him.
I think being forgetful is commonplace with most mothers as their brain is set free with the placenta.
I wouldn’t worry your empty head too much about it.
Have your address tattooed to your hand so you know where you live.
Thank you for your absentminded letter,
Thanks for reading!
Love Miss Lou Lou xxx
