Seven weeks was all Dream Dance Academy had to stage their end-of-year concert, and in a leap of success, the November 28 event was “the best yet.” After the studio doors closed in August this year due to COVID shutdowns, staff, students and parents returned to Dream Dance Academy seven weeks ago, eager to put on a show. With what seemed like all the time in the world to reflect, Dream Dance Academy principal Katie Fyfe took a moment to appreciate how she had achieved her purpose in life; become a dance teacher and mother. It was the reflection that gave Ms Fyfe the inspiration for the theme for this year’s end-of-year concert, ‘When I grow up’. “Lockdown has given me a lot of time to think about why I do what I do. I always wanted to be a dance teacher and a mom, so I feel really lucky to be able to do that,” said Mrs. Fyfe. “It was the last concert for some of my senior students and I thought the theme would be a nice way to say goodbye to them.” Although having less than two months to organize the concert was not ideal, the excitement of seeing the locals take center stage seemed to motivate the students, teachers and parents who contributed to the success of the event. . “We weren’t back in the studio until seven weeks into lockdown, so it was a real challenge to put it all together, but we couldn’t have asked for things to go more perfectly,” Ms Fyfe said. “We usually had at least double the time to prepare for the gig…so we started planning the gig right away to give them [students] something to look forward to after all that time at home. “It was without a doubt the fastest concert we had to organize, but everyone did such a good job, all my teachers, my students and their parents. I couldn’t have asked someone one of being more supportive and helpful.” tell the kids, you can really do whatever you want to do. Dream big and work hard, never give up.
