Mitchell Conservatorium Lachlan Division and Twinkle Toes Dance Studio are partnering to offer music lessons to local dance students. Twinkle Toe dance students can now access instrumental and vocal lessons and coaching, as well as music appreciation classes at the dance school alongside their dance lessons. This will offer dance students the opportunity to broaden their skills and education to other forms of artistic training, vital to students who wish to perform in a variety of contexts.
