BRING A FRIEND DAYS
Bring a friend days are to encourage dance and movement in Te Puke.
Bring a friend days will run after examinations have finished in term three.

WATCHING WEEKS At the end of each term families are able to watch and take photos during the lesson.
STUDENT COLLECTION & CAR PARK SAFETY Children are not permitted to wait outside. Please collect your child from inside the studio.
MOCK EXAMINATIONS Mock exams are conducted two weeks before examinations. Mock exams rehearse the protocol of examinations thus ensuring a polished, fast and smooth examination. Mock examinations also give each student feedback. This will help students polish specific movements that need attention.
