Good day, we are running a online show case/competition if some of your students are interested
I wouldn't normally do this I have to thank Simone from Ellen Bunting Dance Studio. My little girl started dancing with Simone 2 years ago and the passion and love she shows for dancing is incredible. The confidence Hannah has shown makes me so proud and now in 2 weeks she is doing her first solo. Thank you Simone for what you and dancing have done for my little bear.
PE Is blessed with some amazing talent and it is vital that we nurture and develop our young (and not so young) up and coming performers and technicians so that not only they, but our whole performing arts scene continues to grow and thrive. G&S is presenting the first series of Savoy Theatre Workshops during the December holidays which will give anyone interested, from 13 upwards, the opportunity to learn more from some of some of our local experts.
These workshops cover a variety of both performing and technical disciplines and will run from 11-15th December. Each day there will be a morning and an afternoon session where participants can choose from up to 3 different workshops to attend. We currently have a great range of workshops led by some of PE’s top people in their field and covering many different styles of singing, acting and dancing as well as make-up, juggling, magic and technical skills.
The presenters are a who’s who of PE’s theatre scene. Linda-Louise Swain and Rose Cowpar are both award winning actresses and directors. David Limbert is a professional Lighting Designer with many years’ experience both in South Africa and on London’s West End. Award winning local music teachers Richard Campbell, Angela Freer and Ann Yates head up the singing team. Levern Botha, who will cover Contemporary dance, has worked extensively in professional companies all over South Africa and popular local dance teachers Andrea Morris and Simone Buchner, will lead the dance workshops. Brendon Peel, an amazing magician and mentalist, who was a hit at this year’s National Arts Festival and Cape Town Fringe as well as the Edinburgh Festival joins us to present a workshop on close-up magic. Wezile Megibe is one of South Africa’s leading practitioners of site specific work and David McCoy covers both juggling and music technology. Jacques Batista is a graduate of the Rhodes Drama department where he specialised in physical theatre, acting and contemporary dance, Jacques Batista has been actively engaged in theatre performance on a national level for many years. And is an educator with international experience. These are just some of the incredible line up of facilitators in store for participants.
The workshops are open to all interested parties from 13 years and up and no previous experience or training is required. The full week of 10 workshops will cost just R500 including all materials and supplies or you can select specific workshops during the week for just R60 each – cheaper than the movies!
are there any classes for women over 50? tap and/or jazz?

When learning new choreography brings on:

1. Falling props
2. Confused facial expressions
3. Giggles and weird hand gestures
4. Crash landings

Promise we pull ourselves together remarkably well before it’s stage time 💯🔥 Alexia Patsalos

Everyone thought that this would be an easy game of hopscotch, but this wasn’t a traditional version of the game 😎 Each “block” required the girls to do something different in the sequence, thus testing co-ordination, transference of weight, musicality and agility 🤩

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY ❤️❤️❤️

By no means is this all of them, but thank you to the moms who give up their time driving their kids to and from dancing (sometimes 7 days a week), who are always willing to lend a helping hand and who are always there with a kind word of encouragement. We love and appreciate you 🥰

Times are tough and Covid-19 has hit everyone hard. We see that every day at the shelter with the increasing number of animals brought in to us. We’re using up to 100kg of dog food a day and we are in desperate need of dry dog food. Small breed dog pellets are preferred as we can share that amongst all the dogs in our care. Any food donations will be greatly appreciated!
Food donations can be dropped off at Animal Welfare Society (Port Elizabeth); Canine Pet Boutique and Deli; Newton Park SUPERSPAR; Summerbreezz SUPERSPAR; SunriseLaundromat; The Pet Stop Wagtails Charity Shop AWS PE (Figtree & Albert Road branches).
Thank you for your continued support!
