NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!
Even though schools remain open in Australia, at least for now, we've decided to halt all our studio group classes. Nothing is more important to us than the wellbeing of our students and their families. Applying Social Distancing and the required personal distance is difficult to maintain in a dance class. We have therefore decided to stop all in-studio group classes, effective immediately.
However, this will not stop us, dancers don't quit, and we are ready! We start with LIVE ONLINE CLASSES FROM TOMORROW, MONDAY 23rd of March!
Later today, all our students and their families will receive detailed information and an updated timetable by email.
Stay safe and keep dancing!

Best wishes to everyone and students enjoy this new challenge.x

STUDENTS JOIN ONLINE CLASSES
Today, we started streaming some of our studio classes live and it was great to see students join in from their homes or gardens, from the Gold Coast and as far away as the Netherlands.

LIVE STREAMING STARTING TOMORROW!
Now that we have our online video platform ready, we will start with streaming the first classes tomorrow, Saturday. This will allow some of our students to join our classes who are still overseas or are otherwise not able to attend.
We are following the development daily, and we'll decide tomorrow if classes should continue on Monday "as normal" (in studio), or if we switch to online classes.

The classes are for our students only at this stage. Each student needs to log on to the ABDA website and connect through the link there. There are so many added issues to consider like music licensing rights, privacy etc if we make the livestream public..
So normal class tomorrow for everyone else?

Dear friends & family…
as the coronavirus (COVID-19) is taking hold in Australia, the Australian Government has advised that non-essential gatherings should be limited to 500 people. We are doing what we can to keep our studios as virus-free as possible, offering hand sanitizer to all students and disinfecting ballet barres, doorknobs, bathrooms and kitchens daily.
As long as schools remain open, so does our studio. But - what happens when schools indeed close and students and their families are required to isolate?
WE ARE READY FOR SUCH A MOMENT!
To maintain a certain level of normalcy, to stay positive, happy & fit in such a situation, we have put resources in place to continue classes online!
While designed for our students, we are considering to open our virtual doors to other young dancers as well.
We will share more information soon. ... See MoreSee Less

So proud of our stunning graduate Camryn Jefferson, who has just been offered a full contract with the Saarländisches Staatstheater in Saarbrücken, Germany!
Camryn trained at ABDA for five years, before moving to Germany to complete her ballet and contemporary training at the Palucca University of Dance in Dresden.
We wish Camryn a huge Toi Toi Toi for this exciting next step of her dance journey, which begins this September.
