Main St Funk Dance School Lalor - Jan 2016

Welcome to the first MSF newsletter for 2016. We are proud to be celebrating our 10th concert this year and we are thrilled that you are along for the ride, it's going to be a big one!

NEW VENUE.

After nearly a decade of running dance classes out of the Thomastown Library Community Rooms we have decided to relocate to a space that better accomadates our growth and the needs of our clients (you guys!). Main St Funk dance classes will now operate at Lalor Secondary College, David Street & Dalton Road, Lalor VIC 3075. They offer two spacious studios with hardwood flooring and a small kitchen area for the MSF parents to wait (though you are not required to wait during your child's lesson). This means we can run classes on two nights a week (Wednesday and Friday) and offer you more dance styles. Hooray for more dancing!

DANCE STYLES.

Main St Funk are now offering the following dance class styles (see below). If you are undecided about which styles to take you are welcome to try as many as you like at our open day.



  • Hip Hop
  • Ballet/Contemporary
  • Jazz Technique (Inters and Seniors Only)
  • Competition Crew




The MSF teachers are of a professional standard, hold the highest qualifications and are passionate about all styles of dance. Read more about their dance backgrounds here: http://mainstfunk.com/get-to-know-your-teachers/

MSF HIP HOP CREW

Main St Funk believe dance competitions can be an encouraging learning environment. Being part of a comp crew promotes team unity, confidence and is an opportunity to experience the thrill of performing in front of a new audience. Dance competitions allow MSF choreographers and students to learn and grow from feedback given by dance industry professionals. Main St Funk do not condone in house competitiveness or bad sportsmanship of any kind. When participating in comps The MSF Kids will be encouraged to have fun, make new friends and learn from their time as a performer and as an audience member.Crew members are required to also take part in their age group's standard hip hop class as well as one technical dance style (ballet and contemporary or jazz). As a crew member, you are expected to be fully committed to your team. This means attending all classes and you must be available for ALL competitions. More info on dates coming soon.

UNIFORM AND SHOES

When attending dance class it is important to wear the correct attire and shoes to ensure that you get the most out of your class. We ask that all students comply with our uniform requirements as it promotes team unity and equality, allows free movement without restrictions and reduces the risk of injury. Term 1 will be seen as a grace period to give families the time to find and purchase their shoes and attire. Uniform will be enforced as of Week 1, Term 2. We encourage you to check out Energetiks Factory Outlet, Target, Kmart, Best and Less, Payless Shoes and Ebay for less expensive options.


MINI AND JUNIOR, BALLET/CONTEMPORARY: Mini and junior students attending ballet/contemporary classes are asked to wear a black ballet leotard with pink ballet tights. Ballet shoes are required and hair should be pulled back off the face to limit distractions. Ballet skirts and crossovers are optional. Jiffys are not permitted.


INTER AND SENIOR, BALLET/CONTEMPORARY AND JAZZ: Inter and senior students participating in technical styles are required to wear firm fitting black leggings and a black leotard or firm fitting black singlet. Baggy clothing is not appropriate for these styles. Students will also require the appropriate shoes for class i.e pink leather or canvas ballet shoes, black leather jazz shoes and bare feet for contemporary. Hair should be pulled back into a ponytail.


HIP HOP: Free, loose clothing and supportive sneakers/runners. No shorts, skirts or denim please. Students will be required to have their own plain black, hi top, sneaker boots for performances.


Main St Funk also have their very own funky t-shirt that is compulsory for all students as they are worn for the mid-year performance, the end of year concert and any performance opportunities throughout the year.
