IT has been a big first week back for Tanilba Bay’s Ultimate Dance and Performing Arts with new equipment, classes and students.
Saturdays enrolment day saw 40 new students come to register for the year, as well as over 100 returning students from last year.
A large amount of new equipment such as gymnastics uneven bars, 3 and 6 metre air track mats, an air cylinder, air launch pad, 3 metre elite gymnastics beam, a cart wheel training mat, balance beam trainer mat, on floor balance beam, four tumbling mats and a mini trampoline has enabled the studio to also increase their class selection.
Tracie Tickle, owner, director and teacher at Ultimate Dance told News Of The Area: “We introduced the new equipment for the students to be able to train for fun and enjoyment, to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, or just to increase skills and confidence.”
“The classes are open to anyone, whether that be for one day a week to entertain their child or if they are looking for a sport to pursue locally,” she said.
Tracie has just returned from Queensland, becoming internationally recognised to teach all 12 levels of the Acrobatics Arts syllabus.
This achievement is widely regarded, making the studio the only club in Tanilba Bay and surrounding areas qualified to teach the syllabus.
Due to this achievement, the studio is now offering Acrobatic Arts and Dance classes, along with Kindy gym and gymnastics.
“Adding to the new developments coming this year, we will be conducting community performances, competing in competitions, and have multiple students involved in the production of Grease the musical.”
“It was a very successful first week back, with lots of excited students joining our dance family and enjoying all the new equipment,” Tracie said.
