What an amazing and eventful year 2017 was.

I enjoyed watching the students and teachers from many different performing arts schools coming together to pursue what they love best in the light and friendly atmosphere of Studio 53 Mackay.

This is what this building stands for and will continue in the same light in the year ahead.

We have been fortunate to have had so many different teachers and performers from all genres of the Arts world as well as examiners and past students grace the studios and halls of our wonderful studios.

Our guest book is brimming with famous names from the Australian Performing Arts World.

How exciting it must have been in 2017 for the students from all around our Mackay Region and beyond to have had so many wonderful opportunities right on their doorstep.

I am sure that they have benefited greatly from the knowledge of all of these incredibly talented people.

Already in 2018 we have some amazing new Workshops booked in and some favourite regulars set to return so watch this space.

I look forward to seeing the faces I know and lots of new ones too in 2018.

Bring it on!!!
