About Omnes Arts Circle

A note from Taisha, Owner & Founder of Omnes Arts Circle...

Owning an arts centre has been a dream of mine, and it felt like a no-brainer to start with a music studio, and build from there. Soon after completing my Master's degree, I moved back to my hometown of Perth to open The Music Circle in July of 2016. What started as a small studio in my little house, with only me teaching piano and voice, grew quickly to a studio of over 100 weekly students, six teachers, a youth choir, preschool classes, and offerings in piano, voice, guitar, and ukulele both at the studio and in four elementary schools in surrounding communities.

As of July 2018, the company name has changed to Omnes Arts Circle. “Omnes” (pronounced Omm-ness) means “all” in Latin, which fits because we’re expanding our programming to encompass The Music Circle, The Dance Circle, and The Theatre Circle. That’s right: we’ll be bringing the trifecta of performing arts together under one roof in Omnes Arts Circle!

These changes were all made possible after purchasing Arts in Motion Perth School of Dance from Ms. Svetlana Timtsenko. The Omnes studio will be in Arts in Motion’s current location. The Dance Circle will continue with Arts in Motion’s usual programming, offering ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, and creative movement... and maybe even some fun new classes! Svetlana will keep teaching many of these classes, and she’ll lead the way in the year-end show for next year! What will be different? I’ll be running the registration, calendar and communication for the Dance programs.

The Music Circle will continue with current music offerings. We’ll still provide private lessons (both in school and in studio), Musicplay classes, and the Omnes Youth Choir. Plus, we’re excited to be adding even more music classes in September! 

The only thing that’s going to be completely new is the Theatre Circle. I’m thrilled to say that we’ll be offering weekly group classes for children of various ages. We’ll be exploring theatre techniques, movement, character, and much more! Then we’ll finish the year off with a performance! Stay tuned for more details on that...

I want to thank Svetlana, who will be helping me with the transition. While I’ve loved the experience of running The Music Circle, I’ll be needing Svetlana’s dance expertise in this particular business venture. She’s truly helped my vision come to life, and it means so much to me that she’s helped make this possible.

I am absolutely overcome when I think of how far this business has come in the last two years, and this couldn’t have happened without my dedicated teachers and students. When I think about all the people we’ll be able to reach through the new studio, I know the decision to expand was worthwhile!

Thank you all for your endless support! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly. I would be happy to answer any of your inquiries!

Yours in arts education,

Taisha Lesser
