TO OUR DEAR STUDENTS AND FRIENDS,
It’s with great excitement and anticipation, but also with a sad, heavy heart that we will be saying goodbye to our beautiful studio @ Coachmans’ Crossing after 5 years of enjoying this elegant, large dance space!
We have been dreaming to build our own studio and property for many years and we can at last say that we are achieving just that. After paying huge rentals for large commercial studio space, over the last 27 years, we at last decided not to renew our lease with our Landlord, Broll again.
We are moving our studio to 23 Nancy Drive, Klevehill Park, Bryanston from 15th December 2018 and hope to continue business as per usual from mid – January 2019.
All our Instructors will be moving with us to our brand-new building in a secure boomed area. Physical Address: Down Main street, right in Bryanston Drive, Left in Mount street, Right in Nancy Drive, nr 23. (For those who know the Landmark Michael Mount Waldorf School and Organic Market, the Studio is four minutes away from there).
We have decided to continue with Private AND Group lessons from our current studio space at Coachmans Crossing until 14 December 2018.
PRIVATE LESSONS: For us to finish the building process and to make the move a little easier from 9 till 31st January we will most probably move between 2 studio spaces. This will be: Nadia Katz studio (Corner William Nicol and Republic), and the Secret garden at Norscot Manor, (Lesley drive.)
GROUPCLASSES: We won’t be teaching group classes from the 9January till 31st January. All Group classes will resume from the 1st of February. To those of you on the 2 months special free group classes package, your lessons will be moved to 1 Feb 2019.
SOCIALS: Regarding our very popular socials every second week, we intend continue with these at different venues, of which will be advertised in due time.
Pending further confirmation… there will be a holiday/New Years’ Social on the 11th January at the Apollo Hotel (Bram Fischer drive – 3kms from our current studio) in Randburg. We hope to see you there DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY!
OUR CALENDER AND PROGRAMME UNTIL 1 FEB NEXT YEAR IS AS FOLLOWS:
- SATURDAY 10 NOVEMBER- VIENNESE BALL @ VALVERDE
- FRIDAY 16 NOVEMBER- SOCIAL @ THE DANCE JUNXION
- SUNDAY 25 NOVEMBER- SADTA NATIONALS IN DURBAN

- 11 January – Holiday/New Years, Social @ Apollo hotel
The studio closes for the holidays on the 14th of December 2018 – Wed 9 January 2019. We hope and trust that you will continue your dancing with us. We are very dependent on your goodwill and blessing to make the move easy and successful.
PS. We are trying to sell certain décor and equipment in the Studio, as we won’t be needing it in the new studio. Please let us know if you are interested or know of someone who might be interested in some of the following at a very negotiable price:
