For 2018 we are shaking things up a little and taking our dance classes to the next level!
Salt at Gracegate is introducing Modern Dance Syllabus of New Zealand (MDSNZ) – EXAM Classes: 

We have the opportunity to offer Exam Classes this year as an added extra (or alternative – depending on what your child would prefer) to our usual dance classes! This would mean learning various barre exercises, centrework & dances in different styles throughout the year, culminating in an exam at the end of Term 3. 

The MDSNZ classes are still free, however to sit the exam there is a charge in order to cover the cost of the examiner, admin, resources etc. This will not exceed $60 p/child & would not need to be paid until Term 3. 

Read more about MDSNZ on the following link:

3.30pm – 4.15pm  Junior Dance (5 – 10 years)
