Conservatorium and Dance Studio partner to offer complete artistic experience to students

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.

At the beginning of Term 3, Mitchell Conservatorium will launch Music and Movement classes for Tiny Tots (3 - 5 years) 4.00pm Thursdays; Juniors (6 – 8 years) 4.00pm Tuesdays and intermediate (9 – 13 years) 4.30pm Tuesdays. Individual lessons on piano, singing and guitar are also available at the school. For more information, please contact Mindy at Twinkle Toes Dance studio on 0421 442 677 or Mitchell Conservatorium on 6852 3766.
