I am dreading a night time finish, my DD is in bed at 7.30pm, so that would kill her.

It seems it's just me that can't get in  ddoh.gif .   We have a network and dh has just spent an hour trying everything he can think of (he's an IT guru  oomg.gif ) .   Seems our router doesn't like their website and won't go there, but only since they changed it to needing to be a logged-in member.  

I've sent them an email, am hoping they know what to do (other than get a new router).

So how's everyone going?   Are you in the midst of frantic sequinning and practising?   We are, you'd think I'd have learned to do the sequins as soon as I get them wouldn't you?

Hi everyone

I guess we are all in the middle of Comp session lol. My girls ahd their 2nd comp yesterday and have CVI next weekend. We've now had 3 comps in a row. They done well, they came second in Folk Dance yesterday despite competing agains div 3 teams. Victoria is front row centre for Folk, so I was very proud.

I'm very happy with the coach they have this year, the girls love her and are all loving calisthenics. It's a shame we'll have to leave the club when we move next year. We've found a club, Reynella, they are a championship club so will be intresting to see how the girls take to it. Got some pics from their first comp.

Hi Ladies,

I'm looking for something for my very active 3 year old DD to do.  Is she too little for calisthenics?  Is it worth doing something like this or sticking to dancing (ballet, tap, jazz)?

Also are there any clubs down near Rockingham?

Hi Koala's

My DD's have been doing calisthenics since they were 2/3 years old. It's my 7 year olds 5th year  biggrin.gif

I'm not familiar with WA, but here is the calisthenics WA site which has the clubs listed

http://www.calisthenicswa.asn.au/clubdetails/

I hope that helps. Calisthenics is a great sport, my girls had a comp this morning and absolutely love it.

DD had her cali concert today. We really nice to watch all the other teams items. The skill on the older girls is amazing!

DD earnt 27 medals this year ohmy.gif , was a great surprise.

She is now practising for her levels which are on the 9th December, (she has her operation the week before so I am hoping she is up to it).

I am enrolling her in a cali summer school in January as she really needs to work on her flex. She moves up to juniors next year and I am thinking that is a huge jump wink.gif

anyway here is DD with her medals in her march costume

Great pic Nicole original.gif Hi ladies original.gif

I don't often post in here as DD dances and cali seems like a foreign world. Just after some advice on how to help her be more flexible - she is a great little dancer but is frustrated by her lack of flexibility when doing backbends, roll throughs, splits etc and apart from encouraging her to stretch and practice I don't know what else to suggest to her. Her teachers are not particularly helpful in that department either. They just want to see them do it.

Hi everyone.... haven't been here for sometime....


Heaps of dancing coming up - as is usual at this time of year.. lots of busy practises etc.

MissDemeanour - How old is your DD? Unfortunately it really is a practise everyday type of thing.. maybe try varying the stretches for her to make it more interesting... maybe she coudl work with a rubber band to help her stretch.

Nicole... Hollie looks fabulous.. congrats to her and her team!

Hi Carmen original.gif

DD starts tonight, she's moving up to juniors---She is so excited. I am more excited that the fees have only gone up $4 extra this year  biggrin.gif

My daughter started back last Wednesday
she's doing her baby class (jazz, ballet and cheer) as well as tap this year and is so happy to be back.
Is it sad i can't wait for concert time this year

#65 Guest_Contento_*

Posted 11 February 2010 - 07:35 PM

We are moving late June now so it'd mean we will miss comps and concerts for the year completely sad.gif.

They will do terms 1-2 in Victoria and term 4 in SA, they start their cali year in term 4 in SA ready for May comps. I guess with moving as well as having a baby on the way and working, it'll probably be a good thing I'll have no costumes to make or comps to attend, but I'm still sad about it.

#66 MsDemeanor

Posted 12 April 2010 - 08:41 PM

Ahhh me again popping my head in like I always do to stress about costumes. I need a neo costume (I think you guys call them lyrical) and a jazz. So not having any luck agreeing with DD 13.

#67 Guest_The 7 Dwarfs_*

Posted 26 April 2010 - 02:42 AM

My girls aren't currently doing Cali, after we sold the house we figured it just best to concentrate on the move. Plus they are getting costumes ready and all set up for comps which we wont be there for, so probably just best to wait till we get to Adelaide. It's only 2 terms, I'm sure we'll survive lol.

#68 belleboysandgirl

Posted 09 June 2010 - 11:19 AM

7 Dwarfs you will probably find the girls will be able to start Cali in Adelaide after August. Most clubs now start their work for the next year not long after August comps.

Just wondering if anyone else is going to Nationals on the Gold Coast this year?  DD2 made the juniors rep team, so we will of course be going up there to watch her  wink.gif - be nice to know if any other 'eb kids' are competing as well.  At the moment with normal club training, rep team training and her solo/graceful training sessions I feel like we are doing nothing but drive her to and from calisthenics!!

My DD has qualified for Nationals this year, but in Dancing, not Calisthenics. Bring on Gold Coast 2012!

Hi All!  My DD11 is a dancer and having just read a thread about hair removal I'm just wondering what you all have done with your daughters especially with them wearing leotards etc.... waxing/shaving/creams etc?  What about bikini line as my daughter's is becoming more obvious.  Any tips?
