It has been another crazy summer! Aside from the obvious virus-that-shall-not-be-named, I also had my first baby!
So I have roped in some help for term 1 to help me adjust to being a working mum.
Welcome the lovely Clare Farrell, who will be teaching on Wednesdays for term 1. She will be a big hit with the students!
Hands up who’s ready to go back to dance?!
Well it has certainly been an eventful summer for me! Between getting married, going on honeymoon and fostering (most likely adopting!) a beautiful rescue dog named Luna, it has been amazing from start to finish. I hope that all of my lovely students and their families have had wonderful summers also and I can’t wait to hear all about them!
Our first day back is Monday, September 9th. I have a busy year planned, with some new and exciting things happening! There will be a Spring ballet exam session, open classes, and hopefully for the first time, some Jazz exams also!
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
Preparations are under way for our 2017 presentation ‘Once Upon A Dream’ which takes place in the Gort Community Centre, Sunday April 9th at 3pm. A show full of fairies, princesses and of course, no fairy tale is complete without a Wicked Witch or two! Come along and enjoy a fun family afternoon of ballet and jazz dance presented by the students of CMB Academy of Dance and some special guests.
Under the Sea
CMB Academy of Dance are pleased to present ‘Under the Sea’, a FREE event in the Lady Gregory Hotel Restaurant Wednesday May 25th at 5.30pm.
All are welcome to attend our mini show involving 27 local children ages 3-10yrs and featuring some senior students from Corrib Dance Academy, in aid of the Gort Resource Centre. The show is approx 30 mins and there will be a raffle. Donations to the GRC very welcome.
CMB Academy of Dance was established in September 2014 by Ciara Kavanagh, and what a first year it’s been!
– At Christmas we invited the families in to watch what goes on in a typical class. The students loved having an audience and the parents were beaming with pride!
– In March, after just 6 months of ballet training, the Pre-Primaries took their first Royal Academy of Dance exams. We were all thrilled when they received outstanding results.
– In May we had an end of year show where families were again invited in to watch a mini-performance. The Pre-Ballet class were Bees and Ladybirds and the Pre-Primaries were Daisies. They all looked lovely in their beautiful costumes and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
I am so looking forward to next year’s ballet adventures!
