What's New

Term 3 Dance Classes
The timetable for Term 3 is now available. The new classes scheduled for next term (Chinese and Mums and Bubs African dance) will now be delayed until Term 4. Apologies for any inconvenience.

African Cancelled 31st August

Very sorry to say that the African class will be cancelled on the 31st August due to a performance at Belconnen Arts Centre. Why not check out another class this week, and we will see you next week ready to dance.

Burlesque Classes

The Canberra Dance Theatre is running Burlesque classes on Tuesday nights from 6:00-7:20pm. Starting on Tuesday 22 July, the term runs until 23 September and costs $180 (plus an annual membership fee of $40). The classes are a good laugh, great fun and cover the charleston and the art of fan dancing. If you are interested, come along and try it. Or if you know women who would be interested, let them know or bring them along.

New Teacher - Ballet Beginners Class on Sunday

From Week 1 in Term 3 there will be a new teacher for the Beginner's Ballet class held on Sunday at 2pm. We are delighted to have Kate Levy join the CDT teaching team – she will bring her particular skills to Sunday Beginner Ballet classes. Kate has many years experience as a professional contemporary dancer and has worked with companies such as Australian Dance Theatre, Chunky Move and Opera Australia.
