Dear Miss Anita, As you’re aware, I’m leaving ACSOD and will not be returning next year. So I wanted to write you a short letter, so I can express all I have learnt from you and my thanks for all you have done. I hope it is as heart-warming as I hope for it to be... I came to ACSOD as an approx. 4 year old. To be honest I can’t really remember much from those early days. I remember crying once in maybe grade 2 when I got put up into a class and I didn’t know anything. I like to think that since then I’ve become a bit more resilient. I remember also, making lifelong friends. Having singing competitions in our lunch breaks, spending all day Saturdays at the old studios with concert rehearsals and thinking I’d practically hit the big time. I remember moving into the new studios, having singing lessons with Phil, chats with Ange, being warned that Liv was scary and realising she was actually the bomb. I remember dance after dance with sooo much warmth. And all throughout the changing studios, and class mates, and teachers, and routines, has been you guiding me all through it. And I have so much to thank you for; you’ve created and run a dance school that has been a constant source of escape, enjoyment, education and general-soul-nourishment in every class, with every friend I’ve made and every little thing I’ve learnt. It has indeed being a huge part of forming the person I am today. Your little saying that you teach dance lessons and life lessons is oh so true. From you and your school I have learnt how to accept corrections as compliments and thrive off the opportunity for improvement they allow; embedding in me resilience to any tribulations I face in transforming them in a chance to grow. I’ve learnt a unique level of discipline and respect for others, how to keep a group together and spirits high, how to lead and how to follow, how to respect my body and how to be confident and be captivating and engaging. All of these skills, while developed for dance, will serve me for the entirety of my life and I can’t wait to see how they will help me to get wherever I end up. Miss Anita, no amount of words can explain my gratitude to you, your staff, your students and your studios, for all they have provided me with which will continue be an integral part of me for the rest of my life. I am so truly thankful, and I hope to see you on many, many occasions, in the near future, distant future and every future in between! L
What a fantastic first week to start term 3.... I am so very grateful to have such a wonderful teaching faculty to support me with preparations for examinations and groups. Though we strive to produce and to achieve outstanding results....the most important thing is the amazing work ethic we ALL - teachers/students and support-team share. It is my absolute joy to witness our students bonding and cementing friendships. I am so proud to see our students passion and confidence grow week after week. Thank you to everyone involved for your efforts!
