Students dancing for the love of it
Joy: The teachers at Capital Dance Studios encourage students who are passionate about dance.
CAPITAL Dance Studios
provides its students with an
exciting opportunity to share
their passion for dance in an
The studio was founded in
1999 by Melissa Chapman, who
passed the studio on to Amy
Truong and Cleo Ludski.
Ms Truong and Ludski were
students of Ms Chapman's for
20 years and have been teach-
ers for more than a decade.
Ms Ludski said that the studio
provides a supportive environ-
ment for students ranging in
age from three years-old to
"We don't mind if you don't
know how to dance as long as
you are there and you love it,
that's what we pride ourselves
on. That's our mission state-
ment -- dance for the love of it,"
Ms Ludski said.
The studio provides classes
in jazz, tap, ballet (including
pointe), hip-hop, contempor-
ary, lyrical and musical theatre.
Ms Ludski is proud that the
studio offers children an oppor-
tunity to embrace dance and
enjoy the social benefits as
"We've got a no bullying
tolerance policy so our kids feel
safe being there. A lot of them
go to school to together but they
also make friends with kids
from other schools purely
because they share a love of
dance," she said.
There are eight other teach-
ers at the studio as well as six
The studio holds two con-
certs each year, one of which is
a tribute for former studio
director Michelle Chapman.
Ms Chapman contracted MS
in 2011 so the current students
and teachers hold an event for
The event includes a dance
performance, and fundraisers
including a sausage sizzle and
"It's usually held in Novem-
ber but we'll be looking to have
it earlier this year," Ms Ludski
"There is also an end of year
concert at The Canberra
The directors are extremely
passionate about teaching.
They enjoy watching the dan-
cers grow and improve, as well
as the relationships they share
with their students.
"We are really like a big
family, we share the happy and
sad times in each other's lives.
That is part of the reason why
it's so popular, kids can just
come here and be themselves,"
Ms Ludski said.
"If anyone is interested in
coming along and trying a
class, we start on the third of
February, so they can just give
us a call.
''There is a whole bunch of
new beginner classes, we really
want to give people the oppor-
tunity to learn at any age."

Discover the benefits of natural therapy
IF you want to study in style for a
career that soothes your soul, Om
Shanti College of Natural Therapies is
the only place to go.
At the college you are taught by
current practitioners and industry
experts. The small class sizes offer
personalised service and a nurturing
"We offer a centre of excellence in
natural therapies for the community,"
chief executive Luciana Todd said.
She also spoke of her vision of
creating natural therapies as an allied
health service as the mainstream
health system is eroded by funding
cuts and more people requiring care.
The courses at Om Shanti College
are innovative with practical training
and exposure to real clients with real
"It is imperative that people wanting
to learn natural therapies do so in a
face-to-face environment, not by cor-
respondence," Ms Todd said.
"I get that people are time poor, so
we offer day, evening and weekend
courses. Some of our theory courses
are by correspondence but all of our
practical classes must be completed in
a classroom if people want a robust
career in natural therapies.
"Our courses are perfect for people
leaving the public service, parents
wanting more quality time with the
family, and it is always great to have
young school leavers and retirees in
the same class."
