Term 3 classes, new Mount studio, new Saturday classes, Holiday programme
Our term two finishes next week with the exception of all Monday classes which finish on 3 July, Bethlehem Primary and Advanced Acro which finish 4 July, and Bethlehem College which finishes 7 July.
All term three classes start the week beginning Monday 31 July.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE RETURNING NEXT TERM SO WE DON'T CHARGE YOU.
TERM THREE FEES:
If you are staying in the same class you do not need to re-enrol in term three.
In term three we collect the costume fees for our shows (at Baycourt Theatre on 25 November) as we are already purchasing costumes.
For those taking Hip Hop classes (this includes the classes held in primary & intermediate schools) please add $45 per costume to your term three fees.
For those in Contemporary and Jazz, costumes are $55.
Note that, as well as the cost of the costume these charges include a sourcing fee and a contribution towards make-up, hairspray, clips etc. The costume is yours to keep after the shows.
Some classes may have an additional cost for shoes - eg. Jazz students will require jazz shoes. We will let you know closer to the shows if your group requires shoes.
So, to clarify before term three starts, if your child is in:
- a class at a primary or intermediate school please pay $120 ($75 term fee + $45 show costume)
- a Hoppers (5 year olds) class, please pay $140 ($95 term fee + $45 show costume)
- a hip hop class including boys' only, please pay $140 ($95 term fee + $45 show costume)
- a jazz class, please pay $150 ($95 term fee + $55 show costume)
- a 45 minute per week contemp class, please pay $150 ($95 term fee + $55 show costume)

All adults to pay $95 term three fees.
If any adult groups perform in shows, they will source their own costumes (the teacher will discuss this with you) - so please do not pay us for a costume.

We have started a show frequently asked questions page on the website. Please check the link below before phoning or emailing us. If the answer to your question is not there, we may well not know the answer either at this early stage. These FAQs will be continually updated as we work through our show planning.
NEW MOUNT VENUE FROM TERM THREE:
We are moving our 3&4 year old Friday Arataki Community Centre class and ALL St Mary's classes to Rise Dance Company's new studio at 150 Newton Street, Mount Maunganui (next to the Global Gym).
Our shop and office at the Historic Village will also be moving to the new studio site so there may be some disruption to our opening hours - we aim to keep you advised.
Our Historic Village shop/office will close for the final time on Thursday 29 June.
Note that our Historic Village STUDIO will continue operating as normal for dance classes.

Sadly Phebe is leaving Rise at the end of term two to start her next adventure with the Navy.
A huge thank you to Phebe for a wonderful 3 years with Rise. Phebe has had wonderful successes with her hip hop crews (and regular weekly classes) and has been an asset to the company. We wish you all the best with your new career and will miss you Phebe!
Taking over from Phebe on Tuesdays is Shannon B (not owner Shannon V) who has an extensive background in dance teaching. Tina (a current teacher at Rise) (also with extensive teaching experience) will be taking Phebe's Thursday night Papamoa classes.
