WELCOME TO THE VERY FIRST MSF NEWSLETTER OF 2020!
TERM 1 STARTS THIS COMING MONDAY, FEB 3RD.
We are so excited to enter a new decade with our dancing family and to celebrate Main St Funk’s 14th birthday. It is with big warm hearts that we welcome back SO MANY returning and dedicated students and we are equally excited to meet lots of new faces too who are starting their dancing journey with Main St Funk.
WELCOME BACK TO OUR DEDICATED TEACHING TEAM!
Along with our gorgeous students, we also welcome back our resident teaching legends, Nakarin and Bree, along with two new teachers, Laura and Holly, who already fit in perfectly with our dancing family.
Many of our younger classes are also privileged with a fantastic student teacher to assist them in their learning each week. We welcome back Stephanie, Evie, Keira, and Tiana and welcome to the team, Summer! These students have been with Main St Funk for a number of years and have shown a high level of dedication and passion for dance and working with the younger MSF kids sparks a joy and sense of acheivement in each of them.

THE ROARING 20s AND THE MSF SPIRIT!
As always, in 2020 we aim to continue our legacy of being a welcoming, inclusive, FUN and vibrant dance school. We strongly believe in ensuring every student feels special and valued in our community and we hope that as each of you walk through our studio door, that not only do you experience the benefit of our big family culture but you also uphold the Main St Funk spirit by being kind, having a positive attitude and trying your very best. This standard filters right through our school, from our leading teaching team, to our younger students and even our dance parents.
If you are new to MSF, you may have signed up for our dance classes because you want your child to dance for fun, fitness, and friendships. We absolutely provide an environment for these things to flourish but please know, we also instill in each of our students a strong work ethic and we encourage our students to be dedicated and committed to dance in a way that is realistic and sustainable. We encourage our students to approach dance by putting their best foot forward, having a positive mindset and knowing that it is ok to make mistakes and to be a “work in progress.”
At Main St Funk we have found a fabulous balance where our students are consistently challenged to work to the best of their abilities and at the same time, have fun and make amazing memories along the way.
We have eliminated the pressures that are often associated with dance class by teaching a quality dance education without competitions, exam results or report cards and there is no in-house competitiveness because every student is “the star” in their own special way. We aim to encourage our students to work as a team, to applaud in each other’s acheivements and to aim to be THEIR best not THE best.
Main St Funk has made a mark in the local community because our reputation for being an all-inclusive, welcoming dance school is beyond compare. Our vision was to create an environment that felt like family but that doesn’t work without the wonderful kids and parents who share and uphold our values. So thank you, for contributing to what makes Main St Funk a dance school with a difference and for ensuring dancing is ours, and all of the MSF kids’, happy place!
We can’t wait to welcome you all back, or for the first time, into our dancing home and we just know, with the MSF spirit soaring stronger than ever, that 2020 is going to be a great year. LET’S ROAR!
