Editors Noticeboard Dear Reader Well I don’t think we have experienced a cold winter like this one for a very long time. Instead of trying to avoid the cooler months, embrace winter and look for the best it has to offer. Participate in some winter sports like skiing, ice skating or snow boarding. Plan a trip to the snow, kids should be encouraged to be outdoors even in the cooler months and experience what nature has to offer. Enjoy these opportunities while you can – winter will be over before you know it! Curl up on the couch and enjoy some great reading we have prepared for you. • Social Mums looks at how Facebook can be a great way to keep in touch with your Mothers Group and in turn can make a positive difference to motherhood. • We take a look at how a mother wears “many hats” as a mum, wife, cleaner, etc and the importance of removing these “hats” in order to re-energise a busy mum’s mental health and wellbeing. • Elena Byrne gives some helpful tips on how to create a Designer Look for your family home while maintaining family friendly characteristics like functionality and flexibility. Plus lots more!! Please dig deep and support the Cancer Council this Daffodil Day Friday 23 August and donate to a great cause that can make a difference... every bit helps!

Editorial – Business of the Month

Learning Through Dance “Tess has gained so much confidence in such a short time. The teachers offer encouragement and praise at appropriate stages of achievement, boosting her self-esteem tremendously.”

Children love to move and they love to learn. At Essentially Ballet, the natural love and enjoyment in movement, so obvious in young children, is nurtured and used to draw out the full potential in each child. From the very youngest levels, learning to dance is a joyful experience.

Danielle brought her daughter Tess to Essentially Ballet as she was shy and clingy. “Tess has gained so much confidence in such a short time. The teachers offer encouragement and praise at appropriate stages of achievement, boosting her self-esteem tremendously.” Danielle said.

The friendly atmosphere at Essentially Ballet creates a shared camaraderie and trust between students and teachers. Respect for self and others is a key element in the teaching philosophy.

“My daughter Sasha aspired to be a professional dancer” said Ms Robbins. “When I looked for a dance school that could help her realise this ambition, Essentially Ballet was the right school for us” she said. Essentially Ballet has had a number of students successfully audition for prestigious dance institutes including The Australian Ballet school and the Victorian College of the Arts.

The carefully developed training programmes, beginning in the pre-school years through to university level students, are designed to address the learning needs of students at each stage of their development. Each level builds purposefully from the previous level. Children of all ages are encouraged to master their own individual goals, through the development of self-confidence and a belief in their own ability. Classes in the early years assist social development, physical co-ordination and strength, postural awareness, balance, and hand-eye co-ordination. Children are encouraged to express themselves to music and use their imagination. Learning to share, take turns, follow the leader, working in groups and listening to the teacher are also qualities instilled by the teachers at Essentially Ballet. 16

August 2013

Whatever the aim of the student, from baby ballerinas to vocational training, students of all backgrounds, talents and abilities are welcome at Essentially Ballet. Essentially Ballet offers classes during school terms and additional school holiday programs. Call the office today on 9444 7847 or email linda@eballet.com.au to arrange a free trial class for your child. Visit www.eballet.com.au for more information.

IF YOUR CHILD CAN WALK, YOUR CHILD CAN RIDE! No more tricycle tip-overs or training wheel wobbles With the Strider Balance Bike, there are no tricycle tip-overs or training-wheel wobbles to create a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding. The Strider balance bike helps toddlers learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling, which develops glittering confidence. So ditch the tricycle and training wheels, and teach your child to ride a bike sooner and safer with a Strider. For ages 18 months to 5 years.
