It's safe to say it's been a crazy couple of weeks for everyone, and at 6th Position there is no exception. I'd like to begin by thanking every one of our teachers, dancers and community members - your support in this time has definitely been noticed and I'm so proud to be leading this amazing studio as we jet? over the next hurdles.
This week we said goodbye to Genevieve Chan, from her position as owner and director of 6th Position. Gen was the founder of 6th Position and without her great vision, determination and leadership, this place would never have been more than a dream.
On a personal level, Gen is also a friend and mentor to many people at 6P, including myself. Thank you Gen - your support and belief in me has been truly amazing and I'm so glad I rocked up to that first tiny lyrical class on City Walk, back in 2017.
Gen will still be in and around the (virtual) 6P studio and will continue teaching at 6th Position.
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Grace Hogan and I have been teaching jazz and lyrical/contemporary at 6th Position since 2017. I grew up doing gymnastics, but fell in love with dancing as an adult - I literally went from performing one lyrical piece when I was 18 to performing 6 different styles the following year. I'm sure many of you can relate!
I'm incredibly excited to be taking on this role and to meet those of you who I don't already know, even amidst this difficult time. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. You can contact me at the same studio email address: 6thPosition.firstname.lastname@example.org
Our online class timetable will be up by Easter Monday (13 April) for classes starting on Tuesday! Much of it will look the same as our usual timetable, with a few changes due to teacher capacity. Most classes will also now be 1 hour in length to help us manage the transition to the virtual world.
From Monday you will be able to sign up for online classes as usual through the website or the MindBody app. New pricing applies:
Single Pass: $12.00
7 Day Pass: $30.00 for unlimited classes over 7 days
4 Week Pass: $100 for unlimited classes over 4 weeks
If you're keen as a bean and want to start setting up, we will be running our online classes through Zoom. You can sign up for free to Zoom at https://zoom.us/
All links to join the Zoom meeting for your class will be sent out 30 minutes before class to your email address as it is listed on MindBody. You will need to ensure you are signed up to class at least 45 minutes before it starts.
I can't wait to dance with you all!
