In 2018 we celebrate 10 years of Inspiration Dance Academy. We are so excited for what is shaping up to be a very exciting year!
I still sometimes can’t believe it’s been 10 years. I remember my first day like it was yesterday. I was quite nervous and wanted everything to be perfect. I was finishing off my last term of fulltime dance at Ev and Bow Fulltime Dance Training and headed straight to the studio. I think I was still in shock that my life dream was actually coming true.
The electricity wasn’t working when I first arrived and I panicked – My first day and I have no lights and no music, GREAT START! Lucky enough my amazing parents came to rescue me and showed me how to flick a power switch on the board that had ticked over and WHOLA – We had power! (big sigh of relief)
From there on I started living my dream. There has been many ups and some downs as well, but it has been worth every late night finishing off costumes, notes or emails. I consider myself very blessed that I am able to wake up each day and go to work and do something I am passionate about. I have always loved teaching children and watching them grow and soak everything in. There is something special about kids they just makes your day brighter.
Over the time I have the opportunity to be a part of an amazing community and I feel so honoured. I have met so many wonderful children and families (some I have taught since they were little and now they have left school – that makes me feel really old) It is nice to walk down the shops and see familiar faces and have chat with people that have been a part of my journey throughout the last 10 years. I wouldn’t be here without them.
In coming up to the celebration of 10 years I decided it was time to freshen up our “look.” I wanted to create a new logo for the students to wear with pride and be proud of the family they are a part of at Inspiration Dance Academy.
It wasn’t easy! I went back and forwards a lot with our designer Karen but we got the end result I was hoping for. I was so excited to show the students, it was hard not letting it slip each day. It was well worth the wait, I think it will last us at least another 10 years! The kids were so excited and have been talking about it ever since the big reveal.
With our “NEW LOOK,” came our new signs at each studio (with the help from my amazing brother Jordan – you cant run a dance school without amazing family). Then came our SUPER COOL WEBSITE! It’s nice to finally share with you what I have been working on the last few months.
In August we will be holding our 10-year party with all past and present Inspiration Dance Academy family and friends. It will a fun night to reminisce and celebrate all the fun times we have had at the studio and to the many, many more over the next 10 years! I can’t wait to celebrate this milestone with everyone that has made my dream come true. Click here to book your tickets online.
We have a few more fun things in store for everyone this year so keep your eye out for these throughout the year. It sure is going to be a fun 10th year!
Lastly, Craig, Jet and I love being a part of such a special family and so blessed to have supportive people that we get to share our time with. We really wouldn’t have it any other way – Thank you for all your love and support over the years.
