October came with a big surprise with a film company from Cape Town. They auditioned some of our First Step Ballet children for parts in a movie! Three of them were successful with main parts and the other dancers were given small roles too. The film is on the KykNet Channel on Christmas Day. How exciting for our future stars!
Dance clothes donations
We are always looking for dance clothes donations. We were so lucky to receive some beautiful clothes from a young girl in Cape Town. She made it her mission to collect unwanted Ballet clothes and donate them to First Step Ballet. What a wonderfully, kind gesture from this beautiful child who is only just 12 years old. We thank you so much!! Here is one of our farm children showing off her new leotard… As you can see she is delighted!
We had our AGM meeting at the end of October. It was supported very well by the Ballet Moms, Dads and Grandparents. We are looking forward to future plans for the children and getting ready for our Christmas party, which the Moms are busy fundraising for. Watch this space!!
