The instructor will be our very own Natalie Gnanasegran, Reyna Elena & Princess of Peace in 1998. She is an accomplished dancer in many disciplines of dance – Hiphop, Hawaiian/Polynesian and Filipino Folk.

Natalie is an instructor at Dancin’ Stars School of the Performing Arts.  We are very lucky to have her donate her time & also the use of 1 studio @ the dance school. This is Natalie’s 2nd year, at teaching the Royal Dance for our Gimilami Princesses & their escorts.

Dancin’ Stars School of the Performing Arts
7757 Edmonds Street
Burnaby, BC
A Gimilami Board Member will always be present @ the practices, to oversee & supervise.

• Please pack a nutritious bagged lunch for your daughter & the escort, however, cookies & juice will also be provided by the superversing Board Member.

• Please have your children wear non-marking footwear, as we don’t want to leave scuff marks on the studio floors.
• Girls should bring along a flowing skirt (not denim please) to practice in. (it will simulate their ballgown, & they ought to get used to holding the hem @ different times of the dance)
• Parents are encouraged to sit in & watch the practice if you so wish. If you’d like, you can also videotape the practice, if you think it will help your daughter/son practice the steps @ home.
• Parents, please bring a blank audio tape to the first practice, so that Natalie can make copies of the music for you.

For more information, please call Melanie de Castro, your Royal Dance Coordinator.
