Change to Winter Class Schedule

Change to Winter Class Schedule

in: Magpie's Nest, Seraka Studios

After discussing with the class(es). I’ve decided to amend the scheduled for the remainder of the winter session, effective today 19 March 2017.

  • Level 1 Studies – good to go as scheduled. No changes
  • Fundamentals – good to finish with our last class tonight.
  • Remaining Spotlight/Combo classes will be cancelled, so that instead of 10-weeks, it was only 5-weeks. This class will not be held tonight.
  • DrillZilla will be modified to a one-hour class from 7:15-8:15pm starting next week (26 Mar), open to Levels 1+.

An email will be sent to students who’ve paid up front for classes to discuss refunds & shifting payments.

Gentle reminder, per our regular schedule for the semester, that there is no class on Sunday, February 12.

As this was taken into account before classes were scheduled for the semester, it does not affect your registration or length of session.

See you next week!

Vanessa, Karen & Susan are travelling to Toronto to be part of The Lavish Project 2016 – an artist in residency program directed by Audra Simmons & Heather Labonté of The Dark Side Studio.  Working five 10-hour studio days with 12 dancers from across Canada to prepare and create pieces for “harmony/discord” on Sat Apr 2 at ROUND venue in Kensington Market.

Since we’re not in province, make sense that classes will be cancelled. The final classes for this session are: Mar 20, Apr 10, Apr 17 & Apr 24. See you at The Dance Centre!

Summer Classes – Schedule Changes

posted on July 10, 2015 by Vanessa
in: Seraka Studios

Due to this year’s July and August being warm and summer-like, registration numbers are low for a number of classes in the summer schedule.  Sadly, this means some classes will be cancelled, including the following four:

  • Technique L1 (Tuesdays @ 7:45-8:45pm)
  • Technique L2 (Wednesdays @ 6:30-7:30pm)
  • Stagecraft (Wednesdays @ 7:45-8:45pm)
  • Fundamentals (Wednesdays @ 7:45-8:45pm)

We are still taking registrations for VEILS (Tue Aug 18 & Tue Aug 25 @ 7:45-8:45pm) and for FUNDAMENTALS (Tuesdays @ 6:30-7:30pm)

If there is enough interest in occasional workshops, they will be scheduled as requested.  If you have an idea for a class or workshop you’d like to take, we welcome you to contact us with your ideas and belly dance cravings.
