January 2018

WELCOME TO 2018!

Hi everyone, welcome to another year of dancing! We trust you all had a fabulous time over the break and are feeling refreshed and energised. We are so excited to see so many returning students and to meet all of our new families as well. It’s going to be a big year at Main St Funk.

EPPING STUDIO: 6/13 Lydia Court Epping.

Phase 1 of our new dancing home is just about ready for all of you to move in and to bring it to life! Phase 1 includes a ground floor studio with mirrors, ballet barres and sprung flooring. There is a spacious foyer and a comfortable lounge area for students and parents. Bathroom amenities are on site and tea and coffee is available for a gold coin donation.

Our plans for phase 2 include a second story mezzanine studio, also equipped with mirrors barres, and a wall on the ground floor to close off the studio. This will accomodate our busy timetable and will allow us to run two classes at once!

Please bear with us for the coming weeks while your studio is a work in progress

PLEASE NOTE: All Wednesday and Friday dance classes will continue to run at Lalor Secondary College until Phase 2 is complete. All Tuesday and Saturday classes will run at the Epping Studio as of Tuesday Jan 30th and Saturday Feb 3rd. The timetable will remain the same when all classes have moved over to Epping

LOCATION: 6/13 Lydia Court Epping

Our new address is located within Lydia Business Park – it is a brand new development and it doesn’t yet come up in Google Maps or some GPS apps. See below

PARKING

There is plenty of on street parking on Lydia Court for MSF families.

You are welcome to drive down the driveway to drop your children at the MSF door, or walk them in through the gate once you’ve parked in the street. Please don’t drop children at the gate.

Currently, the onsite car spaces are allocated to MSF teachers only and other tenants in the business park. We expect to be able to use the parking in future, but for now please park in the street and help us start a good relationship with our neighbours!

TERM FEES

All new and returning students have the opportunity to trial all classes available for their age group in the first week of term one. Term fees are then due in the third week of term and are payable by cash, cheque or transfer. Term fees include all costumes and concert costs.

PARENTS

Parents of students who are new or trialing a class are welcome to sit in and watch their child’s first lesson with us. Following this, no parents are permitted in the dance room unless invited in by the teacher. Please note that photography and videography during class time are not permitted due to child safety laws. You are welcome to take photos of your child (only) before and after class.

Parents in the Epping studio please be mindful of chatter and restless siblings in the lounge area as we don’t yet have a wall to close off the studio.
